When the temperature drops to 7°C or lower, your ordinary tyres start to suffer. The rubber reacts badly to the cold – therefore gripping and braking performance is not as good as it should be. Fitting winter tyres from our range to your ŠKODA during the winter months can make a big difference to your safety on the road, making stopping distances considerably shorter. We have a wide range of tyres for you to choose from, at prices which are far from chilling.
Demand for winter tyres was unprecedented last year, so act today to ensure you’re prepared before the temperature dips. Please speak to your
local retailer for more information.
Bald or worn tyres are dangerous in good weather, and downright deadly in winter. Not to mention being illegal, of course.
We can check if your tread’s wearing a little thin. Then, if any of your tyres do need replacing, we can recommend the right size and speed rating – based on the latest information from ŠKODA – to ensure you get the best and safest handling and performance.
All ŠKODAs now come with a tyre repair kit too – comprising of a lifting jack, spanner, tool box, fastening strap, and screw to hold the spare in place when stored – rather than a spare. But if you would feel happier with a spare wheel on board too, we can provide one. The spare wheel starts from just £127, or get an extra repair kit with it from only £168 RRP.
We also offer a tyre hotel service for £120 per year, please ask your local retailer for details.
Make sure the bad weather doesn’t stop you getting to work this winter, with Snocks™. High quality, elasticised Snow Socks that give you traction on snow covered roads – great for winter driving holidays, or simply setting off safely from your snowy driveway.
There’s a good reason why winter tyres are compulsory across many parts of Europe. Winter tyre braking distances are considerably shorter in bad weather conditions – wet, cold, frost, ice, and snow.

We can help you guard against ice, snow, rain and fog with a comprehensive ŠKODA Winter Health Check for a cool £25.
