Buy Nordic tyres

Nordic tyres (also called "friction tyres", "ice tyres" or "contact tyres") are used in regions which experience the most extreme climatic conditions, such as those found in Scandinavian countries.

The Nordic tyre is an intermediate solution between "winter tyres used in central Europe" and studded tyres. They are specially designed for driving on icy, snow-packed and particularly slippery roads.

At 50 kph (30 mph) on an icy road, a car fitted with Nordic tyres will need 18 m (60 feet) less distance to come to a complete stop compared to conventional winter tyres.
