Let it snow... Winter tyres keep us moving

Over the past few winters the UK has experienced some extreme weather conditions including severe cold and heavy snow. Sybaris keeps a watchful eye on weather conditions and takes the necessary precautions to ensure safe and uninterrupted service to our customers. So at this time of year, we fit winter tyres to our fleet of vehicles.

Why fit winter tyres?

Winter tyres are engineered specifically to improve safety and increase control when driving in cold weather conditions - especially in snow or ice. They work by increasing road traction and improving road grip for accelerating, cornering and braking – delivering significantly reduced braking distances. Fitting winter tyres helps ensure that whatever the weather we will be ready, and able, to transport you safely to your destination while you relax and enjoy the journey in the warmth and comfort of one of our sumptuous Mercedes cars.

How they work (the technical bit)

Winter tyres are made using a softer rubber compound and have deeper tread grooves than summer tyres. The surface of the tread blocks is covered with hundreds of little jagged slits called sipes which are key to achieving improved grip on wet or ice-covered surfaces. Snow that gathers in the tread grooves also helps with grip on loose snow as snow clings to snow. The extra deep tread grooves also help the tyres disperse surface water thus increasing resistance to aquaplaning.

In safe hands

In the depths of the bad weather of the last two winters Sybaris Chauffeurs was able to reach places that others couldn’t simply because our vehicles and drivers were properly prepared and safely equipped to make the journey. We do everything possible to ensure the comfort, convenience and safety of our passengers at all times - whatever the weather. We are one of only a handful of companies outside London to have been awarded a 5 star company membership of the Licenced Private Hire Car Association an organization that seeks to promote high levels of service, safety and standards. So next time you are concerned about making a journey in wet, cold or snowy conditions call Sybaris - you couldn’t be in safer hands.

I have been using Sybaris Chauffeurs for several years for both business and private travel. I have never been let down and their time keeping is impeccable.
