Adrian's car having Winter tyres fitted at Dove Tyres in Dove Holes.  

Winter tyres use a tread rubber compound (high silica content) and have a tread pattern specifically designed to retain flexibility in low temperatures (below +7C).  The tread on these tyres is much more flexible, giving a better grip and safer braking.  

The old Summer tyres are now hibernating in Adrian's shed, waiting for Spring!
