Even with the best tyres, you will only have a safer driving experience if they fit the season. Ultimately, they are your direct contact with the road – which is sometimes freezing cold, sometimes baking hot.
Your Volkswagen's wheels are crucial to your driving safety – and for the entire visual appearance of the vehicle. You can rely on winter and summer wheel assemblies from Volkswagen Accessories.
The general rule is: You should be driving with winter tyres in wintry weather. Otherwise, you risk a fine of up to 80 euro, having a penalty point recorded at Flensburg and – most important – your safety. Our recommendation: Change to winter tyres as soon as temperatures fall below 7 °C.
Why should you switch to winter tyres? Quite simple: They ensure that you have more grip, your braking distance is shorter and hence your risk of accident is lower at below 7 °C – no matter whether it is snowing or raining.
