"YOUR OLD WINTER TYRES WILL SEE YOU THROUGH THE SUMMER” AND OTHER DANGEROUS MYTHS

Posted on 22 May 2019


Three experts from ŠKODA’s chassis development department debunk the most common mistaken assumptions people make about tyres. Are you absolutely sure that everything you thought you knew about tyres isn’t just a myth? You could be placing your life in danger.

We hear a lot of “clever” tips in our lives, and some of them become so entrenched that we accept them as true without even asking ourselves whether they have any basis in reality. Let’s take a look at some of the most common misconceptions about tyres.

Myth 1: You can eke the last out of your used winter tyres in the summer

Myth 2: Put your more worn tyres on the back wheels

Myth 3: All-Season tyres all year long

Myth 4: Save yourself some money – don’t bother with the tyres recommended by the carmarker.

Myth 5: Summer tyres are ok for your 4x4, even in winter.
