It may be seen as time consuming to learn about winter tyres, but it could save motorists significant amounts of money on their car insurance.

New research has shown that the vast majority of drivers in the UK have little or no knowledge about the benefits of having their car suitably prepared for the cold winter climate.

A poll from mytyres.co.uk has discovered that just six per cent of motorists would consider buying winter tyres.

In addition, 37 per cent of people admitted that they have no idea what winter tyres are, whereas 31 per cent were unaware they could purchase them in Britain.

Younger drivers were found to be less knowledgeable about the advantages of winter tyres, which include better traction in snow and icy conditions in addition to shorter stopping distances.

Many motorists were also found to believe that winter tyres are considerably more expensive than their regular alternatives.
