MINI Winter Tyres

With average British winter temperatures dipping below 7°C, MINI customers can now equip their cars with specially developed winter tyres. With more natural rubber in their compound to give extra grip at lower temperatures, winter tyres are the perfect way to stay safe in the ice, snow and rain. And, with MINI's winter wheel and tyre packages, style conscious drivers don't have to compromise; both steel and alloy rim design combinations are available across the entire range.
