Porsche Winter Tyres and Wheels

Porsche Winter Tyres

Once the Porsche centre has changed the wheels over to a winter set, summer tyres can be stored by the centre until the spring, when they can be refitted.

A variety of winter wheel and tyre sets have been made available at Porsche dealerships across the UK, specifically designed for added safety and improve performance and practicality during cold weather.

Summer tyres use a rubber compound which stiffens at temperatures under 7 degrees Celsius. Porsche recommends the use of N-rated winter tyres which maintain adhesion and traction at temperatures below 7 degrees.

Benefits of Winter Tyres
  • braking distances are shorter compared with summer tyres
  • traction is increased on slippery surfaces
  • your vehicle will continue to provide the high standards of driving safety for which Porsche is renowned
  • the tyres have been optimised to produce less noise, rolling resistance is reduced and fuel economy is improved

Tyres with Porsche N ratings are specifically designed for Porsche vehicles, meeting high standards for driving stability, comfort and fuel consumption. They can also offer compatibility with Porsche chassis control systems with no risk of damage to components or wheel clearance problems.

Once the Porsche centre has changed the wheels over to a winter set, summer tyres can be stored by the centre until the spring, when they can be refitted.
