    Loss of grip winter tyres

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Today it was about 5-7 degrees so mild UK weather. Hasn't been raining but the car felt squirmy. Even with winter tyres. Not sure if the pressure is too high on them bit I never had this with summer tyres in this weather. Anyone got any ideas why this might be happening. Tread looks good.

    Also car this morning hesitated to start. Not sure if I let off the break too quickly but was odd.

    Winter tires are designed to perform in winter temps and as such they will feel squirmy in warmer weather. Conversely summer tires will become stiff and worthless in cold snowy weather.
