The Mastersteel winter tyres are developed in the same high-tech way as the summer and all-season tyres. The optimized compound (rubber compound) remains flexible by adding silica, even at very low temperatures. Grip is therefore better maintained. Thanks to the smart pattern construction, water, dirt and snow can be quickly removed from under the tire, which greatly reduces the chance of aquaplaning. The driving and braking properties are maintained. This allows the tire to continue to deliver maximum performance on snow and in very wet conditions.
