Snow dusting Wheelwright HQ - Winter Wheel Time…
Wheelwright HQ, located in Aylesford, Kent, is receiving its first dusting of Snow for Winter 2011/12 - definitely a strong signal that its time to fit those Winter Wheels & Tyres.
With temperatures regularly dipping below 7°c for the past three weeks, the Snow has just emphasised the need for Winter Wheels & Tyres. Our Team has been inundated with calls for our Winter packages this morning as the snow moves further South.
As you may or may not be aware, Winter Tyre supplies are very erratic and with demand this year being higher than ever before (largely thanks to our promotion of the need for Winter wheels and tyres), we are glad to have stocked up this year - but we advise asking your retailer about winter packages sooner rather than later as stocks are still limited.
We offer direct, bolt-on applications - with packages of winter steel or alloy wheels, mounted with winter tyres.
Winter tyres are designed to perform better in temperatures lower than 7°c. Their rubber compound is softer, meaning it remains supple in the lower temperatures, retaining grip, and their tread is improved with the addition of sipes within the tread pattern, which gather snow and push away moisture to improve grip on slippery winter roads.

The Monday Morning Blog - 24/10/11
“Don’t be left out in the Cold this Halloween”
So, this is the first in our series of Monday Morning Blogs - something you’ll see pop up in your Blog Feed, Twitter Feed, Facebook Stream each and every Monday going forwards.
We’ll be furnishing you with wheel-based news and thoughts on the wheel & tyre industry, as well as new product news updates and photos.
Halloween is fast approaching (next Monday!), the nights are drawing in, the cold is getting closer, so we thought it would be a good time to raise awareness of winter wheel and tyres… Don’t be left out in the cold with the ghosts and ghouls!
Winter wheels are a creating a real buzz in the industry; and this buzz is finally trickling down into the conscience of the general public. I saw three articles in the national press and a further article in my local weekend newspaper this weekend, all alluding to the need to invest in winter wheels and tyres for safety and, believe it or not, economical benefits.
Just think of the cost of refurbishing your alloy wheels; or even worse, the damage to your insurance premium after having an accident on what are set to be another winter of treacherous UK roads!
Temperatures have already started to dip below 7°C, in the mornings and evenings (when most people are driving their school-run or commute), and this really is a signal to invest in a change of footwear for your vehicle.
Wheelwright are leading the field in offering a winter wheel and tyre solution - with our intrinsic links to KFZ Stahlrad, part of the Alcar Group, who manufacture Original Equipment Steel Wheels; and our fantastic pricing on simple 5-spoke alloy designs such as the Dezent RE, we really have made it as easy and affordable as possible to make the investment.
Couple either alloy or steel wheels with our Jinyu Winter Tyres (or upgrade to a premium winter tyre), and you have a bolt-on package, which simply replace your summer/all-season wheels for the winter season. Wheelwright really are making it as simple as possible to improve the safety of your vehicle during the winter months.
