Delticom: Your SUV needs winter tyres too

Four wheel drive alone isn’t enough - SUV’s also need winter tyres

Delticom AG, Hannover – 29.10.2014: Many drivers feel as though their four wheel drive SUV is invincible on the winter roads.

More grip means more safety and it also reduces braking distance.
