Volvo has launched its new Winter Tyre Programme. The scheme is a response to last January’s heavy snowfall, which caused misery for millions of motorists. Volvo is offering drivers the option of swapping their normal road tyres for winter versions. The alloy wheel and tyre (Pirelli or Continental) packages start from £949+VAT. Customers can store their summer wheels and tyres with Volvo, either with their local dealership, or Volvo’s ‘Tyre Hotel’ where the ‘spare’ set of wheels and tyres are stored and the correct wheels fi tted every six months, for a twice yearly charge of £85 inc VAT. Visit your local dealer for details on the scheme for your XC60, 70 and 90.
