Peugeot UK launches winter tyre scheme
Peugeot UK has announced its own winter tyre scheme, following in the footsteps of other manufacturers, such as BMW, Suzuki and Volvo. The company’s new “swap and store” service being provided by dealers enables customers to equip their cars with four cold weather tyres and have their Summer ones placed in storage.
Peugeot dealers will offer four services; a set of cold weather tyres complete with alloy wheels and storage, a set of tyres with steel wheels and storage or a set of tyres to replace their existing ones and storage. Finally, dealers are able to supply and fit the winter tyres only, allowing customers to store their Summer tyres themselves.
While there will be dealers who will store the tyres on site, a majority will be placed in the Tyre Hotel, a bespoke facility employed to store tyres in the correct conditions to prevent any damage or distortion.
David Higgins, parts and service director for Peugeot, said: “With Winter almost upon us, switching to cold weather tyres makes total sense if you want to increase your safety while on the roads. Our scheme has been designed to offer customers a complete, trouble free service.”
