Winter tyres, more accurately called “cold weather” tyres;
Feature a snowflake symbol on the side, and are made from a softer compound.
That means they’re still soft enough to provide the grip you need in temperatures below 7oC.
They also have a different tread pattern, with fine grooves or “sipes” cut into each tread block that bite into the snow better.
Not only do winter tyres reduce stopping distances in snow and ice, but also in wet weather below 7oC.
What’s more, they help with cornering performance,
enabling you to turn the car in circumstances where you might otherwise skid straight on.

Excellent service, nice prices. Very friendly staff. I think they must be trained by an F1 team, they waste no time in getting you sorted.

We had a puncture on our BMW X3 and every garage we spoke to said "Give Barney's a ring" this place has a great reputation and after one visit you can see why. Great bunch of guys. Highly recommended.

When I first ordered my tyres I ordered the wrong size. I was advised by staff of the correct size and they were delivered a day or so later. Staff were friendly and very helpful and efficient. Although it was busy, I didn't have to wait long for my tyres to be fitted. Would definitely recommend.

What a great place! Here on holiday and got a puncture. Tried several places who could not fit us in. Pulled up at Barney's to be greeted with a smile and a we can fix it attitude. Within minutes the tyre was off and being repaired for a very reasonable price. Would throughly recommend and if ever I came back to the IOW and had a problem would go nowhere else! Great service.
