A true winter tire for the Mini. The v-shaped tread design of SV-3 tire ensures added security in all driving conditions, with increased contact patch, better braking, and superior grip on ice. Winter tires are not just for driving in the snow; because of the rubber blend, winter tires remain soft and pliable in cold temperatures, whereas conventional tires can become hard. DOT-approved. Sold each; recommended to be installed in sets of four.
