FAQ about tire switches
If your contract includes winter tires, Alphabet will order the winter tyres at a selected Alphabet partner. Each September, you will receive an invitation by a tyre fitting centre to have your tires swapped. In early April, you will get another invitation to switch back to summer tires.
For a new car, delivered between October and February, you will receive an invitation by mail to switch tires approximately two weeks after the delivery.
Winter tires significantly increase the motorist’s safety during the cold winter months, amongst other things ensuring improved grip and reduced aquaplaning. Further details are available here at all times.
Alphabet has selected a series of tire brands for its drivers. These are excellent quality brands that ensure the safety of the driver.
If the tread depth of your summer tires is less than or equal to 2 mm, it is time to have them checked. Winter tires have a 3 mm minimum tire tread depth.
For worn out tyres (that is to say, not when you are switching from summer to winter tires or vice versa) you are free to call round to the fitting centre of your choice.
Alphabet does not. Some tire centers do, or you can purchase them. All costs are for the customer. Please make sure that snow chains can be used for your vehicle (to be checked with the garage). If damage occurs due to snow chains, the costs will be for the client.
