Its that time of the year to start thinking about winter tires!
Winter is fast approaching! Make sure to keep your vehicle riding safely and smoothly with a set of snow or winter tires. Many people who live in colder climates think that purchasing all-season tires is good enough. Think of it this way, if an all-season tire is a tennis shoe then a snow tire is a heavy duty winter boot.
When temperatures drop it becomes harder for rubber to conform to the surface of the road. Winter or snow tires are made of a softer rubber, allowing them better flexibility in colder climates. This enhanced flexibility allows them to better grip the road whereas a regular tire would turn hard and brittle in the colder temperatures.
Vehicle technology like antilock brakes and all-wheel drive won’t help if your tire can’t keep a solid grip on the road; consider purchasing a set of winter tires from Tireteam.com!
