Winter is officially here and it’s time to face the cold hard facts: Is your vehicle prepared?
One of the most important things to consider when adapting to the colder climate is your vehicle’s tires. Having winter tires installed on your vehicle carries many advantages, including these 5:
1. Winter Tires Can Improves Your Stopping Distance
Special tread designs on winter tires help improve grip with the surface, allowing the vehicle to stop faster on snow and ice.
2. Winter Tires Can Provide Better Handling & Control
Winter tires can handle corners better than all-season tires in winter conditions.
3. Winter Tires Are Not Just For Ice & Snow
Soft rubber compounds remain flexible for better handling when temperates drop below 7º Celsius.
4. Winter Tires Can Save You Money
Many insurance companies provide discounts when winter tires are installed on vehicles, saving you money now and over time! Plus changing tires seasonally reduces wear on your original tires, helping extend the life and value of both sets of tires!
5. Vehicles With AWD/4WD Benefit From Winter Tires Too
All Wheel Drive or 4 Wheel Drive can help accelerate in winter conditions, but winter tires provide traction to help any vehicle corner and stop in ice and snow.
