Should You Get Winter Tires This Year, and Why?

Get Winter TiresThe winter months are finally approaching, and you know what that means: snow, and lots of it. Luckily, there is one easy way that you can prepare for wintery roads, regardless of what sort of vehicle you drive.

With winter tires, your chances of driving through the snow without a slip or a loss of traction are much, much higher, especially compared to standard, all-season tires, with which most vehicles tend to operate.

Winter tires are designed specifically for snow and ice, though they also perform beautifully on dry roads. Compare this design to that of all-season tires, which aim to tackle each season as best as possible, sacrificing winter integrity.

Not only are winter tires better for driving in the snow and ice, but also, they are created with a different type of tread rubber that stays flexible at lower temperatures. Regular tires tend to freeze up and even deflate when the temperatures get cool.

If you drive on all-season tires this winter, you certainly won’t be doomed, but why risk it? If you are in a snowy area or have a snowy commute, consider switching it up this year with winter tires.
