The Importance of Winter Tires

It’s almost that time again – that time when you need to change out your current tires for winter tires. When snow and ice begin to accrue on the road, you want to be ready to handle it with ease and confidence. That is part of what snow tires bring you, but they also provide safety.

Why is it important to change to winter tires, though? Why can’t you just use the current tires you have?

The main difference between winter tires and all-season or summer tires is rather simple: winter tires have been designed to withstand the brutal cold, the ice, and the snow. The rubber on a winter tire is more flexible, whereas the rubber on your regular tires will stiffen and make it harder for you to handle the road.

Furthermore, winter tires are designed with a ton of tiny slots in the rubber. These slots help your tire grip ice and snow with ease. Regular tires do not have these same capabilities.
