Why buy Winter Tires?
- Compromise-free: Winter tires have both a flexible rubber compound and unique tread design that’s made exclusively for use on snow, slush and ice and in cold temperatures.
- Maximized AWD performance: Proper tires for the season gives your AWD system plenty more grip to work with, allowing it to do its job with maximum effectiveness.
- Not just for snow and ice: Did you know that all-season or summer performance tires get really, really hard when it’s cold outside? Since effective traction relies on tires being soft and malleable against the roads surface, hard tires can be a recipe for disaster.In cold weather, even on dry roads, the softer, more flexible rubber used in the construction of winter tires provides that all-important give that all-season tires lose when it’s cold out.
- Longer tire life: It goes without saying, but hey, it’s worth a mention. Swapping to a set of winter tires will extend the life of your all-season rubber, while it sits the season out in your garage. This can help offset the up-front cost of your winter tires. Many drivers prefer to mount their winter tires on a set of black steel wheels, and leave the gleaming factory alloys away from the salt and sand.
- Enhanced safety system functionality: Never before have automobiles worked so hard to keep drivers and their families safe. Today, highly advanced stability control systems, braking control systems and even hazard-detection features like pre-collision auto-braking are becoming more common.Remember, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, traction assist and stability control systems don’t make traction. They simply help maximize the use of traction that’s available. Provide these systems with more physical grip by installing winter tires, and they’ll work better at keeping you and yours safe.
- Thirty feet: In most driving situations, thirty feet isn’t a major distance. It’s about as long as a pair of Ford Focuses. The distance across a small intersection. At the highway speed limit, you’re covering thirty feet three times per second.But, when you’ve got to stop for a red light at a busy intersection covered in snow and ice, that 30 becomes a very, very big deal.Thankfully, a decent set of winter tires can easily slash 30 feet or more from your stopping distances on snow, possibly making the difference between avoiding and entering an accident.
