Do you really need winter tires in winter?
Some drivers try to use all-season tires throughout the winter, but at Precision Automotive, we advise against this. All-season tires begin to lose their ability to grip the road in temperatures as mild as seven degrees Celsius. Given this, you can probably imagine how little traction they can give you at negative seven. That’s why it’s prudent to switch to winter tires when the cold weather hits.
What makes snow tires the best for winter driving?
Winter tires have sturdy rubber compounds, the right tread designs and tread patterns, and siping to give you the traction you need, even in extreme cold. It’s important to buy the right snow tire for your vehicle, though. The best winter tire for a truck may not be the best for aluxury sedan, for example.
Whether your vehicle is front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive can also affect your choice of winter tire. At Precision Automotive, our technicians can recommend the perfect winter tires for you.
What about all-weather tires?
In contrast to all-season tires, all-weathers are actually rated for winter driving. You can tell if a tire is suitable for winter driving if it has the snowflake pictogram on it. All-weathers bear this symbol, so they’re safe for winter driving, though they may not offer all the specific features that some winter tires provide.
