Do I REALLY Need to Change My Tires this Winter?

Three Reasons to Switch Your Summer Tires for Winter Tires

Every year the same question comes up and the answer is always: yes, you need to put on your winter tires. The cost of buying winter tires can seem like a pain but the cost of a collision is worse.

Snow tires can make all the difference in your driving experience and can actually save you money in the long-run. Check out our three reasons to buy snow tires below and let us know if you have any questions!

  • Better Traction: This goes without saying but winter tires are better suited for winter driving and are engineered for better traction. They optimize your road grip for slippery road conditions so you mitigate your risk of slipping, sliding and getting stuck. Whether it’s deep snow or black ice, snow tires can keep you, and those around you, safe.
  • Preserve Your Summer or All-Season Tires: Summer and all-season tires are not designed for winter driving. The cold weather conditions increase the wear on your tires and could cause you to have to change them sooner than normal.
  • Saves Money: Since you won’t be wearing out your summer or all-season tires as quickly, you won’t need to spend money to buy new ones as often. You can keep swapping out your tires between the seasons and optimize their longevity. The other way you save money is by reducing the likelihood of a collision. This is true of a collision with another vehicle or sliding off the road into a tree or street sign.
