Now’s the time to buy snow tires (winter tires) in Madison. But hurry, a money-saving deal on Goodyear tires ends tomorrow.
The holidays are ending this week, but winter is just beginning. You know that means the heavy winter weather is still to come. That can mean slick, slippery roads. One of the best ways to cope safely with those roads is by having snow tires, also called winter tires, rather than all-weather or summer tires.
“Winter tires can provide enhanced braking performance in snowy and icy conditions. These tires perform well in all types of winter conditions – snow, ice, sleet, slush, wet and even cold dry roads. Winter tires feature tread designs made specifically for ice, snow and other severe winter conditions. They have specially formulated tread rubber that stays flexible at low temperatures for better vehicle control. The aggressive tread on a winter tire reduces snow build up. Most drivers find that winter tires provide a sense of confidence and control in challenging winter weather conditions.
“All-season tires are designed to help provide traction and grip in wet and snowy conditions. They are made to help provide stable handling and even tread wear in both wet and dry conditions. Although all-season tires offer traction in a variety of different weather conditions, winter tires surpass them when it comes to traction in snow and ice.”
Of course, the choice of tire comes down to you, your driving habits and your needs. Some people can make it through the winter with all-season tires. For others, snow tires are a necessity. How do you choose? Talk with your friendly neighborhood auto mechanic at Terry’s Car Care.
