Do I Need to Switch to Winter Tires? | Wichita Auto Care

If you live where the temperature regularly drops below 40F degrees, you should get winter tires. For tire advice, see the Wichita auto care pros at Tracy’s Automotive.

Here in Wichita, the autumn chill is already in the air. Many overnight temperatures are dropping into the 40s.

It’s time to think about your tires. Specifically, should you switch to winter tires (also called snow tires)?

That depends on the climate where you live.

“The most important thing you can do to get your car ready for a future snowstorm or just icy roads is to make sure it is riding on the right tires for the season,” says.

Autoblog adds, “While many drivers assume that regular all-season tires are just fine for year-round driving, that’s only true if you live in a temperate climate. If you live where it snows – or your area experiences routine sub-40 degree Fahrenheit temperatures – a set of dedicated winter tires will dramatically improve your safety during the coldest months. …

“Remember: they’re not only for snow. They work better anytime it’s cold. That’s why it’s better to think of them as winter tires.”

The next question is what’s the best winter tire for my car or truck? The answer to that depends. It depends not only on what model or size vehicle you have but also the kind of driving you do – do you stay in the city or go off road, for example?
