Are Winter Tires Really Necessary? | Wichita Auto Care

When you need new winter tires or need your winter tires installed, maintained, or repaired, see the Wichita auto care pros at Tracy’s Automotive.

It’s a great day for the Pumpkin Run – cool but not too cold and sunny. You’ve gone every year and you’re sure you’ll have a good time again this year. It’s one of the great fall events in Wichita as far as you’re concerned.

But a fall event, of course, just precedes winter events and winter holidays. And colder weather. And every year you wonder, do I really need to go to all the trouble and expense to put winter tires on my car?

Yes, you probably do, if you plan to drive during cold or snowy weather. As U.S. News and World Report says, “A sure way to get yourself into trouble is to head into winter weather with a vehicle that is not equipped for slippery conditions. That starts with proper vehicle maintenance and deciding whether to install a set of snow tires on your car, truck, or SUV.

“Snow tires – or more correctly, ‘winter tires’ – have special rubber compounds and tread designs that allow them to maintain grip under weather conditions in which standard tires don’t perform well. If you live in an area with snow, ice, or frigid temperatures, winter tires can give you a safety edge that all-season tires won’t.

Of course, the final decision depends on you, your car, your driving habits. If you’re not sure what the best thing to do is, talk with a trusted Wichita auto care technician about your situation so you can make an informed decision.
