When you need new winter tires, see the Wichita tire specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.
When it first turned cold, you thought about putting planned to put winter tires on your car, but when you took a look at your set, you realized you needed new winter tires. Rather than spend a lot of money on a set of winter tires, you decided you could get through the winter by driving carefully on your summer tires.
That’s what you thought until you slid through a red light while trying to stop. Now you’re in the market for a new set of winter tires. And you’re wondering if you can simply get a pair of budget-priced winter tires.
Buying budget winter tires would not be the best use of your tire money, according to jalopnik.com. Jalopnik cites a study by Tyre Reviews that compared the performance of budget winter tires with more expensive winter tires. The higher priced tires won.
“The more expensive tire held up better in the braking. This could very well mean avoiding a fender bender in real-world situations. That distance only increases as your car gets heavier,” jalopnik says.
Jalopnik adds, “For snow handling, the cheap tire caused the car to feel more vague and less balanced, two things you do not want when there’s very little grip and a lot of things around to potentially hit. …
“Tires are the only part of your car making contact with the road, so it’s definitely worth paying attention to which ones perform the best. It doesn’t matter if you have the most technologically advanced car on the planet or if you can out-drive Walter Röhrl. If your tires suck, you’re going to be in trouble.”
