The tire specialists at Tracy’s Automotive can help you choose the best tire to be safe on the roads in winter weather.
Christmas was not the only notable date on last week’s calendar. It was also the first official day of winter and Wichita’s weather has been behaving accordingly with ice, snow and low temperatures. You know what that does to the streets and roads – slippery and dangerous. Especially if you don’t have the right tire. Or, if your tires are in bad shape.
“You may think that your all-season tires have you covered, but contrary to their name, all-season tires are far from great in the winter conditions,” according to Car and Driver. “Winter tires, on the other hand, use specialized rubber compounds and tread designs that are engineered to maximize traction in freezing temperatures and on icy surfaces.”
Car and Driver notes that winter tires have other advantages over all-season tires: “Winter-tire treads have specifically engineered grooves, channels, and biting edges designed to dig into snow and push water away from the tire’s contact patch.”
Car and Driver recommends you buy a set of winter tires if you’re facing a winter-long bout of cold weather – especially if the cold is accompanied by snow and ice.
If you don’t have a regular Wichita tire shop you can trust, it’s time to meet the Wichita tire technicians at Tracy’s Automotive. Tracy’s tire pros can help you choose the right tire for you and your vehicle and driving style as well as for the weather.
