Tracy’s Automotive will help you choose the best winter tires for your car and your driving style.
You happened to glance at your tires when you got in your car on the way to the Renaissance and Scottish Festival this morning. What you saw was worn tread and some cracking along the sidewalls. It’s definitely time for new tires.
Although you initially had a sinking reaction, the news isn’t all bad. Autumn is the best time of year to get your car’s tires ready for the cold, ice and snow of winter.
“No matter where you live, fall is a good time to check your tires, especially if you’ll soon be facing rain, snow, and ice,” consumerreports.org says. “If your tires are worn, consider replacing them with new ones before foul weather strikes. You want to be ready for challenging weather. And inventory is plentiful and you may beat the rush from last-minute buyers.”
Your big decision, of course, is whether to buy all-season tires or winter tires made specifically for the harsh winter weather in the coldest climates.
“All-season tires might work well if you live in an area where snow and icy conditions are infrequent or if you can wait to drive until the roads have been cleared,” consumerreports.org says. “Dedicated winter/snow tires are for places where snowy conditions are common. As our tests show, they provide an added margin of grip to stop, start, and corner far better than typical all-season tires on snow.
“They’re the right choice if you must drive in a snowstorm or just want peace of mind. Their sure-footed grip will benefit cars with all-wheel, rear-wheel, and front-wheel drive. But their treads wear quickly, and the tires should be used only in the wintry months.”
