Stay Safe While Driving in Winter

Now that winter’s here, you’re probably wondering if buying snow tires for your car is something you won’t regret. Many vehicle owners would agree that snow tires are the best choice when it comes to driving in deep, unplowed snow. This is especially true if you’re living in an area that’s usually blanketed in snow and ice during winter amid frigid temperatures. Winter tires can provide you with a safety edge that all-season tires can’t.


Difference Between Winter Tires and Snow Tires

If you’ve been using snow tires and winter tires interchangeably ever since you could remember, you should know that they’re two different things.

Winter tires are designed for cold weather and roads with light snow throughout the winter season. Since their tread comes with a unique composition that keeps the rubber soft in extremely cool temperatures, the tires can grip the road better, even on ice.

Snow tires offer the same benefits as winter tires. The only difference is that their treads and biting edges are far deeper. They have zigzag grooves, which give extra traction once the wheel begins spinning on the snow. You can also find metal studs in certain snow tires. These studs provide more traction in snowy conditions.


So, Are Snow Tires Worth Investing In?

Again, if you reside in a place where winter is often marked by heavy snowfall, the answer to the question above is a resounding yes. Not only will snow tires make driving on icy roads easier, but they will also enhance your safe by preventing your car from sliding off the road. They can also ensure you don’t get stuck on roads clogged with snow.

Your activities in winter can also be a factor when choosing to buy snow tires. For instance, if you frequently head to the mountains for winter activities, you need to highly consider purchasing these tires.

Be aware also that some states issue fines to motorists caught driving on summer tires in certain places during winter.

Snow tires can truly make a difference in your safety when you’re driving on slippery, snowy roads. Sure, they may be a pricey investment, but they’ll be worth every penny.
