Having the right tires installed on your vehicle is a must for safe driving. While regular or all-season tires are adequate in milder climates, snow tires are highly recommended for winter driving. Here are 4 reasons why you should consider winter tires for your vehicle:
Drivers should also check their tire pressure once a month. As the temperature drops so too does tire pressure. For every 5°C dip in the thermometer your tire pressure decreases 1 pound per square inch which results in reduced handling and control of your vehicle.
Helpful Tip: Try to find steel rims to put your winter tires on. Just be sure the bolt pattern, shape and size match your vehicle. By having dedicated rims for your winter tires, you will avoid paying for mounting and balancing twice a year, reduce the potential for damage to your regular rims and it makes installation a much simpler task!
