The Ultimate Winter Tire Guide

Most people don’t put a lot of thought into their tires. The main issue with this is that your tires are one of the most used components of your vehicle. We have found the ultimate tire guide for you to read, but for those who don’t have time to read the whole 13-page article we have summed up some of the main points for you:

  • The rubber compound your tires are made of has a lot to do with how the tire behaves in a given temperature range
  • Each type of tire is designed for specific temperatures, winter/snow tires are designed for low temperatures
  • The tread design plays a large role in the tire’s grip and flexibility
  • Snow tires typically have deeper treads which allows for easy slush evacuation and superior traction in the snow
  • If you are going to be driving in the snow it is best to have a set specifically for winter
  • It is best to only use your winter tires when it is actually cold out as the heat can reduce the lifespan of your winter tires
  • To get the most lifetime out of your spare tires it is important to store them properly
  • Store tires out of direct sunlight
