DO WINTER TIRES MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
In a word, yes! Winter tires are engineered to deliver a better grip in temperatures below 45 degrees F, even on bare pavement, compared with all-season tires. And, of course they have specially designed treads for snow and mud. They significantly shorten the starting and stopping distances on ice and snow. Many of our customers in New England, the mid-Atlantic, and Midwest find that winter tires are well worth the investment, for the extra margin of safety and boost in driving confidence. Winter tires also allow you to purchase a set of summer or touring tires designed for enhanced warm weather performance.
