One of the best investments you can make for year-around safety is in a great set of tires. Tires are what not only make you move forward, but they also help you stop when you most need to. They can also help improve your fuel efficiency and get the best performance out of your car. When they are good tires in good condition, they hug the ground beneath their tread and keep you right where you should be going around that tight turn. Just don’t speed into it and you’ll be just fine!
We live in a part of the world that experiences extreme weather conditions. We don’t have to tell you that, because you already know. If you already know this, then you also know that having really good tires is critical, especially when the weather conditions take a turn toward freezing.
Winter tires aren’t like regular tires. They are geared toward being able to properly function in harsh winter conditions with temperatures below 45 degrees. Winter tires come in all shapes and sizes to meet the needs of your specific vehicle. Good ones will work the get rid of the snow and slush buildup. There are studded tires that are engineered to maintain traction on icy driving surfaces. They tend to be noisy and detract from the overall comfort of your ride, but safety should always come first. It’s also important to know that Missouri State law prohibits the use of studded tires from April 1 through October.
There are also non-studded winter and all-weather tires too. These are good too, but only if you don’t live in an area that experiences heavy ice and snow. There are many factors that go into deciding on the right tire for your needs. Make sure to do your research, but know that the team at Complete Automotive is here to help.
