Winter tires vs. summer tires: What should I use?
In the last cold snap did you skid on the ice or snow or find yourself unable to stop? Losing control of your car can be incredibly scary and very dangerous.
You can improve your driving performance and safety by switching to winter tires this season.
Remember, at cool temperatures, summer tires are less effective on all types of road surfaces. Winter tires are made of a special rubber compound suited to these low temperatures and, unlike summer tires, they do not harden in the cold, which increases their handling and grip. Winter tires can shorten braking distances by up to 50 per cent. These tires are not just for driving in the snow and ice - they're designed for conditions such as damp and wet roads.
Contrary to popular belief, winter tires do not wear more quickly than summer tires so make sure you fit them early to enjoy maximum benefits. It is also recommended that you fit four winter tires for optimum safety.
