The Importance of Winter Tires

We want all of our customers to be safe this winter. One of the best ways to make your vehicle safer during the winter time is to have a set of winter tires installed on your vehicle.

Winter tires come in several different forms like studded and studless. Studded winter tires have small metal studs protruding from the tire to enhance grip on icy surfaces. The downside of this is that studded tires damage the pavement if there is no ice covering it. They also make your car quite noisy as well. Studless winter tires are the most common kind of winter tire and are preferred in most situations. Advances in rubber compounds have allowed studless winter tires to better grip the snow even in cold temperatures.

We can have bad winters. Come down to The Car Store and we will have our service department swap a set onto your vehicle.
