Change happens everywhere during spring. The skies turn from gray to blue. People start spending more time outdoors. Best of all, people just seem a lot happier when winter ends.
This change in season also means that changes are in store for your Southaven vehicle, especially if you used winter tires, also called snow tires, during the past few months. Make sure you know which tires you are using at all times to get optimal value and performance.
What Are Snow Tires?
Few people enjoy driving in the snow. It's stressful, challenging, and, sometimes dangerous. Having snow tires can make these challenges easier to overcome. These tires have distinct tread patterns and softer rubber, which leads to better traction on snowy roads. This makes stopping and steering much easier, along with reducing the possibility of your car's getting stuck.
Swapping Your Winter Tires
Snow tires don't offer the same benefits in warmer temperatures. In fact, you will likely save money over time by matching your tires to the appropriate weather conditions.
Remember the flexible rubber we mentioned in the section above? It tends to wear down quickly in warmer temperatures. This means you'll be buying new tires sooner if you don't switch out your snow tires.
