Why You Should Swap Your Winter Tires

Spring is known for being a time of change. The skies begin to brighten. Instead of shoveling snow, we plant flowers. And best of all, people just seem a bit happier when winter ends.

This change in season also means that changes are in store for your College Station 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.

The Basics of Snow Tires

Few people like driving in the snow. It's nerve-wracking, difficult, and, sometimes dangerous. Owning snow tires can make these challenges easier to manager. Snow tires have unique tread patterns and softer rubber, which leads to improved traction in snowy conditions.

Why You Should Replace Winter Tires in Summer

Winter tires don't have the same benefits in warmer temperatures. Ensuring that your tires correspond to the weather may actually save you more money than driving on snow tires all year.

The rubber used in winter tires will often wear down more quickly if used in warmer temperatures. So if you decide to leave your winter tires on your vehicle after winter ends, you'll end up buying new tires much sooner.
