Why Buy Winter Tires?
At temperatures below 7oC, standard tires progressively lose flexibility, leading to a decrease in traction, handling and vehicle control at lower temperatures. However, the rubber of a winter tire remains supple through temperature decreases and has more sipes – the small cuts in the tread block – which cut through surface water and increase handling control and safety on the road during fall and winter. In fact, the braking distance of a winter tire compared to a standard tire, depending on speed and road conditions, can be up to two vehicle lengths shorter.
