Regular maintenance is the key to keeping your car in top shape, but seasonal shifts can change your routine in a big way. Learning when to put on winter tires is as easy as watching the local weather report in Montgomery. While some people install winter tires on a specific date every year, the best thing to do is to watch for the weather to drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit or 7 degrees Celsius. When the forecasts are consistently below those temperatures, you will reap the benefits of winter tires. We’ll help you create a cold-weather car care schedule, so you can avoid winter emergencies. Let’s take a look in our handy guide below.
If you regularly live in an area that drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit you should be using winter tires since they reduce tension and improve traction.
Regardless of your tire type, maintaining good air pressure is important year-round. But, what should tire pressure be in winter? Here are some things to keep in mind:
A common misconception is that winter tires are simply “snow tires”. Winter tires are designed to stay soft below 50 degrees to prevent the rubber from cracking. The purpose of winter tires is not just to provide better traction in snow, but in cold, dry, or wet conditions as well. So, even if you live in an area where it doesn’t snow. Winter tires are still a good investment.
Are All-Season tires good for snow? All-Season, or all-weather, tires are a little more tricky. Since rubber technology has not been perfected enough to create a high-performing tire in temperatures ranging from freezing to 100 degrees, all-season tires tend to be less consistent. You will either find all-weather tires that have similar tire temperature rating to summer tires or ones that are closer to winter tires – not both. Since winter tires are designed for colder weather specifically, they are a better choice for driving in the snow.
