Spring is just around the corner and it’s time for you to start thinking about changing your winter tires, Colorado! Winter tires are made to specifically handle the cold weather conditions but are not recommended during the warmer seasons.
You wouldn’t wear snow boots to the beach so why would you expect your car to keep its winter tires on during a hot Colorado summer. They have a distinct tread pattern that is intended to help better equip your car so it can grip the road in snow and ice, to keep you safe. They are also made out of a softer rubber material that is great for conforming to the shape of the road in cold weather but not so great to have in warmer temperatures.
Summer tires, or sometimes known as “three season” tires are high performance. They have a different compound make up than snow tires. Summer tires are intended for hot and dry conditions. They have a different tread pattern than winter tires to allow the driver to have better control over the road.
By switching your tires form summer to winter you can extend their life expectancy. By having tires that are designed for the specific season you are helping make the road a safer place, by lowering the risk of causing an accident due to sliding or losing control of the road.
