For safe driving in the cold and rain, make sure your tires are in good condition.
At long last, 2020 is drawing to a close. But don’t expect a sunny start to the new year, at least according to weather forecasters, who are predicting the likelihood of rain on New Year’s Day and during the first weekend of 2021. As for the temperatures, if forecasters are right, they’ll be mild during the day but get progressively colder overnight during the coming week.
That kind of weather that’s on the edge between mild and wintry can leave drivers wondering what to do about their tires. Should they, like car owners who live in truly cold parts of the country, change over to winter tires or should they, like those in the sunny South, ignore the cold and continue using their all-season tires?
It’s clear, according to autonxt.net, that winter tires are best and safest on icy, snowy roads. They’re better at cornering and braking on slick surfaces. But what if you don’t have a prolonged winter?
“For a vehicle to be at its best in the worst winter conditions, it needs commensurate tires. In many parts of the country, drivers may be able to cope with all-season tires on the few days when conditions get ugly; but even in areas of moderate winter conditions, in most cases winter tires will be better on any day below 40 degrees,” autonxt.net says. “Most drivers own a vehicle for five to six years and will need to buy a new set of tires during that time. If drivers buy a specific set of tires for wintry conditions and use them four or five months of the year, the other tires will last longer and will not need to be replaced for several more years. Clearly, winter tires give vehicles a performance advantage in the most severe driving situations and help remove driving stress.”
But whether a driver who lives in an area with moderate winter conditions chooses to go with a set of winter tires or to stick with all season tires, the best move is to make sure the tires are well maintained, kept properly inflated, and rotated regularly.
