Last week, we ran posts about how to drive safely in snow, and how to properly winterize your car. In both of them, we mentioned that if you live in a place where you’re going to have to deal with snow, you should really consider switching over to a set of proper winter tires for the season.
And as you can tell from the title of this post, we obviously stand by that advice? That said, we just stumbled across the great video from our friends at Tire Rack, who put together a great video showing exactly how much of a difference having the proper rubber on your vehicle can make when driving in snowy, icy conditions.
Because while modern cars are packing a virtual arsenal of driver aids, it’s important to remember that the tires are the only part of your vehicle that’s actually designed to touch the road. So making sure they’re up to what you’ll ask of them is crucial to achieve maximum safety and performance. Check out the video below for a practical demonstration of just how much snow tires can improve your experience in a winter wonderland, and if you’re ready to upgrade your ride’s shoes, head to your local AutoNation dealer. The techs there will have everything you need to stay safe on the road this winter!
