Do I Really Need Winter Tires?

707 × 450

The short answer is: Yes. If you live in an area that is frequently visited by snow, ice, and freezing temperatures, like Hagerstown, MD, Waynesboro PA, Chambersburg PA, Frederick MD, Martinsburg WV, or Winchester VA, then you should have your tires changed over to winter when the season starts. Winter tires are designed specifically to combat these winter struggles and without them driving in inclement weather could result in a dangerous situation.

What If I Have All-Seasons?

All-season tires are great and they are a lot better than summer tires on snowy roads, but they aren't as effective as winters. It's like wearing sneakers for every season. You probably wouldn't want to wear them when there's a foot of snow on the ground or instead of flip-flops in the summer.

Why Are Winter Tires Better?

Winter tires are made for snow and ice. They are made of softer rubber that stay more flexible than the harder rubber on summer or all-seasons, especially in the below freezing weather, and contain deeper treads that provide a much better traction on the snowy and icy roads.
