Why Having Snow Tires Is Important

If you've ever wondered what makes winter tires so different from summer or all season tires, we want to provide you with some information surrounding the importance of having snow tires on your vehicle this winter.

  • Why Do I Need Snow Tires?: Even if your vehicle has all-wheel drive, equipping it with the proper snow tires is the only way to improve your traction, handling, and braking ability in inclement driving conditions. Here in Idaho, we deal with poor weather driving all the time, so it's important that your vehicle is properly outfitted to make driving safer for you and everyone else on the road.
  • How Are Snow Tires Different From All-Season Tires?: The difference mainly comes down to tread and maximizing traction in snowy, icy, and slushy driving conditions. Winter tires are engineered with high sipe density to create a biting edge and grip the winter roads. All-season tires are made to be versatile and capable to take on most weather conditions, but are not recommended for winter driving here in Idaho.
  • When Should You Get Snow Tires Put On?: It's a good idea to have your snow tires equipped before it gets into the winter months, when it's most likely to snow, to ensure that you aren't caught off guard by a surprise snow storm, although it's never too late to have them equipped here at our dealership.
