Snow tires vs. All-season tires

Snow tires are specifically designed to drive on slippery roads without losing traction. The rubber used to make snow tires differs from that of other tires in that it is able to stay softer in cold temperatures. This is the secret to being able to provide better traction. However, having more tread in contact with the ground can lead to a slight drop in fuel economy.

On the other hand, all-season tires can be a great middle ground. These tires offer strong fuel economy scores in most conditions and they don’t need to be changed out and stored each season. However, driving on all-season tires will require a bit more care when the snow starts to accumulate.

If your vehicle is all over the road because of poor wheel alignment, it really won’t matter what kind of tires you are using. Colonial Toyota will be able to tell you if your wheels are out of whack. Even the best winter drivers slip and slide around. Having wheels that aren’t properly aligned will make a vehicle act in an unpredictable manner. This will have pretty obvious safety implications this winter. Don’t wait until winter officially arrives before you get your car, truck or crossover SUV into us for a look.
