Winter is approaching quick, despite everyone wanting to hear otherwise. With winter comes dangerous road conditions, which can be combated with safe tires. According to Joel Hotham of Kal Tire, the safest option in any weather below 7 degrees is winter tires.
Hotham says that winter tires are the safest because they “insure you are safe on the roads and are able to stop in a correct and proper distance .[…] They expel water from under your car which reduces hydroplaning.”
According to Hotham, winter tires are the best option because of the way in which the rubber sticks to the roads. The soft compound expands in the cold, creating the best grip to keep drivers on the road.
Hotham recommends that car owners get the change over done professionally, as shops have the correct tools to do it correctly and efficiently. This allows for the safest conditions possible.
