How to Stay Safe When Driving at Altitude

 

Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3

In the winter months, nothing provides better grip and traction on slick roads than a set of dedicated winter tires. However, all season and all weather tires are much better choices when temperatures consistently climb above 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

are winter tires safe in warmer months?

 

Up-close tire shot

When it comes to their tires, drivers care deeply about durability. When they’re shopping for all season tires, winter tires or winter rated four-season all weather tires, most consumers would tell you they want their tires to last as long as is safely possible.

all-season versus winter tire durability

 

Take it from Nokian Tyres, the inventor of the winter tire: There is nothing safer on wintry roads than a set of dedicated winter tires. But the same qualities that make them effective on snow and ice cause them to be potentially unsafe in consistently warm temperatures.

When should I change over to my all-season tires?

 

All Weather Tire WSI System

Several decades ago, some executives in the tire industry made a marketing decision that has challenged drivers ever since: the naming of the all season tire. All season tires are great for all seasons -- if you live on the southern end of North America.

What's the difference between all season and all weather tires?

 

It’s vital to drive the right tire size. Driving tires with the wrong dimensions could cause your vehicle to underperform, handle poorly or experience uneven tire wear that can make driving dangerous.

What tire size should I use?

 

Even the best set of high quality tires is much less effective if the tires are not regularly rotated. It is in the interest of safety and fuel efficiency to rotate your tires every 3,000 to 6,000 miles (5,000 to 10,000 kilometers), or at the first sign of irregular wear…

How often should I rotate my tires?

 

 

Safety is the most important aspect of a tire’s performance. But that doesn’t just mean good braking and handling; it also includes the ability to resist blowouts and flats caused by road hazards.

What are the best tires to avoid blowouts?

 

All Season Driving

All season tires are not meant for winter roads in many parts of North America. Their rubber compounds and tread patterns are built for high performance and durability on spring and summer roads, but what about winter?

Are all-season tires safe in winter?

Driving Safety Indicator

When your tires’ tread depth approaches its minimum safe driving level, it’s important to buy a new set of tires. But how do you know when that moment has arrived?

How do I know when it's time for new tires?
