When to change from Summer tires to Winter tires

You know when the days start getting shorter and the warm summer air slowly slips away that Winter is coming. During this time of the year you are less likely to be thinking about car care and your tires. Sometimes thinking about Winter alone causes some anxiety. However, snow tires "winter tires" are an integral part of your saftey when you live in snowy, icy or frigid climates, and it's important to switch them over before it's too late. Without grip, most of your car's saftey features are less likely to be effective (e.g., anti-lock brakes, all wheel drive and traction control). Because weather is different everywhere and it seems to hit when you're not prepared, call us at Murdoch's Tire & Automotive in Port Colborne, ON to ensure you're prepared before it's too late. When the weather starts to worsen, that's the best time to consider doing the tire changeover and schedule an appointment to keep you moving through the seasons.

The importance of changing Winter Tires to Summer tires
The biggest problem you will face when leaving your snow tires on in the summer is the lack of tire life. This happens because of the compounds that make up snow tires. They will wear out very quickly due to the heat from the highway which causes the materials to start to breakdown, this then leads to a reduction in cornering and gripping capabilities. Call us if you have any questions about when you should change your tires or schedule an appointment for service.
