Comments Off on Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires: What Do I Need?
There’s a lot to take care of on your vehicle before the winter season hits. Is your battery in good shape? Have you checked the amount of window-washing fluid and the condition of your wipers? Are your brakes working properly?
Perhaps the most important vehicle components to inspect before winter are your tires. They’ll influence your vehicle’s accelerating, braking, and traction ability. Should you shell out extra cash for a set of winter tires or will your all-season tires work?
Here are important comparisons between winter tires and all-season tires that you need to know before deciding what type is best for your vehicle.
