Cold weather can wreak havoc on any type of automobile that is not properly cared for and maintained. While the automobile owner goes to great measures to ensure that their vehicle runs optimally, they may often overlook their tires. This is a very important aspect of winter automobile maintenance that can have a huge impact on safety.

Cold Temperatures and Tires

Colder temperatures means decreased pressure. This can directly impact driving in a number of ways. First and foremost, it can lead to increased risks of slipping and sliding on wet roads, which can be an accident waiting to happen. Secondly, driving without the recommended pressure will cause uneven wear and tear, damaging the tire itself. This type of damage can easily go unnoticed until a more serious problem arises, such as a blowout, for example. Last, but not least, decreased fuel economy can be a direct result of under-inflation.

New Tires May Be the Solution

Purchasing new tires annually and having them regularly rotated does not necessarily ensure that the automobile is ready for the winter season. Even if the product is designed for all weather use, this does not mean new tires are not necessary for winter months. Purchasing a new set specifically for the winter may be the most practical thing the consumer can do. This may be especially so for those that live in a climate that sees significant or above average rain or snowfall in the winter. The quality and tread of these tires can help increase safety on slippery roads.

Need new tires to finish out the winter safely? Contact our ASE Certified Technicians at Clausen Automotive, The Hybrid Shop, for more information about snow tires and to schedule an appointment. Since 1975, our family-owned auto shop has proudly served vehicle owners in Madison, WI, and the surrounding communities.

Be sure your tires are right for your driving conditions. You may need to consider purchasing new tires to finish out the winter safely.
