Steamboat Springs, Colorado is known for its winter fun, including skiing, snowboarding, resorts, and more. While all of these great activities could not be possible without fresh, powdery snow, this kind of weather and freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on car tires.
In order to prevent driving accidents associated with snow and icy roads, drivers are encouraged to install winter tires on their vehicles. The Parts Department at Steamboat Motors has tons of snow tires to choose from, all of which will aid in driving in winter conditions.
Snow tires are designed specifically for driving in the snow. Firstly, they are made from a different, softer kind of rubber than all-season tires. As a result, they are less likely to harden in freezing temperatures and the tread are flexible enough to resist snow build-up.
In addition, the tread on snow tires is meant to perform better while driving on snow and ice. Unlike other tires, snow tires can dig into the snow and grip the driving surface much more effectively. This prevents the car from slipping, spinning out, or fish-tailing.
All of the functions of snow tires work to improve other safety components of the car as well. For example, all-wheel drive and anti-lock brakes would not work if the car was not efficiently gripping the road. Stability control and traction control would be greatly affected as well. Snow tires ensure that all safety features of the car are in order and working together properly.
The Parts Department at Steamboat Motors encourages customers to stop by the dealership to have snow tires installed. Remember also that snow tires should be installed on all four wheels, not just on the front or the back.
