How Winter Tires Differ From Summer Tires

When the roads are dry, summer tires may be ideal for getting the best traction and fuel efficiency. However, when the roads get wet, snowy or icy in Ramsey, you may want to switch to winter tires. This can also be a good decision if you live in an area that experiences frequent cold spells.

Winter tires have extra grooves that allow them to bite into icy road surfaces, and this will usually allow for greater traction when driving at speeds that are reasonable for road conditions. A modified tread pattern is designed to help push away slush, snow and other water that may pool on a road surface.

At MINI of Ramsey, we want to make sure that you make the right choice when buying tires for your car. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have or to have winter tires professionally installed.
