Don't Get Left Out In The Cold...Practice Tire Safety
Updated: September 24, 2016 - 3:32 am

(NAPSI)—Rough roads aren’t the only thing to worry about when the temperature drops. Tires also get cold and need extra grip to perform at their best. That’s something your all-season tires might not be ready for. In fact, in temperatures of 45° F or below, the rubber in all-season tires gradually hardens, leading to decreased road traction and less grip. That can cause difficulty with braking and turning. Winter tire safety experts urge drivers to consider the weather; if you often drive when it’s below 45° F—snow or no snow—it’s time for a set of winter tires to keep you and your family safe on the roads this year.
