Why Winter Tires Should Be Removed

                               

You may be wondering exactly why you even have to bother removing any tires when the seasons change. You might just think a tire is a tire. As long as it isn’t flat and it spins when you hit the gas, what difference does it make? Believe it or not, it does matter.


Winter tires are made of a softer rubber so that the tires can work to get a good grip when on top of ice and snow. It makes the tires flexible and able to be handled better in winter weather. However, when that softer rubber meets the hot pavement of a sunny spring day, or even hotter pavement on a summer day, it doesn’t do its job so well. In fact, soft rubber on hot pavement leads to more friction. This simply means it takes more power to get the car going. More power means more gas. More gas means more money, lots more money as the weather gets nicer.


Even though tires can’t technically tell what time of year it is, they perform differently under different conditions. Winter tires are simply made to do better in the winter. By removing them, you are helping to maintain control and also helping to get the most out of performance and gas mileage.
