WHY YOU DON’T LEAVE YOUR WINTER TIRES ON ALL YEAR

July 15th, 2019 by

As a responsible car owner, you wouldn’t use your winter tires during any other season. However, at Patrick MINI, we know how tempting it can be to skip the money and time it takes to buy and mount multiple sets of tires each year.

It is important to know why it’s not a good idea to use winter tires in the spring, summer, or fall. The primary reason why this isn’t worth doing is that the tires are made from materials that grip better on ice and snow. When the roads are dry and warm, those compounds are not able to grip the road and provide the handling that you need.

Winter tires that have studs could damage the road that you are driving on, which could get you in trouble with Schaumburg, IL authorities. Finally, winter tires last longer when only used during periods of cold weather.
