How to decide on the right winter tire

We have already experienced a touch of winter here in Lake Orion, MI and you know by now how important the right tires are to handle the winter freeze. While most cars come standard with all-season tires, many may need snow or winter tires for ultimate traction.

In snow or ice conditions, winter tires work like a snow boot gripping the road and giving better control over your vehicle. You can also have the added peace of mind when you add studs to your winter tires. Studs work best on clear ice in freezing temperatures. Studs dig into the snow or ice and can improve acceleration and braking. Whether your car is front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, a winter tire will give better traction than an all-season tire.

Have your tires checked for winter readiness and if they are marked with a mountain and snowflake symbol on the sidewall, your tire is designed specifically to use in severe cold or heavy snow. If you have questions about your tires, our service department at Milosch's Palace Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can help you find what works best for you. Give us a call and make an appointment today.
