Your Best Weapon Against Winter

The colder season is only a few months away, which is just enough time to make those last alterations to your vehicle before it becomes too late. Whether you depend on your car, truck, or SUV to get you to school, work, or just the grocery store, putting in the extra effort of winterizing your vehicle could help prevent a serious accident. Careless drivers believe that by reducing their speed and attempting to maintain greater control of their car that they will not need to use winter tires, but these opinions are risky and could lead to an accident. Instead of trying to work around obtaining the extra safety that winter tires provide, why not invest in an affordable set and rest easy while you drive?

No matter of advancements or improved features in your new vehicle can outclass the protection a simple set of winter tires offers. Traction control, for example, will inhibit you from accidentally overpowering your tired, but it doesn’t actually improve the traction between your car and the road. ABS brakes suffer from the same problem – they stop your tires from becoming locked, but do nothing for the level of resistance between you and the asphalt. Just as you wouldn’t choose to drive through a rain storm without windshield wipers, you should avoid driving through snow without the proper equipment.

The biggest complaint about winter tires is the upfront investment, but shoppers needn’t worry about emptying their wallets. Many seasonal tires, such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta are affordable and offer quality control in icy weather. With its exceptional performance and safety guarantee, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 was recently rated one of the best by Consumer’s Report. Isn’t it time that you started treating your vehicle with the same care that you would give those that ride inside of it?
Are you and your car ready for the winter season? What winter tires do you feel are the best in either performance or value?
