Winter is somewhat inevitable. As much as we try to rail against it, the snow and cold are impossible to avoid. We all have to deal with it at some point, so we should all try to be prepared for it. You and your car could use some preparation.

One of the best things you can do for your car in winter is to take the time to prepare it before winter hits. You can buy plenty of winter hazard kits that can help you out in a pinch, but there are things to do beforehand. If you’re really trying to get your car ready for winter, then you should look into buying a set of winter tires.

When to Buy Winter Tires

It’s always a good idea to get a set of winter tires before the snow hits. These tires are going to give your car a better grip and handle on the road. Winter tires are made for the cold weather whereas the makeup of all-season or summer tires isn’t as ready for the cold. The tread design on winter tires also helps move snow out of the way to keep you on track.

So, when should you make the switch to winter tires? As winter creeps up, it is a good time to think about getting winter tires. When the winter temperature starts dipping below freezing on a regular basis, it is time to make the switch if you are going to. Vice versa, when the temperature gets back up to above freezing on a regular basis you can make the switch back to all-season tires.
