DO WINTER TIRES MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
In a word, yes! Many Tread Quarters customers deal with snowy, icy driving conditions. Winter tires are engineered to deliver a better grip in temperatures below 45 degrees F, even on bare pavement, compared with all-season tires. And, of course they have specially designed treads for snow and mud. They significantly shorten the starting and stopping distances on ice and snow. Customers in Virginia, Maryland, and parts of the Carolinas find that winter tires are well worth the investment, for the extra margin of safety and boost in driving confidence.
