Mountain States Toyota is giving you all the facts for you to know your tires!

What's The Difference Between Snow Tires And All Weather Tires

Winter tires should really be called cold-weather tires! They do best in the cold, harsh winter months on every road condition. Their unique tread design adapts to the conditions allowing better grip and handling. They are made of a compound of flexible rubber.

These tires contain silica, helping them to remain flexible in cold weather. The treads on winter tires are substantially deeper and made too dig more deeply into compacted snow. There are also slits in the tires, which are called Sipes. They expand and flex when on the ground, preventing sliding while adding control and shorten stopping distance.

All-weather tires differ from winter tires in that they can be left on the car all year round. All-weather tires are perfect for area city driving and in milder winter weather, because they provide the traction you need for weekend adventures, as well as the grip on wet and slushy urban roads.

How Often Should I Rotate Or Change My Tires?

To maintain proper wear and tear on your tires it is recommended that you rotate your tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. To maintain equal tire wear, some experts say a rotation every oil change would be good!

A good judge of whether or not it is time to change your tires is the penny test. Just place a penny head first into several tread grooves across the tire. If you see the top of Lincoln's head, your treads are shallow and worn. If so, your tires need to be replaced. If part of Lincoln's head is covered by the tread, you have more than 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining!

Your Tires Need Maintenance Too!

Just like every other part of your vehicle, your tires need regular maintenance as well.

Keeping them filled to proper inflation, doing the penny test, and always checking for sidewall or other damage is crucial. These small steps can help better gas mileage and save on costly repairs and possible breakdowns.
