Winter Tires

Benefits of Winter Tires

At Kingston Toyota, we strive to keep you safe on the road. Winter conditions often result in hazardous driving conditions, including snow, ice, and reduced visibility. By taking the necessary steps to prepare your vehicle for winter, you can better ensure your safety on the road and the safety of your passengers. One of the essential aspects of staying safe on roads is your choice of tires. Here’s how winter tires keep you safe in winter!

1.Enhanced Traction

Winter tires are engineered with a special tread pattern that’s designed to maintain grip on icy and snowy roads. The unique rubber used for winter tires allows them to handle sub-zero temperatures without losing traction or tire pressure.

2.Better Performance

With winter tires installed, you can be sure you’re getting optimal performance from your vehicle. With their enhanced traction, winter tires improve braking distances by up to 30% compared to all-season tires, thereby reducing the chance of collisions.

3.Resistance to Hydroplaning

The special grooves in winter tires allow them to stay to better handle wet and slippery roads. The chances of hydroplaning, which is when tires lose contact with the road due to water, are greatly reduced when winter tires are installed. The deep tread on these tires pushes water to the sides and reduces your chances of skidding on slippery roads.
