Elk River Tire & Auto

Elk River, MN 55330

Years ago when people made their yearly tire service change from regular tires to snow treads or chains, their cars would not have performed well at all on the dry roads after winter and would have worn out quickly. Snow treads were useless on dry and wet roads, proving to provide little grip to the pavement, plus stops took longer. Then manufacturers started to produce an all-season brand.

These days consumers can still opt for the top-of-the-line winter treads. They outperform any other tread on the road. Many vehicle owners still purchase winter treads if they live in areas that have large amounts of snow, icy, and wet roads. The very worse that can happen when driving on icy or wet roads is a bit of a squeal when making a sudden stop. Consumers find that the all-season tires and the winter treads now manufactured perform in much the same way.

These days, snow tires for the winter months perform well on all types of roads. They outperform other tires during heavy snow, ice, and wet road conditions, and temperatures to below 40 degrees. However, as the temperature rises and the roads become dry and are no longer snow covered, the tread is likely to wear out more quickly than other types of tires.

Technology has come a long way over the last 30 years, but not enough to keep using winter treads when the temperatures warm up over 40 consistently and summer is around the corner.

A Rule of thumb: Apply new tires for winter at the end of October or November and remove them around the end of April. As the tread wears out, they need to be replaced. Spend a few dollars and invest in a tread measurement guide and measure the tread when it comes time to change to an all-season tread.
