Find Quality Tires in Norwood
Your tires are one of the most important aspects of your vehicle. Not only are they part that help you travel to your destination, they also are incredibly important when it comes to your safety.
Knowing the difference between the types of tires, and which ones may be best for you, is incredibly important. That is why the tire center at Ferrari of New England is here to help.
Types of Tires and Their Uses
There are a number of tire options for your vehicle. Using them could depend weather and terrain.
- All Season: All-season tires are built to withstand a variety of road conditions, including dry, wet, and sometimes light snow. They offer versatile performance and are designed to offer benefits from both summer and winter tires. However, despite what their name suggests, these tires are not good in all seasons - especially winter, when heavy snow begins to accrue on the road.
- Summer: These tires have a soft, gripping tread compound which can provide excellent traction on damp roads. However, these tires are not good in snow because, in subfreezing temperatures, that gripping compound will harden.
- Winter:Winter tires are designed for colder weather with deeper snow. They are built to provide traction in snow, ice, and slush. However, it is not recommended that you keep your winter tires on after winter has ended.
Why Is This Important?
It is important to know which tires your vehicle needs to fully maximize your car's safety features and stability. For instance, all-season and summer tires will not work in weather below 45 degrees. Winter tires are not recommended beyond winter months.
