Have The Right Tires On Your Car For Winter

Are you sure your car is really winter ready?  Sometimes a lot of people overlook their tires as something that needs serious attention during the change of seasons.  The rubber you have on the road is the difference between staying on the road and staying out of a ditch.

If you still have summer tires on your car, now is the time to get them off.  The rubber compound of the summer tire was not designed for temperatures of under 45 degrees.  Make sure to put on your set of snow tires, and if you don't have snow tires, PICK SOME UP SOON!!!

You may also think that having all season tires on your car means you're snow ready, however, most of the time all seasons are still compromised by the extreme cold of winter.  The tire compounds harden up at really frigid temperatures and can lead to a sudden loss of tractions because the tire is too hard to grip the road.  Snow tires are specifically designed for freezing and sub zero temperatures and feature tire compounds that are still malleable in the cold.

So do yourself a favor this season and buy yourself a set of winter tires.  Check out Tirerack.com for some great deals on Tires.  You can have the tires sent over to Nyack Auto Repair on Franklin St in Nyack to have them mounted on your car.

Enjoy the Holidays everyone!
