James: Hi, and welcome to Under the Hood. I’m James with S&S Tire in Brannon Crossing, and today, we want to discuss whether winter tires are right for you.
With winter weather that’s already arrived, I get asked all the time, “Do I need snow tires?” And I’ll be honest with you, I don’t carry very many of them because we typically don’t need them here in Kentucky. Our temperature average is above 45 degrees, and even when it does snow, it only lasts for a day or two, or even when we get a little wet weather with maybe some ice, it’s not here to stay. So I would recommend an all season tire. This way, you get the best of both worlds, even in dry, wet, and snow, plus the longevity of an all season tire.
All season tires are just that. They perform best in all weather. Rain, dry, and snow. And here in Kentucky, you know we have them all, but they don’t last very long in the winter time. So why need two sets of tires? Snow tires won’t perform well on dry pavement, and they won’t last long compared to an all season tire. Now, if we were up north, maybe Canada or Alaska, I would suggest a snow tire where it sticks around and we could really use them. But who needs two sets of tires here in Kentucky, when one gets the job done?
All things being said, if you want the best tire for your vehicle, come see us at S&S Tire. I’m James, and that’s your tip from Under the Hood.
