It’s that time of year again – time you should definitely install winter tires on your car. Upgrading for cold months isn’t tire companies wanting to squeeze an extra buck out of you — winter tires provide genuine performance and give the grip you desperately need when temperatures drop and the weather turns for the worst. However, one of the biggest excuses to not shell out for a whole sperate set of tires cost. That excuse is out the window this week because Goodyear Tires are up to $300 off through November 27.
Ask any pro driver, and they’ll tell you a car is only as good as its tires. It’s the only part of the vehicle that touches the ground (or should), so you want the connection to be the best you can get. A winter tire’s softer rubber and intricate tread patterns are designed to pump water out and away while getting a better direct grip on the road surface. Summer and all-season compounds don’t siphon away nearly as much water and slush, not to mention their harder rubber compounds stay rock solid in low temperatures making it more like driving on marble blocks than tires.
With Goodyear offering up to $100 in rebates and $200 back if you order tires online, there’s no reason not to equip your car for the months ahead properly. The side-by-side comparisons of all-season and summer tires versus winter tires on cold, wet and icy conditions should be enough to convince you to make the switch. Consider the price of winter tires next to time spent struggling to get in and out of parking spaces or your driveway and the money you’ll save by not sliding into that curb buried in snow or the trees lining the backroads.
