Great tire debate about winter tires

The great tire debate about winter tires or all weather tires. May be all season tires? How should you choose? They all black and round what’s the difference?

I get this questions quiet often from my clients. What do you think of the Nokian all weather tires? Most people would like to avoid to install winter tires if they could. The Nokian could do the job on my BMW, Mercedes and or Porsche? Theoretically it could (Than it begs the question why did you invest in a high tech high performance car?) practically it will not  suffice, your car’s manufacturer of the above brands spend hundreds of millions of dollars (Euros) to make your car handle behave like intended a performance oriented finely honed machine.

Winter Traction: Interlocking and adaptive 3D sipes work in tandem to enhance stability and grip on icy surfaces.

Wet Traction: Dual-action shoulder grooves are straight at the bottom to evacuate water.

Resistance to Wear: A high-density reinforced compound allows for a more stable tread block, providing longer more even wear.

What could be the difference between all weather and winter tires?

The easy way to make a comparison, like your seasonal shoes, you definitely don’t want to wonder outside in flip flops in the snow and ice. How about running shoes? They would be your all weather tire equivalent so this is why we wear winter boots to keep you on your feet securely in any inclement weather.

Your winter tires, like your winter boots are purpose built for the cold slippery road and severe conditions.

We hope this helps to make your tire decision somewhat easier in the coming winter.

Drive safely, think before you drive and have a safe and secure driving winter season from all of us at Techmax, your tire experts.

Winter Tires

The seasonal adjustment to our frequently changing weather and climate changes, in other words, the fast approaching winter in your daily motoring and driving habits, may need to be adjusted soon.

The frequent questions we get; When should I switch to my winter tires  from my summers? There is any date you suggest please?

The magic number and date is depend on the temperature.  When the temperature steadily stays bellow + 7 Celsius, which is regarded by the tire manufacturers as the temperature threshold of your summer or all season tires, that is the point where your ordinary tires no longer pliable and will not adhere to the road which will get even worst by adding moisture to the same surface.

Winter tires as the name says are purpose built for the worst conditions what nature can throw at them so they are made from a softer, more pliable compound and have deeper grooves with micro sipes to  evacuate water, sleet and snow between your tires and the road.

Just as seasonal clothing and shoes in particular are strikingly different and are built for the weather, winter boots and flip flops do not mix well in vastly different weather.

Being prepared is half of the battle, between just being there, and or getting there with confidence and staying in motion when you want to, and or stopping when you need to.

We provide proven winter tires from economy to the best brands like Yokohama, Continental, Pirelli and more.

We wish you a safe and happy motoring through the winter seasons.

Thank you for reading and participating in keeping our roads safer.
