Welcome to fall again.
As always and somewhat predictably, as this year again we have the fall in full swing, meaning the temperatures drop. With it naturally road temperatures and tire temperatures drop, together reducing the traction available for braking or turning.
When is the time right to install winter tires?
The magic number is 7 degrees of Celsius. The so called “all season” and all performance tires will become brittle as their compound will partially become nearly hard as solid plastic.
Tire friction requires warm road surface or pliable tire surface to generate any meaningful friction to slow down a moving vehicle at all times. Since the road temperature is given and cannot be influenced by the driver than we got no choice but choose the softest tire for the job, which are the winter tires.
Winter tires formulated to stay soft and pliable in extreme cold temperatures.
What we have learned is, winter tires are not only meant for snow or ice but for cold weather driving, which what they are really engineered for ultimately.
Maximum traction requires the best weather specific rubber to be put to the road for ultimate safety and optimal vehicle performance .
