Are Snow Tires Right For Your Car?

Many believe they don’t need winter tires because they have front-wheel-drive and anti-skid systems, and they’re right; often, you don’t need snow tires – but if you really want to keep you and yours safe, there are two things you should know. Manufacturers have been putting wider, low-profile tires on cars for styling purposes, both of which make a tire worse in the snow. Plus, winter tires have undergone several improvements in recent years, including the fact that they are now quieter on dry roads. Even if you decide winter tires aren’t the right fit for you, make sure to check your tread before the bad weather hits, because bald tires will send you spinning into a ditch in the snow.
