Does Your AWD Vehicle Need Winter Tires?

Joe Turner's Blog | Does Your AWD Vehicle Need Winter Tires?

No doubt about it, winter is coming quickly and you may already be experiencing its wrath if you live in the northern United States.  If you live anywhere in the snowy landscape of the U.S., the right winter tires mounted on your All Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicle is a smart combo. This pairing will help keep you from sliding all over town for the next several months.


AWD systems can add significant weight to your vehicle. The extra weight provides traction and control needed for driving in the snow. This weight also increases the braking distance required to make a complete stop. Although AWD vehicles are great to use on snowy days, with the addition of winter tires, these vehicles are better at stopping in winter’s most hazardous conditions.


In addition to that, AWD vehicles provide power to all four wheels using front, rear, and center differentials. Winter tires have deeper grooves to push and channel the snow and keep the tire gripped to the road in snowy weather. They're made of rubber compounds formulated to grip in conditions where your all-season tires just can't dig in.


It is very important that you keep you and your loved ones safe on the roads this winter. Make sure that if you need winter tires on your AWD vehicle that you add them this year. Let me know if I can help you in any way!
