Winter tires can effectively keep you safe while you're driving on a wintry road, but did you know that driving with winter tires all year long can actually be a bad idea? Designed strictly for the cold temperatures and winter weather, winter tires should be swapped out for summer or all-season tires. Here's why:
  • Winter tires are designed for temperatures that are below freezing. Hot temperatures could compromise their integrity.
  • You could end up with uneven tread wear if you're driving your winter tires all year. This could shorten the life expectancy of your tires.
  • Driving a certain set of tires outside of their recommended season could drastically lower your fuel efficiency ratings.
  • There is a specific tread pattern on your tires that allows you to handle ice and snow. Summer tires are made with a totally different pattern.
