Winter Safety Package
DID YOU KNOW? Winter tires are designed to help improve traction and control at temperatures below 7C. Tires are made form various rubber compounds, which respond differently depending on temperature - that's why the advantages of winter tires begin even before the temperature hits the freezing mark.
As the temperature falls, the rubber in summer and all-season tires begins to lose the flexibility to grip the road, which can result in reduced braking, acceleration and handling.
Winter tires do the opposite - as the temperature drops below 7C, the softer rubber compounds in winter tires help grip road surfaces, thus increasing traction and control and your chances of having a stress-free drive.
Watch for falling temperatures, not just falling snow!
