DO WINTER TIRES MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
In a word, yes! Tire Barn customers deal with a lot of cold weather and a lot of snow. Winter tires are engineered to deliver a better grip in temperatures below 45 degrees F, even on bare pavement, compared with all-season tires. And, of course they have specially designed treads for snow and mud. They significantly shorten the starting and stopping distances on ice and snow. Many of our customers in Indiana, Illinois and even Tennessee find that winter tires are well worth the investment, for the extra margin of safety and boost in driving confidence.
