Put Winter Tires on Before it Gets Cold
Don’t wait for the season’s first snowfall to change your tires. Cito Ramos, a service advisor with Midas Service Experts, says tires lose their effectiveness at seven degrees Celsius. Winter tires are made of a softer rubber compound, which allow them to maintain their flexibility at lower temperatures. He suggests swapping your tires in November, right as the weather starts to cool down. It’s also essential that you change all four tires when preparing for winter. Look for the graphic of a mountain with a snowflake to distinguish winter tires.
