Now that cold weather is here, it's time to think about putting winter tires on your car. The Madison tire experts at at any of Madison Auto Care's seven NAPA service centers can help you with that.
Cold weather is here and Madison forecasters say that it's already "colder than cold." They're warning that "driving conditions could be slippery Thursday, with snow and freezing rain likely before 1 p.m., followed by a brief period of a rain/snow mix, changing to rain later in the afternoon."
If you haven't done so already, it's definitely time to get ready for the long winter ahead: . disconnect hoses, stockpile food and water, and make sure your car is ready by checking the battery, tires and other systems.
That's good advice - especially when it comes to your Madison tires. You want to be sure your tires are up for snow, ice and low temperatures. If you have all-weather, or summer, tires on your car, you might want to consider switching to snow, or winter, tires now.
You might be skeptical about needing winter tires, or snow tires, and hesitate to change your tires. But that would be wrong, according to roadandtrack.com. The simple truth, according to roadandtrack, is that you need winter tires "if you live in an area where temperatures regularly dip below 45 degrees F in winter."
Roadandtrack explains that "the rubber compound in car tires is only formulated to work within a specific temperature range." When the temperature gets below that, the tire "gets very, very hard and very brittle, and it will start to crack. ... This, as you can imagine, is not ideal. Generally speaking, the rubber in summer tires is formulated to perform well at temperatures from 50 to over 100 degrees. Winter tires use different rubber formulations that stay soft below 50 degrees."
