Better Grip & Traction
There’s no question that winter tires give your vehicle better handling of the colder elements. The rubber compounds in winter tires were designed to stay soft in cold temperatures for better grip in snow. Additionally, the aggressive tread designs in winter tires also provide more stability. At the same time, they also simultaneously push away water and slush from the bottom. Combined with the type of high-end performance your BMW vehicle can produce, you won’t have to worry about getting stuck in snow or sliding at an intersection again. You just have to drive to your heart’s content.
For Changing Seasons
Even during the transitional period in-between winter and summer, as well as vice-versa, it’s actually more recommended that you have your winter tires during this time. This is because all-season tires start losing their grip and the braking distances extend once temperatures start reaching below 7 degrees Celsius. Of course with all-season tires, they’re more prone to puncturing because the rubber will harden in the lower temperatures. That’s why it’s typically better to change tires around late-October or early November. That’s also what we at Edmonton BMW would also recommend. But no matter what time of the year you decide to change them, bring them here and we’ll switch them out for you!
A Financial Advantage
Driving a BMW vehicle is a great experience, but sometimes it can come at quite the financial expense. Luckily, if you’re looking to save some extra money to use for your BMW’s maintenance, using winters tires actually helps lower your expenses for your vehicle. How so? Considering that Edmonton winters typically take around 6 months of the year, you’d only be using your set of winter tires for only half of the year. Meanwhile, the lifespan of your tire’s treading is extended and you save more compared to replacing your tires every time they wear out!
These were just a few reasons why we recommend using winter tires over all-seasons during the winter. If you’re still looking for other methods for winterizing your BMW this winter season, visit the rest of our website to learn more! You’ll be conquering the Edmonton winters in no time!
