With winter rapidly approaching, those who want to spend the season safely should take proactive steps today! Although most modern vehicles come standard with so-called all-season tires, those who buy winter tires will experience better traction and safer trips as long as the cold lasts. These specialized components may not be legally necessary, but they’re a smart choice that no one should pass up! We strongly recommend them to drivers from Waukegan to Round Lake and beyond.

Advantages of Winter Snow Tires

Once you’ve experienced the performance of winter snow tires, you’ll never see the roads around Gurnee in exactly the same way again! We recommend them over all-season tires for all of the following reasons:

  • Narrower Width: A narrower tire generates more downward pressure. With narrower winter tires equipped, you’ll be better able to cut through the snow.
  • Specialized Grooves: The friction from your tires will tend to melt snow and ice, and the water that results from this action can limit your control. Winter tires use specially-designed grooves to direct melted water from your path.
  • Lower Freezing Temperature: Rubber that’s nearly frozen through isn’t going to provide much traction. Winter tires have been designed with special material that retains its give, even in the extreme cold.
  • Quicker Stops: In snowy or icy conditions, winter tires can help you bring your vehicle to a halt up to forty percent more quickly than all-season tires.
  • Safer for Everyone: Only around twenty percent of drivers say that they use winter tires. You can do your part to make the roads safer for everyone by becoming part of that group.
  • Easy Installation: Installing winter tires doesn’t take very long, and we make the process as easy-as-can-be at Libertyville Chevrolet. Once you’ve made the switch, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without them.
