Keeping Tread On Your Tires

Although it might make sense to keep the same tires on your vehicle from the winter season because they helped you navigate through the snow on the roads, it's usually not a good idea to continue driving on snow tires in the summer months. Keep in mind that if you live in a colder climate or one where there's more precipitation during the year, then you might benefit from keeping winter tires on all year.

Since the tread on winter tires is a bit more flexible, it tends to deteriorate faster on warmer pavement. This means that you'll likely see a decrease in the tread on your tires soon after the summer season begins in Shelburne, VT.

Another reason why you might not want to drive on winter tires all year is that they don't offer the same kind of handling when you're driving on hot roads. They are meant for better handling in colder temperatures and in winter weather, such as snow. MINI of Burlington can easily change your tires to those that are for the summer season or those that are considered all-season tires.
