All tires look the same to the untrained eye, but there are significant differences between winter and all-season tires. Driving on winter tires throughout the year, truthfully, is a bad idea. Winter tires work to enhance traction on the road in cold and icy weather. All-season and summer tires aren’t.

Winter tires come with greater tread depth to enhance traction. During the summer, the tread depth works against the car’s performance. Pickups could be slow or, worse, handling might be compromised. Poor handling isn’t beneficial to drivers and passengers.

Winter tires will likely suffer excess wear during other seasons. Wear can lead to blowouts. During the summer, street temperatures won’t be kind to winter tires. Removing and replacing winter tires when the season changes make more sense than driving on improper ones.

Mounting new tires in Waterloo, IA doesn’t need to be a hassle. The technicians in the service depart at Community Buick GMC can do the job efficiently.
