Looking to ensure that your Cadillac is ready to take on the winter in the Minneapolis area? One of the first steps you can take to promote the safety of you, your loved ones, and other motorists around you is to replace your summer or all-season tires with a fresh set of winter tires. Luckily for you, our Morrie’s Golden Valley Cadillac tire center is here to explain how a winter tire differs from a traditional tire and what exactly makes them so vital when it comes to winter weather driving.
In order to deliver maximum braking effects, winter tires are manufactured to have both a flexible rubber compound that retains its elasticity in colder temperatures, as well as a unique tread pattern that’s made exclusively for use on snow, slush, and ice. These tires are designed specifically to excel in the winter and have the ability to provide Minneapolis area motorists with increased traction levels, shorter stopping capability, and a significant increase in directional stability at higher speeds.
All in all, the one thing to keep in mind is that your tires are your vehicle’s only point of contact with the road, and for this reason, they deserve to be in the same conversation as your brakes when it comes to the most important aspects of your vehicle.
If you’re interested in learning more about our selection of new tires, including winter tires, or you would like to schedule a service appointment to have a new set of winter tires installed on your vehicle, please feel free to contact us online or visit us in-person here at Morrie’s Golden Valley Cadillac!
