Tire Manufacturers Agree It is commonly agreed that a primary cause of early tire breakdown and poor tread life is under-inflation. Low tire pressure not only causes excessive heat build-up in the tire, creating dangerous driving conditions, but also shortens tire life. Unwanted heat will rapidly increase tread-wear and can even tear down retreads and destroy tire casings. As much as 90% of all tire breakdowns is the direct result of tire under-inflation
This is not really a good idea. As was mentioned above, winter tires are made of a softer rubber compound. That means they will wear down much quicker than a tire designed for warmer driving conditions. They are designed for wet slippery driving. Warm, dry pavement is not their friend, it is really their enemy. This is important for a couple reasons. First you will end up replacing your tires more frequently simply from wear. The primary reason for leaving snow tires on all year would be to eliminate the need for another set of tires but quicker wear will mean you will actually be buying tires more often. Secondly, a deep tread is important for a snow tire to be most effective. The tread helps the tire dig into snow and ice and the deep channels help to divert slush from under the tire. As the tire is worn by summer driving, its effectiveness in the winter is significantly diminished. Another reason to change tires as soon as the snow clears for good is for a more comfortable ride. All season tires and summer tires among other things are engineered for a comfortable ride. Snow tires are not. All season and summer tires are engineered to be quiet on the road, winter tires tend to be quite loud on the road. Since you are using a good snow tire, you can put a summer tire on your car for better performance. In this way you will be using tires specifically designed for the seasons you are driving in. This way you can achieve better traction and a smoother and quieter ride in all seasons.
No matter how carefully you drive or how cautiously you choose your routes sooner or later you are going to have to replace your existing truck and trailer tires. If you are an owner operator then you know that this is a very costly event and you do need to take time to select just the right type, brand and design of tire that matches your typical driving experience. The type of tire that you use should be designed for your type of driving. In addition you need to consider the position on the truck or trailer for the tire. Generally there are three positions that are possible and they are designated as an all positions tire, a drive axle or a trailer axle tire. In addition, since these same tires can be used for different types of vehicles they are also rated for long haul, regional, on/off road, urban and off road. Different tire companies may have different designations, but they will equate to the same purpose.
