If you live in an area with considerable snow and ice you should plan to invest in a good set of snow tires. A single fender bender, a missed sales call or a missed day at work could cost you as much as a set of tires and the tires can be used for several years. The issue of your safety is also very important. Being stuck in the snow, not being able to stop in an emergency and sliding through a turn can be more than a financial consideration. Your safety is worth the investment. You can find a beneficial package deal including wheels that will pay for itself in a few seasons. Make the investment and drive safely and confidently in the snow.
All-season tires are designed to function in varied but general weather conditions: dry roads and rain and in warmer temperatures. They are not engineered for specific weather conditions. If tires were vehicles, an all season would be a family sedan while a winter tire would be a Hummer. You can get through a blizzard with massive snow in a sedan possibly but it would be a lot safer to do it in a Hummer. It’s the same way with tires. You may make it through on all season tires but you will have much better results and you will be much safer with a good snow tire.
It is said that tire pressure should be checked in the morning so that it may be adjusted accordingly as the day gets hotter or colder. The rule of thumb is that for every ten degrees Fahrenheit the temperature changes, the tire pressure will change by one psi. What this means is that if it is sixty degrees out in the morning and your tire pressure is at thirty-three psi, when the temperature rises to eighty degrees, your tire pressure will be at thirty-five psi. You should be aware of the temperature in your area and know whether to increase or to decrease your tire pressure when necessary. You definitely do not want your pressure to be too high or too low, both being unsafe conditions for driving. Many convenience stores do offer "free air" where you can check your tire pressure and adjust it as needed. It’s very quick and easy and worth it in the end.
