Tires play a critical role in the handling, maneuvering and braking of any motor vehicle. No matter what the type...RV, SUV, utility vehicle or commercial truck, tires are the only thing that contacts the road. Obviously, there is much more than just the vehicle resting on those tires, its overall safe operation is as well. By following some basic tire safety practices, you will not only drive with a greater degree of security, you will extend the usable life of your tire investment considerably.
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.
In an effort to minimize cost, some people try using snow tires only on the drive wheels of their vehicle. This is an ineffective and possibly dangerous solution. This may give you the confidence in certain situations of having control however this is an illusion and the false confidence may lead to reckless results. Putting snow tires in the front on a front wheel drive may allow better starts and stopping but it places you in danger of fishtailing around turns. The rear wheels will not have sufficient traction to handle the turns your front wheels initiate. Similarly and possibly more dangerous, putting snow tires on the rear wheels of a rear wheel drive car will allow better starts but will do nothing for steering or braking. It is always advised to install snow tires in a complete set of four.
