Winter Tires - What's the deal?

New York drivers that have heard about winter tires but are wondering whether they're really necessary can rest easy. Yes, they're important! It's important to get yourself a set of good winter or studded tires. Winter tires are designed to grip the road under cold conditions, providing Kings Park drivers with increased traction during snow, muddy, slushy, and wet conditions. Studded tires provide increased traction as well. The main difference between studded and winter tires is that studded tires comes with studs (shocker, right?). Well, studs are protruding bits of metal that are embedded in the rubber of the tire, helping to provide biting traction. The metal will dig into icy roads, providing more traction for Smithtown drivers. Beyond the tires, drivers might want to get their oil changed, too.
