Why Good Tires Are So Important

Tires on a vehicle are in constant contact with the road and are subject to various factors that can impact their condition on a daily basis. Driving habits, debris, quality of the roads, and even weather all play a part in degrading your tires over time. Regardless of road conditions or weather, you need to be able to drive where you need to go, and your tires need to grip the road to keep you safe.

How to Choose the Right Tires for New England Driving

We experience all manner of weather conditions in our hometown of Lyme, CT. New England is legendary for bitter cold and winter storms, but we also experience the opposite side of the spectrum with balmy and hot weather in the summer. The drastic seasonal variations mean we may need different types of tires during different seasons.

All-Season Tires

All-season tires are made up of a unique mix of rubber compounds, giving them properties that can grip the road and withstand changing temperatures. They are the go-to tire for drivers looking for reliability and consistent performance for a broad range of conditions. With all-weather tires, you'll have a good balance of grip for summer rain, light winter snows, or dry conditions.

Summer/Performance Tires

Summer or Performance Tires are designed to grip roads in warm-wet or warm-dry conditions. The superior traction also makes them strong performance tires for street braking, speed, and agility. The rubber in Summer tires is generally tougher, and the tire tread is not as deep to allow more surface area contact with the road.

Benefits of Summer/Performance Tires

  • Improved braking, cornering, and traction
  • Top-of-the-line street traction
  • Enhanced performance in warm, wet driving conditions
  • High-performance with more options to improve speed and agility

Benefits of Winter Tires

  • Tailor-made for cold temperatures, snow, ice, and mixed freezing precipitation
  • Softer rubber for improved traction
  • Increased braking performance on snow and ice
  • Helps prevent sliding

Is It Worth It To Have Two Sets of Tires?

It is very common for New Englanders to switch to winter tires to prepare for months of snowy weather. All-weather tires paired with all-wheel drive are adequate for the average driver in our area, but if you live in higher elevations or on unpaved roads, winter tires are a good investment to keep you safe in more challenging conditions. The tread depth on winter tires is significantly deeper, and the rubber is softer to provide the necessary grip. Since it's not recommended to use winter tires in warmer weather, you may need two sets of tires. Our team can swap them out for you seasonally.

Can I Use Winter Tires All Year Long?

Winter tires are not recommended for warmer weather because of the unique make-up of the rubber. The softer rubber and deeper tread are excellent for gripping ice and snow while performing well in cold temperatures, but warm weather makes the rubber even softer and more susceptible to excessive wear. If you drive on your winter tires in hot weather, you'll find that you will need to replace them a lot faster. It is far more economical to swap out to summer or all-weather tires in the warmer months.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light

Your Subaru is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system, a sensor that lets you know the pressure levels of your tires in real time. The indicator can alert you to any significant changes in the condition of each tire so you can maintain proper pressure levels at all times. When the light comes on, it could mean the pressure levels are outside the recommended ranges. A flashing TPMS light may indicate a problem with the sensor itself. When the light comes on, our techs can troubleshoot the problem, provide a fix, and get you back on the road with confidence.
