    Don't Get Left Out In The Cold...Practice Tire Safety

    (NAPSI)—Rough roads aren’t the only thing to worry about when the temperature drops. Tires also get cold and need extra grip to perform at their best. That’s something your all-season tires might not be ready for. In fact, in temperatures of 45° F or below, the rubber in all-season tires gradually hardens, leading to decreased road traction and less grip. That can cause difficulty with braking and turning. Winter tire safety experts urge drivers to consider the weather; if you often drive when it’s below 45° F—snow or no snow—it’s time for a set of winter tires to keep you and your family safe on the roads this year.
