When Should You Put On Snow Tires in New York?

September 30th, 2019 by

As the weather starts to cool down and the leaves start to change here on Long Island, we can’t help but start to prepare for the upcoming winter. Before we know it, snow, ice, and cold weather will be here just as fast as the winter holiday season! One question that comes up when preparing for the winter is, “When should I put snow tires on my vehicle?” The best time to put your snow tires on is around or after Thanksgiving time. Around that time, as you start to prepare for the winter time, and for the holidays, be sure to add “Install Winter Tires” to your to-do checklist and have the following benefits when winter weather does arrive:

  • Stronger road grip in snowy conditions
  • Reliable braking
  • A break for your vehicle’s all season tires
  • Greater tire replacement and service savings down the road

Should I Put Winter Tires or All-Season Tires on My Mercedes-Benz?

All season tires are designed for a composed ride and fuel-efficiency; they can perform in all sorts of conditions, but they are prime in the spring and summer. That is not to say that all-season tires will leave you stuck. However, if you are looking for the best performance in snowy and icy conditions, winter tires are the way to go. Winter tires are intended primarily for snowy weather, and include these unique qualities:

  • Rigid yet flexible tread rubber for better traction
  • Deep tread depths to prevent snow accumulation
  • More biting edges for improved grip in icy conditions
