Brad Roemer Oakland Discusses Reasons to Get Winter Tires

Posted by elain martell on June 27th, 2019


With winter now in full swing, Brad Roemer Oakland knows that it is important to make sure that your vehicle is in top shape. This means checking to make certain you have the correct anti-freeze, windshield wiper fluid, oil, and tires.

While the other three items on the list may lead to a minor inconvenience, not having proper tires on your car can lead to disaster.

Winter is not a time that you want to have on just any tire or even all-season tires. This is a time for a tire that even bears the name of its intended use – winter tires.

The Reasons

Every year, thousands of people will get into accidents not having tires that are recommended for the driving conditions.

Generally speaking, this will happen on the first or second snowfall of the year as people have forgotten how to drive on snow and ice.

Don’t be a statistic, have your tires on and remember to drive slowly. If you need reasons, other than avoiding accidents, to get winter tires on your vehicle, read the list below.

  1. No Compromise – Winter tires have a flexible rubber compound as well as an exclusive tread design that is made solely for driving on slush, snow and ice, and in cold temperatures.  This tread design will make sure that you have all the tools that your car needs to handle anything that mother nature throws at it. Old man winter can be rough in the Great White North and you don’t want to try to go toe to toe with him. Those that have will tell you it is simply not worth it.

  2. AWD – When it comes to all-wheel-drive cars, there is no better choice than having winter tires. Some people seem to think that since they have full-time four-wheel drive, they are not in need of having any other tire but the ones they have on the car. This simply is not true. If you don’t believe us, just look at your owner’s handbook and you will see that even the manufacturer tells you that these tires will be great for your car. After all, these tires were originally designed for AWD vehicles. They performed so well that they started making them for other cars as well.

  3. Not a One-Hit Wonder – While it is true that winter tires will be the best in the times of snow, ice, slush and cold weather, they might also be great in the summer as well. Remember if you snow tires have studs on them, you will need to take them off during the seasons they are not legal to have. If you are only using rubber, this rubber is softer and will grip the road more easily and there is some evidence that shows they are great summer tires as well.


If you want to make it home safe in the winter, Brad Roemer Oakland reminds you to get those winter tires put on your vehicle as soon as you can.

Don’t wait for the snow to fly as you may already be too late.
