When to Put on Winter Tires

Car tires on winter road covered with snow

Wondering when to put on winter tires? Don’t wait until there’s snow on the ground in Englewood. Your winter tires should be on your car when the temperature falls below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, or 7 degrees Celsius, and starts to stay there consistently. Installing your winter tires early will help you maintain the recommended tire pressure for winter.

When Should You Use Winter Tires

Designed to improve your traction when inclement weather hits the area, winter tires are a necessity in Saddle River. But what exactly sets them apart from regular tires? Read on to learn more about winter tires:

  • Utilizing tread patterns that provide a more secure grip by biting through ice and snow, winter tires are also more effective on clear roads during the winter months.
  • Winter tires are made from a softer rubber material than all-season tires. This allows them to retain their elasticity in freezing temperatures and gives more contact with the road.
  • Even though all-wheel and four-wheel drive help move you over snow and ice, winter tires are vital in helping you stop on icy pavement.

While winter tires are essential, a winter tune-up can also help your vehicle perform better in Ridgewood. Schedule a service appointment at Land Rover Paramus today, and find out when to switch to low gear.

When Should Your Tire Pressure Be in the Winter

What should your winter tire pressure be? Recommended tire pressure can be based on several different elements, including the make and model of your car as well as the brand of tires. Check out these guidelines for winter tire pressure:

  • Tire pressure of 32 to 35 PSI is appropriate for most passenger vehicles in winter and milder months.
  • The recommended winter tire pressure will typically be around 3 to 5 PSI higher than normal.
  • Even when the weather’s nice, tires can lose around 1 PSI per month.
  • The air in your tires contracts when the temperature falls. For every ten-degree drop, pressure can fall by up to 1 PSI.
  • Automatic tire pressure monitoring systems are offered in many new vehicles. If the light on your dash comes on, it means that one or more tires are at least 25% below the recommended pressure.
