Good Reasons to Change Your Tires When the Seasons Change

At Honda of Ames, we understand that it can be tempting to drive on your winter tires throughout the year. You may think that you can save money by just using that one set of tires each year. In some cases, the thought of having to spend time putting on and taking off tires is too much to bear.

However, it is important to use winter tires during the winter and summer tires during the summer. This is because they are made of different compounds that are formulated to handle the specific road conditions that you are likely to face during those time periods.

Using winter tires during the summer may result in faster wear or a lack of handling. Ultimately, this can result in spending more money on tires or to repair other damage. Therefore, it is best to only use a tire as stated by the manufacturer.
