EuropAsian Auto Pro's: Buy A New Set Of Winter Snow Tires

At EuropAsian Auto Pro's we know that icy roads can be dangerous if you don't have the right winter tires. Winter tires are engineered for traction in ice and snow when the temperature drops below 45 degrees. Winter tires leverage a combination of ribs, grooves, lugs, sipes, and studs.

Winter tires are made with rubber that stays softer and more pliable in cold winter temperatures. Flexible rubber is one reason you get more traction on snow and ice. However, the softer rubber also wears down more quickly. Replace your snow tires if the deep grooves that work to expel snow and slush buildup are worn down. Come by EuropAsian Auto Pro's today at 2761 S Great Southwest Pkwy and we can help you decide if it's time for a new set of snow tires.

The 5 Most Important Things To Know About Winter Snow Tires

Ribs: The edge of a snow tire has a chunky angled tread designed to move snow and ice away from the outer edge of the tire.

Grooves: Snow tires offer deep grooves to move snow away from the tire. Deep grooves trap snow into the void allowing for total contact between the tread and the road. The angle of the grooves allows the tire to eject snow from the grooves when the vehicle is in motion.

Lugs: Snow tires offer an aggressive tread in the center of the tire designed to remove snow and ice build-up. Winter tires pair more lugs with deeper grooves than an all-season tires. Sets of lugs and grooves make up a tread block. Each tread block has irregular, sharp edges that increase traction. This special design allows winter snow tires to cut through snow and ice.

Sipes: Winter tires feature-heavy siping. "Siping" is a small patterned slit on the lugs that creates extra edges for better road grip. For added traction, many tire shops offer custom siping to improve starting and stopping.

Studs: There are two types of winter snow tires, studded and non-studded. Studded tires are embedded with small metal studs that provide the best traction in tough winter conditions. In some states studded winter tires are illegal. As the name would suggest, non-studded snow tires do not have studs. Non-studded snow tires do not provide the same high level of traction offered by studded tires but still provide substantially more grip than an M+S all-weather tire. Non-studded winter tires are often paired with snow chains for extremely heavy snow and ice.

Testimonials

Hello there! My name is Derek and a grateful customer of Europasian auto pros! At the beginning of the winter storm (Valentines Day, go figure!) I ran into a curb enjoying the frosty weather damaging my steering gear on my 2017 Acura TLX SH-awd. At the moment I knew that I didn’t want to pay dealership Acura prices so I asked a great friend of the family. He referred me to Europasian auto pros! It wasn’t long until they towed my car to the shop and went to work! I had my car back and took care of the other damages that were needed and put a new battery in my car! (It was sitting while hunting, okay!!) repaired it in a very convenient time and even let me no of my insubordinance. Thank you very much Europasian auto pros! Sorry I’m late, but it has been a while and everything rides strong like it’s supposed to!! Thank you again!!
