New tires from your local tire shop can help you when you’re driving this winter.
Driving in the winter can be scary and unpredictable. With snow, sleet, ice and everything in between, the roads can be covered in everything Mother Nature can throw at you. Some people wonder if new tires can help when it comes to winter driving. With help from your local Blain’s Farm & Fleet tire shop, you can drive safely this winter.
There are a lot of advantages that come with new tires. You’ll have better traction, better gas mileage, better performance and increased safety. Before the snow hits, you need to check your tires. If you have worn down tread or cracks in the sidewall, it’s best to take your car into the tire shop. Driving on bald tires in the winter (or any time for that matter) is unsafe.

If you live in conditions where it’s constantly snowy and icy in the winter, snow tires might be your best bet. While new all-season tires will perform better than old tires, snow tires are designed to cut through the snow and ice. Not only will snow tires give you improved grip and better braking ability, you’ll also give your all-season tires a longer life. Having two sets of tires will ultimately save you money. Read through our pros and cons of snow tires to figure out if they’re the best choice for you and your vehicle.
