WHICH TIRES SHOULD I BUY? ALL-SEASON OR WINTER TIRES?

All-season compared to regular tires compared to winter tires are pretty self-explanatory. Winter tires are meant to operate in wintry weather. Regular tires are designed to function in summer weather and all-season tires succeed in changing climate conditions. The temperature of the rubber has a big effect on how the tire behaves with regards to grip and slipping, and for that reason different season tires are produced from different rubber compounds. Thompson Lexus Doylestown also has Bridgestone Blizzak Winter and Snow Tires available for your to purchase for your Lexus.

What will you do with your tires that you use the rest of the year when it isn’t snowy or icy? You can store them at Thompson! We offer complimentary off-season tire storage so there is one less thing you need to worry about. At Thompson Lexus Doylestown we want to make it easy for you to have the proper seasonal tires on your vehicle. Have any questions about Blizzak Winter tires or storing your off-season tires with us? Give us a call (215) 345-1110 and ask to speak to a Service Consultant.

BENEFITS OF BUYING WINTER TIRES

With low temperatures in Pennsylvania and New Jersey your car requires high traction. Winter driving usually means you encounter more than a few flurries. Things like blizzards, black ice, and below-freezing temperatures can make winter driving extremely challenging. That is why we recommend winter tires.

Their specific rubber compounds stay flexible in cold weather and give you the confident handling and superior stopping power you need to safely get where you’re going when the temperature drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

FIVE WINTER TIRE MYTHS

Winter Tires Are Only For Snow – In cold temperatures, all-season tires stiffen, reducing grip. The rubber compounds and other components that make up winter tires keep them flexible in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Tire flexibility allows for better vehicle handling and stopping.
You Don’t Need Winter Tires If You have All-Wheel Drive – Ever see SUVs on the side of the road when the weather’s bad? All-wheel drive helps you control the tires, but that doesn’t mean much if the tires themselves aren’t flexible enough or don’t have the right tread design to push snow and ice out of their way.
All-Season Tires Work Fine In The Winter – In additional to having flexible compounds and specialized tread designs, winter tires help make your all-season tires last longer: while the winters ones are on, the all-season ones aren’t wearing down.
Brakes Alone Stop Your Vehicle – Especially when roads are slick, tires without specifically designed winter tread patterns can simply slide when the brakes are applied. Winter tires have deep groves and small slits called sipes that cut through snow and ice, keeping more of your tire in contact with the road.
Winter Tires Are More Expensive – The cost of winter tires is usually comparable to any other kind of tire. Plus, switching between winter tires and all-season or summer tires makes both sets last longer than they normally would.

Winter tires can give Lexus vehicles a lot of leverage for driving on slippery or icy surfaces.
