  • Conquer the cold: Get a grip in all winter driving conditions

    Winter tires offer a dramatic improvement in driver control and traction in all cold-weather road conditions when temperatures fall below 7°C.

    RACTire makers are encouraging motorists to get the facts about winter tires and to carefully consider the safety and performance benefits that today’s high-tech winter tires offer in all cold-weather road conditions.

    A trailblazing report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) cites extensive research that shows that winter tires deliver superior traction, cornering and braking whether the cold-weather road surface is dry, snow covered, icy or slushy.

    • Better traction, shorter stopping distances
    • Winter tires save lives, reduce collisions
    • Proper tire inflation
