Winter Tires

Winter Tires vs. All Season Tires

All-season tires are designed for a variety of road conditions like dry roads, wet roads, and light snow. Winter tires on the other hand are designed to perform best in winter temperatures and conditions like ice, slush and snow.  The rubber compounds in the tread of winter tires are designed to stay in contact with the road surface especially in temperatures below 45 degrees whereas the rubber compounds in All-Season tires harden as the temperatures decrease causing reduced traction.  This gives winter tires improved grip and braking characteristics when you need it most this winter.  Even on a vehicle with all-wheel or four-wheel drive, winter tires are important.  An AWD or 4WD system can help a vehicle accelerate, but will not improve braking characteristics. Don't loathe winter driving, love it by preparing for it now!

Rest assured with our "Price Match Guarantee" that you will get a great deal on your next set of tires!  See our service and parts team today for additional information.

Advantage of Winter Tires

Make Winter Drives Easier than Ever with Winter Tires at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM

When the temperatures start to fall and the chance of ice and snow on the roads is greatly increased, drivers throughout the Rome, NY area, including nearby Oneida, Utica, New Hartford, Clinton, and beyond will find themselves casting a skeptical eye towards their vehicle, unsure if it is ready for the challenges ahead. One of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the challenges ahead, is to ensure that it is riding atop high-quality winter tires.

While many drivers will feel confident with all-season tires, the tread and rubber compounds of winter tires are better-suited to the freezing temperatures and impressive precipitation. Many drivers may not expect it, but the rubber compounds in all-season tires will harden as the temperature sinks below forty-five degrees, causing decreased traction and posing a more significant threat to drivers everywhere. With a good set of winter tires, drivers can count on the healthy tread to create reliable traction, making for more confident motoring during the winter season.

Many drivers throughout the greater Rome area may assume that because they drive a vehicle with 4WD or AWD capabilities there is less of a need for winter tires, but this assumption would be incorrect. Sure, 4WD and AWD systems help drivers to get traction at the moment of acceleration, but these systems do not improve braking performance or characteristics, so drivers must instead rely on the tires of their vehicle.

Here at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM we're committed to helping you make the most of every drive this winter, so come and get your vehicle equipped with a set of winter tires at our location. Our team of auto service experts will ensure that you're ready for a more exciting future, with a vehicle fully-prepared for the challenges ahead. With our Price Match Guarantee, you can enjoy the confidence that come with knowing you got an unbeatable deal on a great set of winter tires and can further enjoy the adventures throughout Oneida, Utica, New Hartford, and beyond.
