Understanding Why You Should Not Use Winter Tires in Other Seasons

While it may be tempting to leave on your heavy-duty winter tires throughout the year, the bottom line is that this is not a recommended standard of care for your vehicle. The automotive experts at Barbour-Hendrick Honda Greenville want you to be an informed and confident driver. We welcome the opportunity to answer any questions that you may have about driving with winter tires.

Winter tires are specially designed to handle the rigors of the season such as extreme cold temperatures and precipitation. The deep thread depths of these types of tires are not needed once the winter weather has ended.

While this deep tread is perfectly suited for winter weather, it will wear down quickly during the warmer months, making it a poor tire choice for seasons other than winter. The characteristics of winter tires also decrease their maneuverability and performance during times when the temperatures are above freezing.
