If you’ve been debating your next set of tires but aren’t entirely sure what to get, you may have looked at all-season tires as a possibility. All-season tires are a great choice for many drivers in North Carolina because they are designed to be effective in warm and dry or mild wet conditions. Most of the differences between all-season tires and other tire types occur with the treads.
- Weather Conditions. If you think about the four seasons in North Carolina, it’s easy to see that our climate is fairly mild compared to some other places. All-season tires work well here because, even when we get snow, it’s usually gone in a day or two and the roads are fine to be on. A new set of all-season tires should last you a long time on your vehicle.
- Winter Tires. Some folks often wonder if there is a need to switch from all-season tires to winter tires during the colder months of the year. The only time that might be recommended is in the higher elevations up in the mountains where they can have more severe weather than the foothills and coastal areas. If you’re planning to take a vacation up in the mountains, you can talk with a tire professional about what kind of tires you might need to make the trek easier during the winter season.
- Tire Changes. Another important factor that factors into choosing tires is whether you’re going to need to change tires frequently. Having tire storage at your home or business is going to be an issue if you’re constantly switching during the different seasons. You need to be able to store your tires where they won’t rot or suffer damage. Additionally, if you switch to tires that aren’t appropriate for the season, you could end up damaging the tires and your vehicle. All-season tires will likely prevent the need for many tire changes from season to season.
