Just as you place your flip flops in the back of your closet and pull out your favorite pair of boots, your vehicle also needs proper winter outfitting. It is important to consider the security that a dedicated ice and snow tire can provide for your vehicle during the winter months.
"One of the most important factors in starting, steering or stopping on ice and snowy roads is your tires," said Mark Cox, Bridgestone Winter Driving School director and Pro Race Driver. "It makes no difference if you have a front-wheel, four-wheel or rear-wheel drive, your vehicle will perform better in most winter driving conditions if it is equipped with purpose-built snow tires."
So take a little advice from an expert and begin your search for a reliable winter tire. Cox recommends the Bridgestone Blizzak product line. With more than 90 sizes currently available in the United States, the Bridgestone Blizzak family of ice and snow tires will fit most of today's popular vehicles.
When the snow starts flying, you'll be able to get out and enjoy the winter scenery knowing you're prepared to navigate safely on those wintry roads.
