When the Columbia, IL Forecast Changes, You Can Be Ready
Do you live in an area with more temperate winter weather? Think heavy snowfall that quickly melts, or rain that really pelts the roads. Have you ever put snow chains on your tires because you weren't confident in your traction? If the answer is yes, you might head to a nearby Illinois tire dealer that sells Firestone WeatherGrip tires in Columbia. The Firestone WeatherGrip tire has special All-Weather features. It's built to help you handle your vehicle in snow and on wet roads. Though this benefit sounds similar to All-Season tires, the Firestone WeatherGrip stands above when it comes to winter handling. The rubber in Firestone WeatherGrip tires stays soft and pliable in close to freezing temperatures, while the rubber in All-Season tires will become hard and brittle in the cold. What happens when tires get stiff? Grip and traction can decrease if your vehicle only has All-Season tires and temperatures get frigid. Plus, Firestone WeatherGrip tires are 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake certified. The 3-Peak certification means that the tire meets required performance criteria in snow testing to be considered severe snow service rated. So, yeah — you can take a road trip through the mountains, no problem!
