Why You Should Have Winter Tires

Why You Should Have Winter Tires

Winter tires are named that for a reason. In the following article, we are going to discuss why you should equip your vehicle with winter tires if you haven’t done so by now.

First things first, we need to start off with the fact that there are all-season tires out there. All-season tires are not bad per say, however, they could be considered only moderately good in extreme heat or extreme cold. Also, they cannot be considered well-performing on snow and ice, they are simply not designed for such obstacles on the road. Whereas, winter tires are specifically designed for those kinds of terrains and this kind of weather. What makes them so special?  They have flexible rubber compounds and a tread design that is unique and made especially for snow, ice, slush, and cold temperatures. There is no compromise because the tires are not designed for other types of weather. If you decide to get winter tires you will definitely benefit from increased traction while accelerating, you will also notice that the distances get shorter when you are braking or stopping, also, there is a noticeable increase in directional stability at speed. All in all, your vehicle would be much safer on the road and far more stable.

Hopefully, you will choose the safest way to drive during the winter with the special kind of tires designated for the season. One last thing that I would like to give you as a piece of advice is to choose an auto repair facility that is trusted and well-known for the change of the tires, should you decide to make the smart decision and get winter tires.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

Kansas City Assembly Plant uses interesting and innovative supply chain structure called Automotive Alle…
