I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.

Choosing Winter Tires for Ford Vehicles

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 29, 2013 at 04:31PM by Lee Byard)

The weather begins to shift, all traces of heat stolen, all hours a little darker. Winter will soon arrive... and with it comes the promise of snow on the roads.

This is for certain, no cause for concern. You’ve endured this process so many times and you’ve learned how to prepare: your brakes have been properly rotated; the oil has been changed; the engine has been flushed to ensure precision. No black ice will be your undoing--not when you’ve already had your all-season tires calibrated for your Ford. They’ll get you through this.

Except... they might not.

Winter weather takes a toll on more than your patience. It instead demands much from your car, and all-season tires may not be up to the challenges of ice, sleet and snow.

Winter Tires: Understanding the Need

All-season tires are a common choice for Ford trucks and cars. They’re not always the right choice, however. As the weather changes, you need complete protection--and winter tires provide that.

As the name implies, winter tires are designed for the season. They boast innovative treads, as well as resilient materials, that allow them to perform even in the wake of extreme temperatures. They are intended purely for the winter. 

All-season tires, however, aren’t.

The All-Season Difference

An all-season tire seems like an easy decision for drivers. This option promises convenience: its grip is reliable; its treading is long-lasting. This spares individuals the annoyance of constant maintenance (as well as the need to visit automotive repair shops for realignments). 

The great advantage of all-season tires is their flexibility. It’s also, however, their great flaw.

These tires are too accommodating. They lack the specific requirements needed for certain temperatures and environments. They are instead completely and utterly... standard. And, as the climate changes, their abilities weaken--often to the point of causing skidding, sliding and collisions. This makes them a danger and not a solution. 

Winter Tires: Essential 

Choosing winter tires is necessary for all Ford vehicles. Visit a body shop and have all-season options replaced as soon as the weather begins to change. This is the only way to combat snow properly.

Protect yourself and your Key West Ford car.
