Because snow causes many problems in winter, we recall some special rules both at the wheel and in preparing the car for the road. Let’s see what needs to be done to get the best of winter – winter driving tips.
The winter tires
Winter tires have a composition that allows better resistance to low temperatures, as well as a tread pattern that provides better grip.
Ideally it would be to buy new winter tires, and even if at first sight all-season tires seem more cost-effective, their winter efficiency is much lower.
In the event of heavy snow or snow storms, it is necessary to mount the winter chains. They are mounted on the wheels of the engine deck (if you have 4×4 traction, it is necessary to mount the snow chains on all four wheels) and can be used at much lower speeds – generally between 50 and 80 km/h, depending on the specifications.
Pay attention, do not run on dry asphalt with winter tires. Besides the fact that the running noise is increasing and the direction will not be as easy to handle, the winter tires will suffer.
If you need to mount non-slip tires when you are on the road, make sure you stop as far as possible from the road, and on the highway do not do this on the emergency lane, but only in car parks.
