Winter truck tyres to keep you on the road when snowing
Winter truck tyres are essential for your truck because on the icy and snowy roads the last thing you want is your truck being out of control carrying tons of weight on it. That is why simple preparation for the season can take you a long way. Make sure before the season comes you get yourself prepared. The official data when you need to change from summer to snow tyres is when the average temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius. Having that information keep in mind that if you are driving in the night hours you may need to change the tyres before the others since night hours will get faster to those degrees.
When driving on icy and snowy roads your tyres main priority is to keep good traction on the road with a nice grip so everything can be handled properly.
One of the biggest mistakes drivers make around that time is that they don’t check if their truck has properly aligned wheels. This means that the wheels themselves are not turned in the same direction which causes additional issues. It makes the tyres have unusual and uneven damage on them which will require change. That is going to cost additional money and time. More importantly though having your wheels not going in balance will cause less grip on the road which lessens the traction you have. Having a big truck carrying a heavy load without control is properly one of the most awful and dangerous situations you can be. All of that can be avoided with a simple regular check to your local mechanic to see if everything is working fine and properly. Of course be aware of the signal that if the tyres have uneven damage on them it may be exactly that.
