A Sunny Day is the Best Day to Install Snow Tires

Why on Earth is a sunny day the best day to install snow tires? Snow tires don’t offer any benefits if they aren’t on your car prior to poor winter driving conditions. If you wait until a significant snow fall to put new tires on your car or swap out your tires for snow tires, you’ll be in the company of many other procrastinators. Why make your day even more hectic by sliding around on the road and squeezing in a tire appointment?

We’ve enter the season in Minnesota where one hour can be drastically different than the next. Take advantage of the nice, sunny weather and get your tire errand done. It is more likely your wait time will be shorter and you’ll get the time with our tire specialists to ask questions and shop for what you need without worrying about getting home before the weather worsens.
