When it comes to driving safety of a car, it is a combination of how safe the car is and how safe the tyres are. The tires are more involved in preventing the accident and the car will more decisive in how well you will survive a crash. The safest car with bad tyres can still experience accidents if the tyres are in bad condition. It is very important to have the correct tires for the weather conditions that you might experience when you drive. Driving with summer tyres or tyres that are not approved for winter conditions, during winter conditions is very dangerous. In the worst case you will basically not have any grip or traction.
So when selecting tyres for your vehicle you need to decide what tyres you will need during the year. Do you need a set of summer tires and a set of winter tyres and alternate between the seasons? If the winters are not so harsh you can also choose to use an all-weather tire that can handle both summer and winter weathers. Whichever solution you choose, you need to make sure that you have high-quality tyres. This will provide you with the best safety regardless of what weather you will face. The best option if you have winters is always to have a set for summers and another set for winters. This will keep you safe during the winters and will give you the best performance during the summer.
During the summers it is mostly the heavy summer rains that can cause problems, so you need good tyres that can help prevent aquaplaning. Tyres have developed a lot and new innovations in the tread design have been launched that enhance the flow of water away from the surface to help prevent the occurrence of aquaplaning. For the winter you need to make sure that you have proper tyres that can handle snow, ice and slush. These conditions are impossible to cope with if you have summer tyres. A winter approved all-weather tyres, can manage, but if the winters are severe, you are better off changing tyres between the seasons, but you need to make sure that you change the tyres in time.
