Drivers, especially inexperienced ones tend to forget the importance of the tires in a car. The tires are the last point of contact of your car with the road and you should make this place ultra-secure and fail-safe to prevent any kind of accidents that may happen.
In my opinion and through various research it is proven that the tires are the riskiest malfunction your car could have on the road, for that purpose take care of your tires and be careful about them.
Another thing that tends to be overlooked with most users is the environment that they live in, and this translates into the seasons of the place you are living in. For example, if you are living in Texas or Nevada you probably don’t get a lot of rain and the winter season is probably non-existant, for that purpose you probably go with summer tires all year long. On the other hand, if you live somewhere around the Tri-State area, Seattle, Illinois or Indiana you probably deal with rain all year round and winters can be harsh.
While everybody knows that summer tires are not appropriate for winter and nearly everybody drives with winter tires in the winter, rain specific tires are again overlooked and forgotten about.
What are rain tires though? Rain tires are categorized into different categories like all-terrain, all-season, high-performance, snow, off-road, summer tires, etc.
However, there is something that all rain tires have in common it is the great thread depth and amazing traction in dry and wet conditions, but especially in wet roads. These tires will stick to the pavement at all times and as you all know driving in the rain can get unnecessarily complicated at times.
Without forgetting I have to mention that traffic is a dangerous place to be, and driving without tires that are appropriate for your conditions, is risky business.
While putting yourself to risk, you put the lives of others on the line as well, passengers in your car, pedestrians, and other cars, it takes just a single mistake for things to go very bad, and you should always be cautious. We know that we can’t control the weather or other external factors, but what we can do is take precautions to be safe.
On top of the safety aspect that is the most important, choosing tires made for rainy weather will also save your pocket. Rain tires are very affordable in the US, they last a long time, and on top of all this since the performance for rain driving is increased it will result in less fuel consumption which is amazing. Whatever you do practice safe driving and take care of your car properly.
