Winter Driving Safety: Fact from Myth 2 of 7

The lower your tire pressure the better traction you will have – True, but…..

The negative effects of driving with low tire pressure far out weigh the positive. One, you aren’t guaranteed better traction, two, the lower pressure can cause you to blow your tire. The better alternative is to put snow tires on your vehicle in the winter, they are designed to be more flexible in the cold than a standard all-year tire.
