In winter weather, your car needs special tires to survive on slick, icy roads. All season tires may seem to be the right choice if looking for convenience, but they don't provide a ton of traction for those roads that are extra slippery due to deep snow, ice, and freezing temperatures.

The truth is that snow tires or winter tires use different materials. There are studded and studless winter tires that provide excellent traction. The different material also withstands temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. This is crucial for handling your car on freezing mornings

The Way Brake Pads Work

Brake pads create friction and pressure, two vital members of the laws of physics. What makes them so vital? For drivers, the brake pads' friction and pressure help slow and stop a vehicle.
