Edmonton area dealership provides information on the benefit of using winter tires

SHERWOOD PARK, Alberta, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- With the winter months swiftly approaching, Sherwood Ford is encouraging drivers in the Edmonton area to make the switch over to winter tires. Because they are made with a different rubber compound than summer or all-season tires, winter tires provide more traction and grip on slippery road surfaces common throughout the winter months. Winter tires also have larger grooves between the tread which allows them to cut through deep snow.

For even more traction on winter roads, studs can be placed on winter tires. These studs are generally easy to install, and can give drivers an extra sense of peace of mind in knowing that their vehicle is getting the best traction on less-than-ideal road surfaces. Because tire studs come in varying lengths, drivers can rest assured knowing their vehicle's tires will be able to make the commute to work in the morning no matter how much it snows during the night.

Drivers who have already made the switch to winter tires but now need a place to store their summer or all-season tires can now store their off-season tires at Sherwood Ford. The dealership provides a climate-controlled warehouse setting for tires to ensure they stay in the perfect condition while not in use. When storing tires with Sherwood Ford, drivers are assured that their tires are completely safe and secure, and are insured in case anything were to happen.

Those interested in learning more about winter tires, or storing their off-season tires are encouraged to visit Sherwood Ford's website, www.sherwoodford.ca. On their website, the dealership provides helpful information on the benefits of winter tires, and other ways to make sure a vehicle is ready for the upcoming winter months. For additional information, Sherwood Ford can be reached at (780) 417-2985, or 2540 Broadmoor Boulevard in Sherwood Park.
