Ready or not, snow-packed and icy roads are just around the corner. Having proper tires in good condition are paramount to safe driving on slick Colorado roads. The type of tread on your vehicle's tires plays a significant role in how much traction you get. According to CDOT, on snowy roads at 60 MPH, your summer tires will take over 800' to stop. By comparison, your M+S rated tires will be more like 600' and winter rated tires (with a snowflake or mountain symbol) will stop in about 300' in the same conditions.

Keep in mind that tread depth must be at least 3/16 deep all the way around your tire. You can measure tread depth by inserting a Quarter in the treads. If they cover up Washington's head, you're good to go!
