Winter Tires for Your PorscheTim S
Winter is coming. Last year the New York City area saw more snowy days than in the recent past. And while it’s best to simply avoid being on the road when the white stuff starts falling, it’s not just snow that affects vehicle dynamics during the winter months.
From colder temperatures degrading the grip of summer and even all-season tires, to black ice conditions that can come out of nowhere, having the right tire could make all the difference.
As we get into November and the temps begin to drop, now is the time to prepare.
It’s rare you’ll find a GT3 RS driving around on a snowy day, but it just goes to show that no matter what you drive, outfitting it with the right equipment can open up driving opportunities that would otherwise keep performance vehicles sidelined.
With a softer tread compound that stays pliable in colder temperatures and an aggressive design that includes extra biting edges and siping to quickly channel away moisture, winter tires are engineered to dramatically improve traction and control.
A dedicated summer tire, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is the exhaust opposite of what you want to be rolling on in colder temperatures. The compound becomes too hard as the mercury drops, creating a precarious situation even in dry conditions.
The Michelin Pilot Sport Alpin is a popular choice for sports cars, coming in a range of sizes to fit your Porsche. These came mounted from Porsche as part of their GT3 winter wheel set that is available as part of the Tequipment catalog.
Whether you’re in need of just tires, or are interested in a complete winter wheel and tire set, we can take care of you every step of the way.
With the proper tire, you’ll be better prepared for what Mother Nature has in store for us this winter.
