What are the different tire types?

As the name suggests, all-season tires work well all year round, providing acceptable performance in dry, wet, and snowy conditions. All-terrain tires are the standard for SUVs and trucks and have added grip and open treads for handling rugged terrain and regular road driving. Mud tires are ideal for off-roading because they have self-cleaning treads that discharge the accumulation of mud and sand that might otherwise result in a loss of traction. Snow tires, also called winter tires, offer the best grip in wet and icy weather, with large grooves that bite into ice and snow as well as softer rubber that does not harden as much when the temperature drops. Low-profile tires have thin sidewalls that give cars a cool, sleek look, and they offer better handling. Performance tires have the excellent maneuverability, traction, and grip necessary for high-speed racing.

What essentials should you keep in your car?

There are certain supplies you should keep in your vehicle at all times to provide comfort and safety in the event of a breakdown. A first aid kit, a jack, a hazard light or reflective warning sign, waterproof gear, spare tire, snacks, water bottles, mobile phone, and a torch for performing repairs in the dark are all must-haves. For long, lazy drives in the summer, it is a good idea to take extra water, and a GPS helps ensure you always know where you are going. In the winter, extra blankets and a flare are useful additions to your trunk.
