Choose the Right Winter Tires


Your car’s tires are also very important when it comes to winter driving, according to Matt Edmonds, vice president of, an online source for tire reviews and tire, wheel, and performance accessory purchasing. “If temp are near or below freezing frequently where you live and drive, then winter tires are the better choice to increase traction and safety,” Edmonds says. “Winter tires give drivers more traction because the tread compound stays flexible when temperatures go below 45 degrees, the tread designs have more “biting edges,” and the tread depth helps move volumes of snow, ultimately allowing the tires to grip the road better.”

There are different types of winter tires, each designed for specific conditions. When shopping, consider your needs, and replace all four tires with those designed for your weather conditions. “Depending on your needs, this may mean either studless ice and snow tires or performance winter tires if winter is light snow and cold temperatures,” Edmonds says.

Came to Auction Direct after a horrible experience at CarMax. Found a car I liked on line and was pleased to find that they were ready for me when I arrived for a test drive. Sales rep Luke Sheldon was professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful, even to the point of suggesting other cars to consider before we made our final decision. Could not have had better support!

I thought that Donna was very experienced and knowledgeable in the car business. Not only that but she was real and very nice and personable to both me and my wife. Donna was not overbearing and gave us space to really look and make a decision on our own. She was able to answer all our questions pertaining to purchasing the vehicle and I was very satisfied with her and the staff at Auction Direct. A very family type atmosphere. Donna also worked very hard to get me the best financing possible and i was very satisfied with that outcome. If I ever need to purchase another vehicle I will definitely come by and see Donna at Auction Direct. Just a really good overall experience with NO BUYERS REMORSE.
