Let Audi Danbury Help You Prepare For Winter

"Why do I need a set of winter wheels and tires?". It's a valid question we get asked often here at Audi Danbury, since the winters around here can get pretty rough, but our performance car customers and luxury vehicle owners often wonder about the efficacy or ROI of purchasing an extra set of snow tires and rims for sole use in the colder months.

The answer to our question above isn't a one-size-fits all answer, no more than there's a one-size winter wheel and tire combination designed to fit all Audi models (there isn't). In deciding on a winter wheel & tire set, then, you'll have to keep your Audi model in mind, as well as its trim, factory equipment, and more. But back to that initial question - why do you need a winter set of wheels & tires? Here are some of the best reasons:

  • Better traction & More Grip: Winter tires are engineered to withstand colder temperatures and adverse road conditions with different tread-patterns and compounds than all-season or even summer tires.
  • Safer Emergency Maneuvers & Braking: The increased traction that winter tires bring helps you drive more safely, brake more efficiently, and have increased confidence during emergency maneuvers.
  • Each Set Lasts Longer: When you're using one set of tires and wheels for part of the year, and another for a season, each set will last a longer amount of time, offsetting your initial investment significantly.
  • Convenience: As opposed to having to mount and balance winter tires only on the same set of rims, getting a winter set of rims and tires makes it easier to switch when the season changes.
