Winter Tires

At Permian Basin Transmission, Inc in Odessa, TX, we like to provide you with the information you need to keep your transmission happy and healthy. Here’s a tip from the pros on keeping your transmission shifting smooth this winter.

Icy conditions are sweeping the country – you may not live in a climate where you’re particularly worried about snow and ice, but even if you travel frequently or work in the north, snow tires may be an investment to consider. Snow tires have tread designed to keep ice from compacting between the treads, a scenario which renders ordinary tires useless. They are also studded, to break through ice and maintain traction. They’re so effective, in fact, they are legally required in some places.

How does this pertain to your transmission? Simple. One of the leading causes of catastrophic transmission failure is driving in winter weather. The constant slipping of wheels, and shifting from reverse to drive to get out of traction-less situations is extremely hard on transmissions, causing them to overheat, clutches to wear out, and so on. A set of winter tires can save you a transmission in pretty short order, in the right conditions.
