Hurricane Irene came crashing in to Long Island New York. Luckily the damage was mostly tree's and power outages. We are happy our tires did not go floating up the coast or end up in the Atlantic ocean. Before the hurricane some customers had asked me what the best tires to use while driving during a hurricane? =0!!
The best tires to use during a hurricane are the ones that get you inside to shelter before the hurricane starts. If I had a recommendation for tires to be used during a hurricane and only for hurricane driving purposes for a standard vehicle it would have to be a tire designed to handle water filtration and handling capabilities for high wind speeds and tight cornering. This means you would want to purchase strictly high performance summer tires. You could also purchase wings so when you pick up speed the hurricane will carry you back to the Land of OZ. Now the clean up process starts as you can see in the picture below there will be plenty of that for the next few weeks.
