Did You know

Did you know that?..

Utah is home to the only Salt Flats Speedway in the United States!

Bonneville Speedway, also known as the Bonneville Salt Flats Race Track is a unique speedway set over some of Utah’s insanely beautiful salt scapes. Perfect moisture levels in the salty surface prevent tires from overheating when performing at maximum speeds. With the long stretches of thick, salt-encrusted earth, and the barren, flat landscape, salt lakes are the ideal location for adrenaline-pumping record-breaking racing! And boy! Do they get up to some impressive speeds during these land speed race days, the fastest record ever was in 1970 hitting 622.407 mph!

Automotive Utah at a glance

Automotive Utah at a glance
Automotive Utah at a glance
Utah is landlocked with 6 other states in the Western region of the US. It's the 11th largest in terms of square miles, ranks 5th for best roads, is the 30th most populous, and is home to many a Morman. With its majestic landscapes, it's no wonder Utah has been the backdrop of many movies and TV shows, and be sure to catch some sunrise and sunset moments as they are breathtaking.

Longest road

US state route 89 is the longest road in Utah. Spanning over 502 miles through central Utah, it connects the north with the south running through both borders, and includes historical landmarks and beautiful national parks such as Heritage Park, Lake Powell, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Average car ownership rate

Out of the 3.15 million residents of Utah, 1,960,366 are registered licensed drivers. According to DataUSA, as of 2020, most people in Utah commute alone, averaging 22 minutes. With the average car ownership in Utah being 2 cars per household when it's time to replace your tires you can save big with affordable used tires at United Tires.

The highest road

State Route 150 is the highest paved road in Utah when it crosses Bald Mountain Pass at an altitude of 10,715 ft in Duchesne County, eastern Utah. It offers incredibly scenic views in the warmer months, however, during winter the road is closed off to automobiles and is enjoyed by snowmobile enthusiasts!

The most dangerous road

Interstate 15 is notorious for accidents and has been labeled the state's most dangerous road. Running the entire length of Utah and connecting the major towns and cities of Ogden, Salt Lake, and Provo in the north with St George at the western border. The volatile mix of these congested, urbanized areas and the long stretches of accident-prone highways with high speeds and big trucks make this road a hazardous hot spot.

Specialist vehicle manufacturing

Kirkham Motorsports is one of only two auto manufacturers which call the state of Utah home. Founded in 1994, they were the first ever car manufacturer to set up shop here, specializing in aluminum body Shelby Cobra replicas, with 5 beautifully created muscle cars for serious enthusiasts. The Shelby Cobra 427 KMS/SC classic and Street, and the Shelby Cobra 289 Street, Fia, and Coupe.
Whereas Vanderhall Motor Works, based in Provo and founded in 2010, manufactures 3-wheeled autocycles which have been designed for those who enjoy specialist vehicles for sports driving, touring, commuting, and city driving. 8 models have been created over the last 12 years, including 3 versions of the original Laguna, 2017’s Venice, Venice Speedster in 2018, the Carmel in 2019, Edison was an electric version of the Venice model, and Brawley, an electric off-roader UTV quad vehicle.

Bulletproof ride

Utah is home to Armormax which is a specialist company that brings you bulletproof vehicles. The technology is top of the range and the use of lightweight materials is something exciting in the world of armored cars. If you get a chance to check out their headquarters with showroom and test drive options in Ogden, do it! By appointment only however for serious auto enthusiasts or if you are in the market for an armored car, this is a fantastic option.

Interesting car museums

Utah is home to several classic and rare car museums, including the Price Museum of Speed in Salt Lake City, with a collection of rare vintage racing cars with glittering racing gold history, all cars placed first or broke records in its heyday. Millstream Classic Car Museum in Willard has a collection of 50 restored classics, and 50 more still in the process. Then there's the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum, also in SLC which is a tribute to the mighty Land Cruiser 4x4, one of Toyota's best vehicles, displaying one of every model ever produced, which is well over 100 vehicles!

Utah International Auto Expo

You can experience luxury vehicles by the likes of Lamborghini and Bentley, adopt a new furry family member with Subaru’s Pet Adoption and learn all there is to know about 350 of the newest car and truck models coming to market. This annual expo happens each January in Salt Lake City showing off the latest and greatest in-car tech and design, and you’ve got the opportunity to test drive over 20 brand new cars.

What tires do you need for Utah weather?

What tires do you need for Utah weather?
What tires do you need for Utah weather?

All four seasons

If you live in Utah you are lucky to be able to experience all four seasons. With blooming springs, warm summers, brisk falls, and white snowy winters, Utah gets it all! Temperatures range from 23°F to 93°F throughout the year, the summers tend to be hot and dry, while the winters are very cold and snowy. The extremes vary between the north and south of the state, and the elevated mountain ranges are what see the lowest temperatures and highest snowfall.
That being said, Utah experiences some extreme snowstorms and blizzards that can catch motorists unaware and unprepared, and without proper winter tires or traction devices stored in their cars. A lot of people think that all-season tires are suitable for year-round use, which in some places they are, however in Utah, with the extreme differences between summer and winter, that just isn't the case.
Utah passed a law 920-6-3 in September of 2019, stating that the mountain/snowflake tire, or 3PMSF tire, is now required for passenger cars, light trucks, and other two-wheel-drive vehicles during winter weather periods. While tires that have mud & snow (M+S or M/S) are required for four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles, RVs, buses, and semi-trailers.

The warmer months

Spring, summer, and fall see the all season tire performing at its best here, with mostly warm and dry conditions, and are a favorite type of tire amongst the state's drivers.
As summer progresses, so does the temperature, and to get the best performance from your tires during peak summer months, we recommend switching to a summer tire if you find yourself out on the scorching roads more often than not. With a softer rubber and larger tread than an all-season, they have been specifically designed to grip the road better in conditions above 45°F, thus aiding in vehicle handling capabilities.

Winter tire requirements

The requirement for motorists in Utah winters to have M+S or M/S for four-wheel and all-wheel drives, and 3PSMF for two-wheel drive vehicles. This is for day-to-day commuting in and around built-up areas and highways. However, if you are trekking into the mountains to enjoy the snow season, or find yourself out on unmanaged rural roads, then we highly recommend switching to a better-suited, winter season tire for your vehicle.
The temperatures in winter steadily drop below 45°F and the weather in the mountains can be treacherous, icy, slushy, and slippery. Winter tires are specifically designed to perform better in these colder conditions. Made with soft rubber, a big tread pattern with deep grooves, and a high amount of natural rubber compounds, they are designed to grip the road in the midst of winter's ferocity. It's proven that cars with winter tires stop 30-40% sooner on snow, ice, or cold pavement, so really it should be a no-brainer to switch to a form of winter tire, whether it be snow, ice, or studdable tires from October 15 - March 31st.

Studs or chains

As Montana sees such dramatic winter weather, winter tires alone may not be enough to keep you safe on the road. Two other options for winter driving are studded tires and tire chains. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, so when deciding which one is right for you it is important to consider the conditions you will be driving in and the type of road you will be driving on.

Drivers’ Utah guide: practical information
Utah is one of the most magical places you’ll come across to explore the rust-red landscapes of the west. Teeming with 43 national and state parks, off-the-beaten-track dirt tracks, stunning scenic routes winding through mountains and gorges, past dinosaur fossils, and ghostly relics of long forgotten railroad towns.
Use the information provided here to keep abreast of traffic and parking laws, up-to-date traffic and weather info, seasonal tire changeovers, and more.

Live traffic report

Utah's traffic can get pretty congested and gridlocked, especially during peak hours in built-up areas and during holiday weekends in and out of the cities. Not to mention dangerous when severe weather sets in. Peak traffic times in the cities are 6 a.m. - 9 a.m. and again from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m., so it's always best to avoid traveling during these times if you can.

Seasonal tire changeover

Utah has strict requirements for winter season driving. Whether you are headed to the canyons or even driving on one of the many highways, the minimum requirement for passenger cars, light trucks, and other two-wheel-drive vehicles are 3PMSF tires. Meanwhile, M+S or M/S tires are required for four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles, RVs, buses, and semi-trailers. You can see the full details of law 920-6-3 here.
All-season tires are a good choice during the warmer months, whereas in the areas where the temperatures stay well above 45°F, summer tires are even better as they can really improve the handling capacity of your car. If you own a sports car or high-performance vehicle, then we recommend exploring the benefits of performance tires, to match your car's driving ability with the perfect set of rubber!

Unspoken Road Rules

Utah has some unspoken road rules that everyone should know. Things like funeral processions always have the right of way, always yield to pedestrians, don't honk your horn unless it's an emergency, and leave the right lane free for those who are merging. Also, Utahns are known for changing lanes without using a turn signal so if you are visiting the state, it's best to be very vigilant of this, especially when driving in busy, urban areas.

Parking rules

Utah State Legislature 41-6a-1401 prohibits stopping, standing, or parking vehicles:
  1. On the roadway side of any vehicle stopped or parked at the edge or curb of a street, on a sidewalk, within an intersection, or in a crosswalk.
  2. Between a safety zone and the adjacent curb or within 30 feet of points on the curb immediately opposite the ends of a safety zone
  3. On any bridge or other elevated structure, on a highway, or within a highway tunnel.
  4. On any railroad tracks, on any controlled-access highway, in front of a public or private driveway, within 20 feet of the driveway entrance to any fire station, within 50 feet of the nearest rail of a railroad crossing, or at any place where traffic-control devices prohibit parking.
  5. Within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, within 20 feet of a crosswalk.
  6. Within 30 feet upon the approach to any flashing signal, stop sign, yield sign, or traffic-control signal located at the side of a roadway.
Utah State Legislature 41-6a-1402 cites angled parking, and parking on certain highways is prohibited.

Window tint laws

 
The percent of visible light allowed through your tinted windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission. The guidelines for the percentage of light allowed through your film and glass in Utah are detailed below.
Utah’s window tinting law 41-6a-S1635 came into effect in 2005 and consists of the following rules.

Sedan, SUV, and van tint darkness

The windshield can have a non-reflective tint above the manufacturer's AS-1 line or top 5 inches. The front side windows must allow more than 35% of light in.

Window tint reflection in Utah

Window tints can reflect incoming light and reduce glare and heat. Utah’s window tint law permits that all 3 vehicle types must not have any level of metallic or mirrored appearance on any front side or back side windows.
Some other important window tinting rules to note:
  • Side Mirrors: Dual side mirrors are required if any window behind the driver is tinted
  • Restricted Colors: Utah doesn't restrict any tint colors
  • Tint Variance: The law allows for a 5% variance in tinting levels
  • Certificates: Film manufacturers are not required to certify the film they sell in this state
  • Stickers: No sticker to identify legal tinting is required
  • Fines: If your window tints don’t meet these requirements and you are pulled over by the police, you will receive a traffic infraction, and be fined accordingly
  • Medical Exceptions: Utah tint law doesn't allow medical exemptions that would allow you to use special tint

Unless the motorcycle or motor-driven cycle is equipped with a protective windshield.

You’ll want to make sure the weather conditions are ideal and that you are driving in a reliable, high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicle with good, all terrain tires for exploring these backways as they are off the beaten track dirt roads, riverbeds, and rock trails.

Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway

The Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway is a journey back through time. Connecting in a loop, take a look back to the days of dinosaurs and abandoned towns from the railroad and oil mining eras. It's 512 miles in total, with 134 of these being across the border in western Colorado.

Mirror Lake Scenic Byway

Highway 150 is the road for the Mirror Lake Byway and starts at Kamas, heading east and high into the Uinta Mountains, through the picturesque Wasatch-Cache National Forest.

Flaming Gorge-Uintas Scenic Byway

It’s a 94-mile paved byway starting at Vernal and traveling northwards up to the Wyoming state line. The byway covers Ashley National Forest, Steinaker State Park, and Red Fleet State Park before reaching the Uinta Mountains. The route climbs and switches back throughout this section, before plateauing at 8,400 ft in elevation before reaching the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. It's here the route splits in two with the northeast route, Highway 191, forks right, drops down to Flaming Gorge Reservoir, crosses the dam at Dutch John, and then continues north into Wyoming. Whereas Highway 44 veers left and hugs the ridgeline above Flaming Gorge. It provides access to Red Canyon Visitor Center and overlooks Sheep Creek, the town of Manila, and then Lucerne Valley Marina. The geography of this area is stunning, plus it’s also known as the “Drive Through The Ages", as you pass layers of strata from various periods of the earth's fascinating history.

Sheep Creek/Spirit Lake Scenic Backway

This windy, narrow route takes you high up into the Uinta Mountains as it forks from Highway 44 a few miles from the start and ending point of Manila. Traveling east of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir you’ll follow the Uinta Fault line that is on display for 100 miles and affords travelers the magnificent sights of the twisted rock layers, towering monoliths, sheer canyon walls, cliffs, fractured rock piles, and unique natural features. This landscape is visually dramatic and not like anywhere else you’ve seen plus you might even catch a glimpse of the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep!

Unpaved, off-roading trailheads

Off-roading enthusiasts can really enjoy the scenic and remote routes and landscape that is Utah’s unique backcountry. Most of these are unpaved, unpatrolled dirt tracks that are easily damaged in storms. Therefore travelers are encouraged to check weather and road conditions ahead of time, as even a few hours of rain can completely change the safety of these tracks, and being so remote help is many hours away. It is advised to traverse these trails in high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicles, with all-terrain, rugged terrain, or mud tires in the warmer seasons, in the winter to have M+S as a minimum plus snow chains at the ready, to carry plenty of extra food and water, and have an emergency kit packed in the car. Check out BLM Office Utah for more information.

Cottonwood Canyon

Passing by Kodachrome Basin State Park and with numerous short hikes, backpacking excursions, and rural camping, the Cottonwood Canyon backway is a 47-mile trek that connects the All-American Road Scenic Byway 12 in the north with Highway 89 in the south.

Hole-in-the-Rock

Hole-in-the-Rock is a 62-mile one-way drive that follows the historic route of a pioneering expedition that searched for a route across the river, what we now know as Lake Powell. 11 miles in will bring you to Devil's Garden, and at 26 miles in you’ll see the turnoff for Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulch. Although safe for 2 wheel drive vehicles in perfect weather conditions, the last few miles of this trailhead within the Glen Canyon area are best traveled by foot, bicycle, or a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Burr Trail

The Burr Trail Scenic Backway is one of the most picturesque drives in Utah. It originated as a cattle trail blazed by stockman John Atlantic Burr in the mid-1800s and is now a 70-mile long track with a mix of paved and graded, gravel and dirt roads winding from Boulder to Bullfrog Marina at Lake Powell. It's full of scenic viewpoints and family friends hiking tracks and passes through the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
