Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

Having winter tires on your car can improve its performance in snowy or extremely cold conditions when compared to all-season tires. While most cars and trucks leave the factory with all-season tires, having a second set of tires for the winter could provide many benefits.

Winter tires are made of a softer rubber that stays supple at extremely low temperatures. Combined with a deep tread pattern with many biting edges, they will provide you with a higher level of control when it's snowy or slushy outside. Because winter tires will wear down quickly if used excessively on pavement, they should be replaced with all-season tires during the warmer and dryer months of the year. These tires are made of a harder and more durable rubber.
