Are Winter Tires Better Than All-Season Tires?

Snow tires have a special rubber compound that is specifically designed for cold temperatures. The rubber stays pliable in cold temperatures to give drivers better traction in snowy and icy conditions. Winter tire tread consists of sipes or small cuts designed to flex and bite at snow- and ice-covered roads.

When the temperature drops to near freezing, all-season tires lose traction. This is why winter tires are necessary when winter weather hits.

Tips for Purchasing Winter Tires

Snow tires should be installed in sets of 4 to give you better control of your vehicle

Consider buying winter rims. They are better suited for handling abuse from winter conditions, like salt and grime.

To prevent tires from deteriorating, store them in a temperate environment.

Purchase and install your winter tires before snow begins piling up to save you time and hassle.

Stop asking yourself if snow tires are worth the investment. Snow tires can save you from fender benders. Plus, no single tire will perform well year-round. Winter tires can be a little pricey, but they promote peace of mind, your safety in winter conditions, and will save you money in the long run.
