Winter Tires

Winter weather can make driving an absolute headache-losing control on a snowy road, sliding right past a stop sign, or struggling to just make it out of your driveway. Too many drivers think that a stressful commute is just a part of winter life, but there's a special type of tire that's designed specifically to make winter driving easier: winter tires.

Winter tires are known as a few other names, like cold weather tires and snow tires. But that last one-snow tire-isn't entirely accurate. When temperatures drop, winter tires excel on all road conditions: snowy, slushy, icy, and even dry roads.

How Winter Tires Work

Differences Between Winter Tires and All-Season Tires

All-season tires are fine in the winter, right? It's right there in the name-"all-season". Here's the thing: an all-season tire has grooves that are deep and wide enough for mud and light snow. That's about it, so they're also known as mud and snow tires.

Mother Nature throws a lot more at you in the winter than a little light snow, though-like blizzards, black ice, and freezing temperatures. All-season tires aren't designed for these harsh conditions. They also harden at temperatures below 45•F, and a stiffer tire is less able to grip the road. Winter tires are made with special rubber compounds that stay flexible in cold weather. So even on dry roads, winter tires can improve your handling and stopping power.

Can you use all-season tires in all four seasons? Yes. But they may not be your best-or safest-option.
