Driving On All Season Tires or Winter Tires

The time of year is here again where we're all thinking about tires for the changing season. For some it could be buying new tires, either the all-season or winter variety and for others it's time to switch to your winter tires. 

If you're on the fence about purchasing either a new set of all-season or switching to winter tires, we'll give you some information below about each type that might help make your decision.

Winter Tires

  • A lot of drivers feel winter tires give them a feeling of control and confidence when dealing with difficult winter weather conditions
  • Less snow build up is reduced because winter tires have aggressive tread
  • Tread used for winter tires stays flexible at low temperatures resulting in better control of the vehicle
  • The tread designs are specifically for all types of winter conditions that can include
    • ice
    • sleet
    • snow
    • wet and cold dry roads
  • Braking performance is improved in both snowy and icy conditions

All-Season Tires

  • Designed for traction and grip in conditions that are both wet and snowy
  • Provide stable handling and even treadwear in dry and wet conditions
  • Even though this type of tire offers traction in numerous weather conditions they are surpassed by a winter tire's traction in snow and ice.
