Winter and All-Season Tires Function Differently Under Different Conditions

When you need to buy new tires for your car, you will have to decide if you should purchase winter or all-season tires. It makes sense to buy all-season tires, but these tires may not be as capable of handling snow and ice as winter tires. Here’s what you need to know about these two types of tires.

Winter tires are designed to handle tough winter conditions. Winter tire treads are deep and remain flexible in cold conditions. The tread also has thousands of tiny slits, which makes these tires better at gripping the ice.

Most new vehicles come with all-season tires because they provide good performance in all types of weather. These tires have good tread life and provide a quiet ride, but they can lack performance in extreme winter conditions.
