The Benefits

  • Traction

    Winter tires offer the best of traction and grip in severe winter weather conditions. They’re built to help provide confident control in ice, slush, freezing rain, and snow.

  • Braking

    Winter tires help provide enhanced braking performance in snowy and icy conditions.

  • Grip

    The pliable tread compounds featured in winter tires remain soft even in frigid temperatures – which makes for a stronger grip in comparison to all-season tires.

Comparing Weather Conditions

Before you decide which tire type is right for you, keep these key differences in mind.

  •  All-Season
    • Designed to: face changing weather conditions like rain, sleet, slush and even light snow.
    • Consider if: you live in a place that faces a variety of weather conditions. However, if you know you’ll have to drive through snow or ice on a regular basis, you might want to consider winter tires for the colder months.
  •  Summer
    • Designed to: help provide excellent performance on both wet and dry roads.
    • Consider if: you enjoy driving with precision and live in a place where it’s warm regularly. Don’t let the name fool you though; summer tires do offer impressive wet traction. Just make sure to change to winter tires if you know you’ll have to drive through snow or ice.
  •  Winter

    • Designed to: enhance grip in even the most severe winter weather conditions including slush, snow, freezing rain and ice.
    • Consider if: you live in a place that frequently sees snow or ice. However, winter tires aren’t designed for all-seasons. They should be replaced with either summer or all-season tires once the weather warms up.
