Winter Tires vs All Season Tires

All-season tires offer traction in a variety of different weather conditions, with the convenience of being able to handle the fluctuation between the heat of summer and the cold of winter. There are key differences between the two, however, and the following information should help you make the right decision.

Winter Tires

  • Better braking in ice and snow
  • Better overall performance in all winter conditions: snow, ice, sleet, slush, rain, and cold, dry roads
  • Winter tires feature tread designs
  • Specially formulated tread rubber that stays flexible at low temperatures for better vehicle control
  • Tread designs or "sipes" made specifically for ice, snow and other severe winter conditions, which reduces snow build up

All-Season Tires

  • Function well in hot and cold temperatures
  • Provide stable handling in both wet and dry conditions
  • They're long-lasting and designed for year-round use
