Here’s The DL On Tires Winter vs All Season
All Season Tires
Offer versatile performance, designed to perform in a variety of conditions including wet roads and light winter driving.
Why not an all season tire all year? ….
In cold temperatures the tread rubber of an all-season tire stiffens & becomes less able to provide sufficient traction.
Are specially designed to perform in the combination of cold temperatures, ice & snow.
Tread rubber compounds of winter tires are designed to remain flexible in cold temperatures allowing the tire to grip the road better unlike the all-season tire.
Winter tires have deeper tread depths and unique tread pattern reducing snow buildup and providing better traction on the snow. Winter tire tread patterns are designed to channel snow and slush and expel water.
Winter tires feature and increased number of biting edges & thousands of tiny slits in the tread that provide traction on ice.
