It is crucial to understand the importance of having winter tires. Keep in mind that your tires are the only object in contact with the road. It's critical that they're in good condition and that they're a suitable fit for your vehicle and season.
 
Long tread life, fuel economy, high ride comfort, and traction are all advantages of all-season tires. However, these tires that work well in the summer heat do not provide the same level of traction in the winter. All-season tires have a tread compound that provides very little cold weather traction and hardens in freezing temperatures. As a result, the tire traction suffers.
 
Winter tires, on the other hand, are designed to provide safety and control in ice, snow, slush, rain, and cold weather. It's similar to the distinction between athletic shoes and snow boots. Even though athletic boots will allow you to walk along a snow-covered sidewalk, snow boots are far safer.
 
Few key features and benefits:
 
  • They have unique tread patterns that improve traction on snow and ice by creating channels that drain water and eject snow.
 
  • In snow and ice conditions, having a strong tire grip is essential for ensuring that the car stops when you want it to and steers smoothly while in motion.
 
  • All winter tires use a very soft rubber compound that remains flexible even as temperatures drop, allowing for more precise handling.
 
  • The tires contain a lot of sipes, which are slits in the treads that cut through slush and water and improve traction by preventing hydroplaning.
 
  • The symbol of a snowflake is always found on the sidewall of tires that meet the required snow criteria. This symbol helps in the differentiation of winter tires from all-season, mud, and snow-rated tires.
 
  • Some insurance companies will provide a discount if you have winter tires. Contact your insurance provider for more details.
