Snow tires have a special rubber compound specifically designed to stay pliable in winter temperatures. Because of this compound, winter tires offer greater traction compared to all-season tires.
Winter tire tread consists of sipes, small cuts that flex and bite at snow-covered roads. Sipes help disperse snow, provide better acceleration, and reduce braking distance.
When the temperature drops to near freezing, all-season tires lose traction, while the rubber tread on winter tires remains pliable and maintains its grip. This is why winter tires are necessary when winter weather hits.
When choosing a set of winter tires, look for the snowflake logo. This logo, created by the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association, guarantees that the tires have met traction requirements and are recommended specifically for use in snow.
No single tire performs well year-round. For this reason, snow tires are worth the investment during winter. Enjoy peace of mind and greater handling in snow.
