Why Are Winter Tires Important?

Softer Rubber

Winter tires are specifically designed to take on inclement winter weather. Winter tires are made using a softer rubber composition. Normal tires become stiffer in colder temperatures, leading them to not grip the road as well. The rubber used in winter tires maintains its softness, maintaining optimal traction and control driving on snow or ice.

Winter Tires have Different Tread Depth and a Special Design

Winter tires have a special design that helps them maintain control in tough weather. The tread on winter tires is deeper than regular tires. This lets your tires maintain better traction, as the snow doesn't build up as easily. They also have a unique tread pattern that funnels the snow out so it doesn't get stuck.

Lastly, winter tires have biting edges that grip into the snow, improving handling, traction, and control in any weather.
