Driving On Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

All-Season Tires

As the name suggests, all-season tires are great for many different driving conditions, but they perform best on dry pavement with warm weather. When temperatures drop down, and the roads receive heavy snow, all-season tires begin to show their weaknesses, as the rubber gets hard and the tread will struggle to go through snow. However, if you live in an area where snow melts within the same day, you will be okay to use your all-season tires.

Winter Tires

On the other hand, you will have winter tires, offering a rubber compound that handles the cold, and the tread is specially designed to handle heavy snow. Although winter tires are perfect for winter, you will have worse braking performance and traction when temperatures rise because the rubber compound will get too soft. To avoid prematurely wearing out your winter tires and to have the best traction, you will want to use the appropriate tire for the season.
