Why Do I Need Snow Tires?
Snow tires are designed for the harsh winter conditions that we receive here in the Midwest. As opposed to all-season tires which are designed to be a jack-of-all-trades tire, snow tires are engineered to provide extreme grip on packed snow and ice as well as withstand the cold winter months.
Specifically, winter tires have unique tread patterns that channel snow and slush, preventing build up in the treads. The actual material of the tire is altered as well. Using different rubber compounds than all-season tires allows winter tires to maintain flexibility, and therefore grip, in the extreme cold.
Studded winter tires provide an additional advantage thanks to dozens of metal pins or studs, that are installed on the face of the tire tread. These studs drive into ice and packed snow providing supplemental traction and safety.
