Understanding Winter Tires 101

Winter is officially in full swing across most parts of the nation and you will want to make sure that your vehicle is equipped to handle the rigors of the season. The used car sales team at our dealership wants to ensure that you are well-informed about the different types of tires available to you so that you can safely navigate the roads regardless of the weather conditions.

Studdable winter tires are a good choice in extreme conditions. However, many cities have banned this choice of tire so be sure to check with your local authorities. Studless ice and snow tires are friendlier to the roads while still delivering the traction and capability that you need to traverse the most difficult conditions.

Performance tires are best suited to handle moderate snow conditions. Because they are designed for higher speeds, they will perform better on highways than either studdable or studless ice tires.
