Winter Tires Vs. All Season Tires

WINTER TIRES

  • Winter tires stay flexible in temperatures below 7°C to provide the necessary traction for cold-weather driving conditions.
  • They reduce braking distance on cold, wet, ice and snow-covered roads in comparison to all-season tires.
  • The traction provided by winter tires enhances the performance of anti-lock braking systems (ABS), vehicle stability assist (VSA), traction control and all-wheel drive in winter conditions.
  • Industry data shows that in cold weather, a vehicle equipped with winter tires has approximately a 40% less chance of being involved in a collision versus one equipped with all-season tires.

ALL-SEASON TIRES

  • All-season tires are designed to provide traction and durability in a wide variety of seasonal road conditions. However, they cannot provide the same levels of traction in winter conditions as a proper winter tire.
  • They are best suited for use in temperatures above 7°C.
