What’s the Difference Between Snow Tires and All-Season Tires?

December 22nd, 2017 by

Deciding between snow tires and all-weather tires can be a tough choice. Explore these differences before you make your choice:

  • Snow tires are designed with more tread to provide better traction in snowy and icy conditions.

  • Softer compounds found in snow tires better grip the road, but they can wear quickly.

  • All-season tires are made up of harder compounds and therefore wear better.

  • All-season tires deliver better performance and efficiency on dry roads.
