All-season tires, as the name suggests, can give your car adequate handling capabilities year-round depending on where you live. Sometimes referred to as all-weather tires, they are standard on almost any new car you purchase.TIRES BY SIZETIRES BY VEHICLE

What are All Season Tires

All-season tires are designed with rubber that will stay flexible in both warm and cold weather. The tread is also designed to give stability in snow and push away water, which helps allow all-season tires to provide adequate handling in various weather conditions.

Can all-season tires be used safely all year?

It depends mostly on where you live. Though their construction allows them to perform in colder weather, all-season tires work best when temperatures stay above 45°F. They provide adequate handling on wet, dry and light snow covered roads.

Will all-season tires give you traction in winter conditions?

Yes and no. For light snow, all-season tires should be fine. Heavier snow and ice, however, present problems for all-season tires. If you live in an area that routinely receives snow, a set of winter tires are worth the investment.

Are all-season tires best for spring, summer and fall?

Again, the answer is yes and no. While all-season tires will give you solid traction on wet roads, they do not grip the surface as tightly as summer tires. If you live in an area that experiences frequent rainfall but not much snow, summer tires are recommended.

How do you know all-season tires are best for your needs?
