Winter tires, also referred to as snow tires are designed to provide better traction, handling and braking capability on cold snow, ice or slush covered roads. If you live in an area that doesn’t experience much cold “winter weather”, all-season tires are probably a safe bet. However, if you drive regularly in cold, icy and/or snowy conditions during the winter months, winter tires are a smart investment.
To maintain the safety, control and traction of your vehicle, it is recommended to install winter tires in sets of four as opposed to only replacing one or two. This is true for all vehicles – front wheel, rear wheel and all wheel drive applications. Mixing winter tires and all-season tires on the same vehicle causes the front and rear axles to have unequal traction and control. That seriously impacts the safety and handling capability of the vehicle, especially in emergency situations. Matching all four tires on your vehicle helps to ensure dependable and consistent traction, control and safety.
Note: Remember to change back to your all-season or summer tires when the cold temperatures come to an end. Using your winter tires in warm, dry conditions can cause them to wear out prematurely.
