MYTH: It's about snow.
TRUTH: The performance of your tire is actually based on the temperature.
Summer and all-season tires get stiff at about 7 degrees. Winter tires have a different compound that allows them to stay soft, and grip the road in colder temperates.
All-season tires made with a harder rubber blend that can withstand hot weather.
- Normal traction for a wide variety of conditions
- Tread compound stiffens as temperatures drop
- Made for dry & wet conditions
Winter tires are designed with a rubber compound that remains flexible in snowy & icy conditions.
- Traction-optimized with deeper grooves & sharp, irregular edges
- Tread compound remains flexible in temperatures below 7 degrees
- Designed to grip snow, slush & ice
