All-Terrain Tires with Mountain/Snowflake Symbol

Monday, September 13, 2010 by Chad Hocker

The mountain/snowflake symbol branding on a tire sidewall lets us know, at a glance, the tire is really good in the snow.

Some Alpine passes require a traction device such as chains to get through when winter is at it's worst. Tires with the mountain/snowflake symbol allow you to pass through as well. Some states also require at least 6/32nd of tread depth. Double check locally on the tread depth rule.

The following non-winter, light truck/SUV tires are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.

On/Off Road All-Terrain

On/Off Road Commercial Traction
