Best Winter / Snow Tires for 2013-2014

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 by Colin .

Now's the time to purchase your winter / snow tires! Winter tires are offered in three performance categories: Performance Winter / Snow, Studless Ice & Snow and Studdable Winter / Snow.

Performance Winter / Snow tires are for drivers who want enhanced dry road handling and are willing to trade some snow and ice traction to get it. Studless Ice & Snow tires are designed for those who want to maximize snow and ice traction without the inconvenience of using winter tire studs. Studdable Winter / Snow tires provide basic snow traction and/or the additional security by adding optional winter tire studs to enhance traction on ice.

Bridgestone

The Blizzak WS70 and DM-V1 are ranked highly in the Studless Ice & Snow category and continue to score well in our customer feedback. We've been the largest single source of Blizzak studless winter / snow tires in the United States since their introduction in 1993 and have always been impressed with their traction on ice and in snow.   

Dunlop

Dunlop is replacing their very popular Performance Winter / Snow SP Winter Sport 3D with the SP Winter Sport 4D. The tires were developed for sports cars, coupes and sedans that come from the factory equipped with low profile tires mounted on large diameter alloy wheels. They provide dry, wet and snow-covered road competence by delivering traction throughout winter's cold temperatures. Also, when you purchase a set of four SP Winter Sport 3D or 4D winter tires before the end of the year, you can receive a $60 mail-in rebate. View special offer details here.

Michelin

In the Studless Ice & Snow category, take a look at Michelin's X-Ice Xi3, and if you own a light truck or SUV, consider their Latitude X-Ice Xi2. Both tires provide good ice and snow traction, along with predictable handling in cold, dry and wintry conditions. The X-Ice Xi2 meets Michelin's Green X standard for low rolling resistance that contributes to reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emissions from CO2 gases.
