Did you know that there are a variety of performance snow tires on the market? And that there are a variety of performance snow tire categories? Not every snow tire is built for the same snow-covered road, which is why it helps to subdivide. Take a look at these for passenger vehicles:
• Performance Winter / Snow: Trades a bit of snow and ice traction for enhanced dry road handling. Excellent for European highways so they're perfect for sporty imported or domestic cars. Featured tire: Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D
• Studless Ice and Snow: Maximum snow and ice traction without studs. Features the latest in tread compound technology. Featured tire: Michelin X-Ice Xi2
• Studdable Winter/ Snow: Traditional security with enhanced traction on ice. (Use of studded tires can be restricted. We recommend checking with local authorities to confirm legality.) Featured tire: General AltiMAX Arctic
Similar categories are available for light trucks and SUVs, too.
