But why use a winter / snow tire? To extend the life of your summer tires. And, of course, to keep you safe when the roads threaten your sense of control—because it is all about traction, confidence and control. Though we are very grateful to the many engineers who have improved our control via all-wheel drive, ABS, or traction control, it must be said they do not create traction. These systems leave that up to the tires. (Read more.) So, when you switch to boots from shoes, switch to winter / snow tires for the same reason.
With specific tread designs and multicell rubber compounds, you'll achieve traction that's considerably better than anything you'd achieve with your summer tires. (Yes, even if they're all-season tires.) And that traction transforms into added confidence behind the wheel of a vehicle navigating ice, snow and slush. (Read more.)
