Different types of tires
What’s the difference in winter and all season tires? What ones are better for me? Winter tires obviously are meant for the winter time because of the winter conditions. We live in Saskatchewan where the winter weather is up and down a lot with snow, rain, ice and below zero temperatures, most of the time in the the double digits below zero.
Winter rubber is made with different compounds that help it grip better to the road in colder temperatures. The tread is also more intense and has a bunch of lines in the treads that help get more traction in snow. They say that snow on snow contact has better grip and thats what these lines in the treads do. Snow goes into these creases and develops a snow on snow contact and gives you better grip when driving.
