Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

If you drive in snow often, having the added traction offered by snow tires could greatly benefit you. While most cars and trucks leave the factory outfitted with all-season tires, having a second set for the winter months could keep you safer on slippery surfaces.

All-season tires are made of a hard rubber compound that allows them to perform well in a wide range of conditions and last for a long time. The rubber becomes stiffer as the temperature drops and can lose its grip on the road if it gets too cold. Winter tires are made of a softer rubber with a deeper tread pattern that will shed snow and slush more effectively. Because of these features, winter tires will wear out more quickly than all-season ones when driven on hot pavement.

At Burdick Volkswagen, we make it easy to switch between tires as the seasons change in Cicero.
