When the winter is approaching, then it is a good time to start looking for snow tires. Snow tires, or winter tires as they are also commonly referred as are designed for winter use. They excel on winter surfaces such as snow, ice and slush. A studded version will perform slightly better on icy surface because of a better traction the studs provide. Otherwise both studded and non-studded tires or studless tires as they are also called will do the job.
Both options are approved for winter driving and will have the winter symbol on the sidewall to indicate that. High quality winter tires usually have also low rolling resistance, which increases your fuel efficiency.
