If you live in an area that has harsh winter weather, you will need a tire that has been approved for winter driving. These will include your range of winter tires, both studded and non-studded winter tires as well as some All Weather tires. During the winter, you will need the maximum performance you can get from your tires. A winter tire has been designed to stay soft and flexible even at low temperatures as well as to provide you with the necessary traction to be able to drive safely through snow and ice.
A high quality tire should also provide you good driving comfort and low rolling resistance, so that you don’t waste unnecessary money on gas. In addition, you need to make sure that you check the air pressure in the tires, as low tire pressure can increase the rolling resistance and wear of the tire. The tire pressure decreases with decreasing temperatures, so check it regularly.
