High quality winter tires can handle harsh winter weather conditions as they are made for driving on snowy, icy and slushy road surfaces. Winter tires are sometimes called also snow tires, because they can handle snowy weather conditions. When you end up driving through a snowstorm and you have good tires on your car, the visibility is most probably your biggest problem. In a snowstorm it can be hard to see the road and other road users.
If you have an SUV, you need to get dedicated winter tires on your SUV. This way you can be sure that you can drive in any type of winter weather. SUV winter tires provide you better grip and reduced braking distances on slippery and snowy roads. So make sure that you always have SUV winter tires when driving in the winter season and that the tires have a three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol on the sidewall.
SUV winter tires can be either studded or non-studded. Studded tires are always approved for winter use, but non-studded tires you do need to check that they are actually tested and approved for winter weather. It is not enough to have the M+S symbol on the tires but they should have the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol to prove that they are safe to drive. SUV studded tires have studs that provide excellent grip on snow and especially on ice. Non-studded tires rely on unique rubber compounds and tread designs to achieve superior grip on wintry road surfaces.
