The safest tires during winter are winter-approved tires

For the winter season it is recommended that you use winter-approved all-weather tires, a year-round tire you can use in all weather conditions, whether there is winter or summer weather. When the temperature drops they act as winter tires and at high temperatures they act as summer tires.

It is important to understand that despite the name, all-season tires should not be used during wintertime. They are to be used in all seasons except the winter season. All-season tires, just like summer tires, become hard at low temperatures, as the rubber used is not optimized for low temperatures. Hard rubber can’t create the same grip and traction as soft tires.
