What Makes Winter Tires Unique

There are specific features included in winter tires, which give them the ability to better handle the dangerous conditions of winter roads.

Rubber Composition

The tread rubber of an all-season or summer tire will not perform well in extremely cold temperatures because it will stiffen and provide less sufficient traction. In winter tires, the tread rubber is designed to remain soft and pliable in cold temperatures so your tires can continue to provide the best level of grip and traction.

Tread Depth and Patterns

Winter tires feature deeper tread depths than other tires, as this improves traction in the snow and also helps lessen snow buildup. Additionally, winter tires feature unique tread patterns, which help prevent hydroplaning by efficiently pumping water through the tread. Moisture is pushed out and away from the tire so your wheel can make solid contact with dry ground.

Biting Edges

Winter tires also include one other thing that regular tires do not have — zig-zag grooves covering the tread. These grooves act as biting edges to help your car grip the road even in snowy and icy conditions.
