The Benefits of Snow Tires

We all have heard about the importance of snow tires. Every year, we change out our tires for added protection on the road. What benefits do snow tires offer, though? Why is it so important to ensure your car is fitted with them when the road gets slippery?

There are a few distinct benefits that snow tires offer you:

  • the tread rubber on winter tires has been specifically designed to be flexible in freezing temperatures. Other tires’ tread rubber gets stiff.
  • Winter tires also have special designs that help eject water and channel slush. They also have deeper tread depths, which helps reduce any snow buildup that may occur.
  • Winter tires have thousands of small slits in its tread, which helps you grip ice and gain traction when on the road.
