The most practical tire option for drivers of family vehicles that value comfort and longevity over higher performance. Recommended primarily for three season usage in our climate.
Offer better winter performance than a conventional All Season tire but are generally noisier, offer lower grip in warm weather and wear quicker. While not matching the performance of a dedicated winter tire these do have the 3PMS (Three peak mountain snowflake) symbol which indicates the tire meets required performance criteria in snow testing to be considered severe snow service rated.
The best tire for our winter driving conditions. The rubber compounds of winter tires are designed to remain flexible, allowing the tire to grip the road better. Deeper tread depths reduce snow buildup and provide better traction on the snow. Winter tire tread patterns are designed to channel snow and slush and expel water. Winter tires also feature an increased number of biting edges and high sipe densities, or in other words, thousands of tiny slits in the tread that provide traction on ice.
A good option for drivers of SUV and light trucks that are looking for a tire than can offer on-road and off-road capabilities in one tire. They have confident year-round traction and aggressive tread and sidewall designs but are less comfortable, noisier and quicker wearing than a regular All Season SUV/Truck tire.
The optimal tire for drivers of sporty cars that demand more performance than a basic all season but want a more comfortable and longer lasting tire than a dedicated summer performance tire offers. Recommended primarily for three season usage in our climate.
