Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

Many drivers wonder weather they need winter tires if they have all season tires on their car? At first we should understand what is the main difference between winter tires and all season tires. Every driver’s needs are different depending on the weather and road conditions.

All season tires

Many vehicles are fitted with all season tires when they leave the factory. They are created to provide a relatively smooth ride, good tread life and year-round performance. All season tires also are designed to perform in a variety of conditions including wet roads and light winter driving.All season tires are a great option for drivers who live in moderate climates and do not frequently encounter extreme cold, ice and snow in the winter months.

Winter & Snow tires


You should have the right tire when driving in winter weather, because winter is extremely unpredictable: from heavy snowfall to black ice. These conditions challenge tires to provide traction like no other season of the year. The combination of low temperatures, ice, and snow can be best met by winter tires, which are specially designed to perform in winter conditions.There are specific features of winter tires that make them unique: tread rubber, tread depth and patterns, and biting edges.Winter tires vs Seasonal tires

Finally, snow tires VS all season tires: which are the best?


There is no exact answer, because it depends on the conditions which you drive. So, if you see just a few snow flurries each year than all season tires are probably the way to go.But if you know there’s a period when icy roads are always an issue, mounting winter tires isn’t an over-the-top precaution – it’s an essential safety measure that could save your life.And remember to re-mount those all season tires when spring rolls around. While winter tires are undeniably superior in extreme winter conditions, they’ll wear down faster on warm, dry pavement.With Kambio you can make your vehicle’s seasonal tire change very fast and without wasting any time.
