You never know what winter is going to throw at your car. Be prepared for rain, snow, ice, sleet and slush with the innovative technology of Winter tires.
Winter tires are generally stud less and provide excellent grip in many different snow and slush conditions. The tread design is usually similar to a modern high performance summer tire; it will have fairly large and stable main tread blocks. Tread sipes create little biting edges that aid snow traction. They also allow displacement of the boundary layer of water that is created as the tire contacts an ice or snow surface.
Winter tires have a mountain and snowflake symbol on the sidewall indicating they meet challenging snow traction criteria. These tires are specially made for use in freezing temperatures and on snow and ice.
