Winter, all-weather and all-season tires perform in different ways
The first time you drive on freshly fallen, calf-high snow with winter tires is pretty satisfying. While the car next to you is slip-sliding, your tires grasp the road with a vice-like grip.
It’s like your treads have teeth and they’re chomp, chomp, chomping through snow and slush to gain traction. Suddenly, you are much more connected to the road and a whole lot safer.
