Being Road-Ready in Winter Weather

Driving in winter weather includes potential dangers. Having the right tires on your vehicle can help keep you safer, but which ones?

Studded tires can handle cold weather. They have small pieces of medal embedded in the tire treads, which dig into the ice for added traction. Unfortunately, that medal can dig into and damage roads when there's no ice or snow. Some places have outlawed these tires, and others limit their use. Before buying, find out what your community allows. Consider studless tires. Through technology, such as tread designs and advances in rubber compounding, these tires maintain flexibility in freezing weather, which helps maintain traction in snow and other wet surfaces.
