Winter Vs. All-Season Tires

Tires are one of the most under-considered components by drivers today. We take for granted the importance of having the right tires outfitted to our vehicles for optimal performance until we find ourselves in the middle of a snowstorm or other severe weather conditions. At Castle Honda, we want to ensure your new Honda is always protected by providing access to the right tires for the right season.

What is the difference between winter and all-season tires?

Winter tires outperform all-season tires in snow, rain, and ice. They have a more aggressive tread pattern and are made from a softer rubber composite. The softer compound allows the tread to crush the snow, collect it, and then toss it as the tire rotates which allows for better traction, more stability, and the ability to stop without sliding.

Alternatively, the softer rubber compound of winter tires deteriorates more rapidly in comparison to all-season tires in the warmer seasons. It is our recommendation to have 2 sets of tires affixed to rims that should be interchanged between cold and warm seasons. Contact our staff today to ask about our tire and tire storage services.
