Winter Tire vs All Season Tire | Castle Honda

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.

What Exactly Is All-Season Tires

All-season tires are some of the most widely used tires in the world because they can serve multiple purposes. This particular type of rubber is very versatile in its overall actions since it'll provide a useful tread life, a quieter drive, and year-round performance. All-season tires are used and fitted to many automobiles before they even leave the factory. Their high combination of benefits makes them a prime choice for summer and winter driving, but there are some exceptions. You can utilize these tires during the cold-weather season, but they're not generally the best option for harsh wintry weather. Driving around in light snow is possible, but their grip strength and lack of handling in frozen precipitation are limited.

Winter Tire vs. All-Season Tire

A winter tire comes explicitly designed for cold weather, even in the harshest of conditions. Heavy snowfall and black ice can be a nightmare on the roadways. Winter tires are a standout under these conditions because they'll provide deeper tread depths as well as unique tread patterns. Snow buildup is significantly decreased for better traction. Thanks to their uniqueness, snow and slush are easier expelled. Winter tires are also more flexible, which allows the tire to grip the road much more efficiently. Traction on ice is significantly increased thanks to the tire's biting edges, tiny slits in the thread. Winter tires are recommended for regions that receive a consistent mix of ice, snow and sleet for an extended time.
