Know Your Tires
Tires are a key factor when determining how well your car will perform in winter weather. Tires fall into three general categories: Summer, All Season and Winter. Summer tires are not designed for snowy or icy conditions, whereas all-season tires provide some level of snow and ice performance and are labeled either M+S or All Season. Winter tires have tread compounds that remain pliable at low temperatures, with tread patterns that trade off some performance in dry and wet conditions for excellent ice and snow traction. True winter tires are marked with the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol. The 3PMSF rating is based solely on acceleration performance on medium-packed snow and does not take into account braking, turning or ice traction, making it important to check ratings and reviews when deciding on winter tires.
