How to Choose Winter Tires


Many folks wonder how to choose winter tires for their vehicle.  Here are 2 key factors to help you make a good decision.

1 – Buy tires with at least a 4⁄32-inch depth and replace them when their tread has worn down to 2⁄32-inch depth.

2 – There are some excellent all-season tires available that make a good choice for winter driving. Some have an M+S (mud and snow) rating, with a tread designed for enhanced performance on most road conditions.  Whether they’re adequate for your car depends on the severity of your winter weather and if can wait to travel until roads are cleared. For some areas, they might not be enough.  Winter tires or snow tires are specially made to better grip snowy or icy road surfaces. If you live in an area with plentiful snow and other winter precipitation, they may be well worth the investment.

There is not necessarily one answer to the question how to choose winter tires, but hopefully this will help you get started.
