The Disadvantage of Winter Tires To All-Season Tires

When considering whether to buy winter tires or not, you have to think about all of the advantages and disadvantages of winter tires. If you live in a snowy area, then you are definitely going to benefit from winter tires. Otherwise, you may want to stick with all-season tires.

One of the reasons that winter tires are so effective on snow and ice is that it has flexible rubber grips the road well compared to the all-season tires. While they are good for keeping the vehicle under control for the winter, they will wear out quickly when the spring comes or when there is no ice on the road.

All-season tires have stiffer rubber which makes it effective during the other seasons. They perform well on various road conditions other than snow which is why a lot of vehicles are released with the all-season tires already on them.
