Winter Tires vs All-Season Tires: Which are Best for Your Vehicle?

As winter approaches, our team at Audi Des Moines wants to help you prepare for adverse driving conditions. Read further to find out if your vehicle needs winter tires or all-season tires.

Do you live in an area with little snowfall? If so, all-season tires will probably work for your car. However, if you live in an area with frequent snowfall, icy roads, and black ice, then winter tires are best. Winter tires have more biting edges and deeper tread depths.

If you decide that winter tires are best for your vehicle, make sure that you get a complete set mounted. When you only replace the front tires with winter tires, then it increases the likelihood that your vehicle will skid. Furthermore, if you only have the rear tires replaced with winter tires, it can cause the front tires to lose traction, and this can make it impossible to steer if you skid.
