How Winter Tires Are Different Than Regular Tires

You may be more likely to drive on roads covered by snow or ice in Falmouth during the winter months. Therefore, it may be in your best interest to switch from seasonal or summer tires to winter tires. Winter tires generally offer better traction on ice and do a better job of pushing snow away from the vehicle.

This means that you won't have to worry about snow potentially building up on the tire and not allowing it to make good contact with the road. Snow tires have greater tread depth to ensure that a greater amount of debris can be cleared from the road.

If you drive in extremely cold weather, you'll want to have winter tires. This is because they won't get dry or brittle when the temperatures drop well below freezing. Ultimately, you'll get better traction as well as tires that will last longer.
