Most of the year, you probably don’t give much thought to your tires. But, when you have to drive on slippery roads, you may think about them quite a bit. Here, the Ford parts center at Lester Glenn Ford goes over different tire options to help you stay safe.

All-Season Tires

Pretty much all cars come with all-season tires. These are designed to offer good performance no matter the season and are suitable for wet and dry roads. They can also provide excellent traction when driving on ice or snow.

Snow Tires

While all-season tires can handle snow, some drivers prefer snow tires this time of year. These tires have a different rubber composition and tread pattern, which are also deeper than those on all-season tires. Snow tires offer excellent traction and enhanced stopping power in slippery conditions.

Should You Consider Snow Tires?

If you’re worried about driving on snow, snow tires can give you great peace of mind. They may not be necessary, however. As mentioned, your all-season tires can tackle snow-covered roadways. The only catch is that they must be rotated regularly, properly balanced, and have adequate tread depth (which will all serve you in good stead no matter what the weather’s doing at any time of year).
