Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires
If you drive in harsh winter conditions in Sioux City, having winter tires on your car or truck can add an important level of safety. At Woodhouse Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT, we can show you the differences between all-season and winter tires and help you choose the appropriate set for your vehicle.
Winter tires are made from a softer rubber and have a deeper tread in order to provide more purchase in snow, ice, and other slick conditions. They have a higher number of biting edges to allow you to accelerate and decelerate. While these features are desirable in the winter, they cause the tire to wear down more quickly in the summer than all-season tires would.
Many cars come equipped with all-season tires when they leave the factory. They’ll provide a great all-around option that will handle many of the driving conditions that you’ll encounter. Our dealership will make it easy to swap tires if you need to.
