Learn the Difference Between Winter Tires and All-Season Tires

Often, we hear questions from drivers like you at Cook Motor Company, and we happily provide our expert advice. Today, we want to explain the difference between winter tires and all-season tires. Understanding that difference can help you decide whether you need to visit our convenient Ladson location for a set of winter tires.

Most new automobiles come with all-season tires. They offer reliability in normal driving conditions, which can include light snow and minimal slush. Still, all-season tires' features cannot safely battle deep snow or icy roads.

When intense winter conditions visit our region, winter tires significantly improve our driving safety. Even if you have all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, you need winter tires. Those drive-train features propel vehicles, but they play no role in stopping on snow and ice. Winter tires, especially those rated for ice, will help you stop sooner in winter conditions. They'll help you move forward more confidently, too.
