The great tire debate about winter tires or all weather tires. May be all season tires? How should you choose? They all black and round what’s the difference?
I get this questions quiet often from my clients. What do you think of the Nokian all weather tires? Most people would like to avoid to install winter tires if they could. The Nokian could do the job on my BMW, Mercedes and or Porsche? Theoretically it could (Than it begs the question why did you invest in a high tech high performance car?) practically it will not suffice, your car’s manufacturer of the above brands spend hundreds of millions of dollars (Euros) to make your car handle behave like intended a performance oriented finely honed machine.
Winter Traction: Interlocking and adaptive 3D sipes work in tandem to enhance stability and grip on icy surfaces.
Wet Traction: Dual-action shoulder grooves are straight at the bottom to evacuate water.
Resistance to Wear: A high-density reinforced compound allows for a more stable tread block, providing longer more even wear.
What could be the difference between all weather and winter tires?
The easy way to make a comparison, like your seasonal shoes, you definitely don’t want to wonder outside in flip flops in the snow and ice. How about running shoes? They would be your all weather tire equivalent so this is why we wear winter boots to keep you on your feet securely in any inclement weather.
Your winter tires, like your winter boots are purpose built for the cold slippery road and severe conditions.
We hope this helps to make your tire decision somewhat easier in the coming winter.
