Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

Having the right tires on your car when driving in Longmont is important for your safety. All-weather tires are designed to work well in many different conditions, but the harder rubber tends to not grip well when the temperatures start to get cold outside.

Winter tires are created from a different rubber compound that is softer and able to more effectively grip the road in the cold and snow. The tread is also made deeper in order to channel snow, slush, and water. With more biting edges on the tread, winter tires are able to maintain a higher level of traction in difficult driving conditions. These features can cause tires to get worn down quickly if driven regularly during hot summer months.

At Frontier Honda, we're happy to help you choose the proper tires for your car, and we make it easy to get the switched out as the seasons change.
