Winter Tires and Why They are Not Good For Other Seasons

If you have heard of winter tires, you are probably curious about a few things. One of the things that you may want to know is if you can drive on those tires in other seasons when it is warmer. Right here is the answer to the questions about winter tires.

The first thing to know about winter tires is that there are studded and studless winter tires. The studded ones have metal studs for snow. They are best avoided when driving without snow. The studless ones are the ones without metal, but the treads are designed in a way to trap the snow and maintain traction. They can also be driven without snow.

Given the flexibility of the winter tires, they are going to wear more quickly on the pavement when it gets warmer. This is when you should exchange your tires for stiffer tires designed for the warmer seasons.
