10 Best Winter Tires for Ford SUVs

10 Best Winter Tires for Ford SUVs

It's no secret that the winter months can be very cold and brutal in Canada. During the winter, the climate can turn dangerously cold extremely fast, which can create unsafe road conditions rather quickly. For this reason, it is important to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the hazardous conditions that are undeniably in the near future. To help make sure that your vehicle is ready for the slick, icy road conditions, here is a helpful guide to picking out the right winter tire for your car.

 

 

What is the Difference Between Winter Tires and All-Season Tires?

 

Many people think that all-season tires and winter tires are the same things. These two types of tires may have a few similarities; however, they are not the same thing and are used for two vastly different conditions.

 

All-season tires are specifically made to be driven all year long. They feature a detailed pattern that allows them to grip the road during the winter and allows them to not skid across the hot pavement in the summer.

 

 

While all-season tires have a good tread that makes them grip the road, they are not ideal for extremely cold temperatures. Winter tires are specifically designed to drive on cold, icy, winter roads. Winter tires are studded and able to climb over ice and snow without losing traction. Also, when the rubber gets cold, it starts to harden and becomes stiff. Winter tires are made from specially designed rubber compounds that are able to stay flexible in sub-zero temperatures. If you plan on driving in below-freezing temperatures, it is recommended that you use winter tires for your car instead of all-season tires.
