What Types of Winter Tires Can You Use?

There are three types of tires that are available for use during winter driving in Hickory. The first type of winter tire is the studded tire, and it is generally designed to help gain traction on icy roads. However, they may be illegal for use when roads are in good condition because of the damage that they can cause.

The next type of winter tire is the studless tire that comes with larger grooves for better traction and handling. For many drivers, this type of tire makes driving on snow feel more like driving in rainy conditions.

Finally, you can get a performance tire that is perfect for areas where it may be cold but not as snowy or icy. They can help get traction on both clear and snowy roads, and it may be possible to use them during other times of the year as well.
