Having the right tires can be everything when it comes to enhancing your handling, especially during extreme weather. Among the many tires on the market, likely the main ones you're going to encounter are winter tires and all-season tires. These tires offer unique benefits that meet very specific situations, so it's important you find the right tires for you.

To help you learn all about what these tires have to offer you, New Holland Ford has brought you this guide. Just read on and learn how you can improve your safety and handling in the New Holland, Lancaster, and Reading areas.

What are Winter Tires?

If you ever had to drive in an area that gets very heavy snow, you probably had a friend or family member who told you to get winter tires. These tires are specifically designed to provide greater handling in the snow, and they're ideal if you plan on doing a lot of winter driving.

The main performance benefit you'll see from using winter tires is that you'll have more responsive handling on ice and snow as well as shorter braking distance. While all-wheel drive can help you have better acceleration in snow, winter tires will give you the much greater handling that you need in order to stay safe in the winter.

What are All-Season Tires?

Not everyone can be prepared to change their tires every six months, and to help with that, you have all-season tires. These tires are specifically designed to provide you with solid handling for every season. However, these tires can often be a jack-of-all-trades, master of none.

Overall, with these tires, you can expect solid handling in the snow and rain along with great handling in the summer when the roads get hot and dry. However, when faced with heavy snow, these tires won't offer the specialized performance of winter tires, so you'll have to drive much more carefully.

Which Option is Better for me?

When it comes to deciding on if winter or all-season tires are better for you, it really comes down to deciding what your needs are. Winter tires are ideal if you have to drive through heavy snow, so if you have very extreme seasons, it's better to purchase more specialized tires.

However, if you don't drive through heavy snow often, you may want to consider all-season tires. These tires will offer a much more convenient driving experience that will ensure you don't have to change your tires as the seasons change; you'll have no trouble driving year-round.
