Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

Choosing the appropriate tire for the season in Cincinnati is important. At Porsche of Kings Auto Mall, we can show you different winter tires that could provide you with more traction and performance throughout the winter.

All-season tires come standard with most cars and trucks and perform well in a large range of conditions. They are made from a stiffer rubber that performs well at warmer temperatures, both in the wet and dry. At extremely low temperatures, the rubber gets stiffer and handles poorly.

Winter tires are made with a deep tread that has many biting edges. They are made of a softer rubber that performs well at low temperatures but can get worn out easily if driven on warm pavement. The design optimizes their ability to shed snow and water, and they have high sipe densities. The small slits on the tread improve the traction of the tire on ice and other slick surfaces.
