All-Season Tires

When it comes to tires, all-season tires are the most popular option that you will find. These are designed to be used year-round and offer a balance between a range of road and weather conditions.

All-Terrain Tires

On the other hand, all-terrain tires have a more aggressive tread pattern that helps your vehicle grip the terrain. These tires are typically equipped on some SUVs and trucks, and the trade-off from all-season tires is that they will wear out more quickly.

Run-Flat Tires

Getting a flat tire while out on the road can leave you stranded in remote locations, but run-flat tires are designed to help you keep driving when you get a flat tire. Typically, the run-flat feature will have a certain speed and distance limit, but it can help get you to a nearby gas station or repair shop in some situations.

Performance/Summer Tires

For drivers that want more seasonal-specific tires, there are performance and snow tires available. These tires are designed to work in specific situations and require you to switch out the tires for safety reasons.

Performance and summer-only tires feature unique rubber compounds and tread patterns that help them grip on the road during warm summer days. The tread design allows them to work best in both dry and wet road conditions. When cold weather hits, these tires should be switched to all-weather or winter tires to maintain proper handling.

Snow/Winter Tires

Snow and winter tires can help you handle snow and ice-covered roads. They typically have deeper tread patterns that help with handling and stopping distance on slick roads. These tires can wear down the tread more quickly than an all-weather tire, and you should regularly check the tires to make sure it has the proper amount of tread for safety.
