When it comes to their tires, drivers care deeply about durability. When they’re shopping for all season tires, winter tires or winter rated four-season all weather tires, most consumers would tell you they want their tires to last as long as is safely possible.

Why do my all-season tires last longer than winter tires?

 

Take it from Nokian Tyres, the inventor of the winter tire: There is nothing safer on wintry roads than a set of dedicated winter tires. But the same qualities that make them effective on snow and ice cause them to be potentially unsafe in consistently warm temperatures.

When should I change over to my all-season tires?

 

Several decades ago, some executives in the tire industry made a marketing decision that has challenged drivers ever since: the naming of the all season tire.

What's the difference between all season and all weather tires?

 

It’s vital to drive the right tire size. Driving tires with the wrong dimensions could cause your vehicle to underperform, handle poorly or experience uneven tire wear that can make driving dangerous.

What tire size should I use?

How often should I rotate my tires?
