On almost every vehicle on the road, you have 4 contact points with the road. The pattern on the tire, the tread compound, tread depth, all help to keep the tire in constant contact with the road in the dry, rain, or snow. There are specific tires made for each of these, as well as All seasons, let me try and sort this out for you a little better.
Developed for year-round driving use, this family of Tires provide capability in all weather conditions. Designed as a solution for drivers that don’t want to manage two sets of tires, or who live in an area that experiences mild winters. They are not built with the specialized construction & materials to excel in specific conditions like a dedicated summer or winter tire, all-season tires are a compromised balance of performance.
Ice & Snow Tires; developed to provide traction in Snow and/or Ice. They do the job well but are less responsive on rain covered roads & dry traction. The compound is softer and if used on dry roads will general wear the tread down fairly quick 10,000 miles & done. These types of tires are usually on different rims & stored during the summer.
So for this discussion I am referring to high speed, handling tires. These have specific compounds, very sticky, also unique tread patterns with deep grooves & angled sides to direct water out to the sides quickly to keep the tire in contact with the road. They are made to be a quiet tire. The high speeds owner wants to hear his exhaust & not his tires! Generally speaking these are not a high mileage,(aka: Tread Life) type of tire.
There are many other styles and designs. One of the newest is a low rolling resistance. Its primary purpose is increased fuel economy.
Here at Thoroughbred Auto Care in Laurel MD, we stock many tires from Continental & General. We can get any brand you want if you like others. I get 2 deliveries from one supplier, 4 from our second source & I can go to our main supplier 30 minutes round trip to serve you in a timely manner.
Thanks for reading any questions Jon or I will be glad to help.
