Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow
As the winter season is upon us, make sure you are equipped with the right tires for snowy conditions. What makes a tire a “snow” tire? – Snow tires are identified from its lugs, tread design and flotation.
- Lugs: Snow tire lugs are dimpled and or siped which create additional biting edges for increased traction.
- Tread Design: Its tread design is positioned with large spacing in-between the lugs to help disperse snow and slush.
- Flotation: Tire flotation is extremely important when handling loose sediment. To minimize ground disturbance, snow tires tend to stay afloat – keeping you from sinking.
From recreational to chore, Carlisle Brand Tires offer many tire options that fit your needs when tackling snowy conditions.
