Difference Between Winter/Snow Tires and All-Season Tires

Everyone in Wisconsin has driven in the snow. We’ve all spun the tires trying to go up a hill or accelerating after a stoplight. Many of us have slid through an intersection with both feet on the brake pedal.

4-wheel-drive helps stop the tires from spinning when you accelerate, but they don’t help when you’re braking.

What does help stop a car from sliding when braking in snow? Tires made specifically for the winter seasons. What about all-season tires? Tires are like sneakers; wearing them all year is fine, but you won’t get the benefits of boots or sandals during winter or summer respectively.

Winter/Snow vs All-Season tires information

Pros and Cons of All-Season Tires


  • Don’t have to change each season
  • Practical in summer/winter
  • Don’t wear quickly in summer
  • Low rolling resistance, better mileage


  • No extreme benefits in winter/summer
  • More prone to sliding in winter
  • More prone to spinning in winter

Pro and Cons of Winter/Snow Tires


  • Softer rubber to grip at low temps
  • Better acceleration traction in snow
  • Better stopping power in snow
  • Better control when turning on snow


  • Softer material wears faster
  • Not practical in warm weather
  • Changing each season

Snow/Winter vs All-Season Tires: notes

These are general guidelines. If you have a sports car, considering special tires is a good idea in cold weather climates. If you have a vehicle with 4-wheel-drive, winter tires aren’t as important. Many factors influence the decision to buy either all-season tires and ride them all year or to buy winter/snow tires and change them out for the season, including finances and the condition of your vehicle.

All-Season Tires are Better if You…

  • Live in a more moderate climate
  • Don’t often drive on ice
  • Don’t often drive in snow

Winter Tires are Better if You…

  • Live in a colder climate
  • Often drive where ice is possible
  • Don’t have 4-wheel-drive

In the end, you need to choose what’s right for you. Call Ravenswood Auto Repair Center today and let us help you make the decision.

Knowing when your car or truck tires are ready to be replaced is simpler than many vehicle-owners may realize. Inconvenient trips to the tire shop can be avoided if you keep an eye out for the warning indicators your tires are getting too old to drive on anymore. From visible damage to forces out of your control to your tires making noticeable noises, there are a number of urgent signs you must be aware of if you don’t want to be running to New Berlin Auto Repair for last-minute replacements, alignments, and repairs.

3 Urgent Signs Your Tires Need to be Replaced

How to tell if your Car Wheels and Tires are Worn Down

  1. Identifying Different Types of Tire Damage
    Damaged Tires New BerlinOne of the most frustrating reasons a tire will ever need to be replaced, tire damages can be the result of a variety of factors. Damage can be caused to your car or truck tires when potholes or curbs are run over, unknown individuals slash them, and even when your vehicle is sitting for a lengthy period of time. Slow air leaks and low tire pressure can be the death of your tires, so if you see any cracking or other damage in the sidewall of your tire or notice the tread is not deep enough, it’s time to consider finding replacements.
  2. Seasons Change and So Do Tires
    Car Tires for Sale in New BerlinWhen the first night of cold weather hits your town, you might be in for a surprise in the morning. Whether or not your tires need replacing is heavily dependent on the weather in Wisconsin. The temperatures we experience in fall and winter weather cause changes in tire pressure, meaning the air inside will expand and contract. Such changes can cause your wheels to lose pressure, so if you hit a pothole or cub on your way to work, you’re more likely to face a flat tire. Then there's the snow, a real hazard for vehicles with bald tires, even with all-wheel drive.
  3. Don’t Ignore Unnatural Sounds and Shaking
    New Berlin Tire InstallationEvery month, your tires will deflate about one pound every square inch. It is highly unlikely you’ll ever lose your full tire pressure in 30 days, but keeping an eye on your inflation pressure will be key in monitoring the status of your car or truck’s wheels. If this isn’t monitored, vibrations and noises can occur while you’re out driving. If you notice these sounds coming from under your car seats, there’s a chance your tires may no longer be balanced – this can also cause your steering wheel to vibrate. Being aware of your car tires and their pressure will be key in helping you know when your tires are ready to be replaced or not. 

Never put yourself in a position where you’re only replacing tires when they’re flat. Inspecting your tires on a regular basis is an essential responsibility you must practice if you don’t want old tires interfering or interrupting your life.

What are the Effects of too much or too little Tire Pressure?

Why Correct Tire Pressure Matters

Tire Pressure GuideWhenever you inflate your tires, it’s important you’re paying attention to how much air you should be putting in. On average, tires usually take between 44 and 51 PSI nowadays. If you’re not sure how much air you should be putting in your tire, look for the marked PSI on your tire. Although it can be sometimes hard to read, the PSI is located on the side of the tire. If you can’t read it, take a wet cloth to dampen the rubber surface to help you get a better view. If you still cannot read it, look up the tire make and model for more information. You don’t want to accidentally inflate your tires under or over the recommended PSI.

Having your tires under or over inflated should never be ignored. Driving around on tires with low pressure can increase the chance of you getting a flat tire and causing damage to your vehicle. Not only can your suspension be affected, but you’ll notice your ride won’t be as smooth or silent either. Noises and vibrations can come from under your seat or steering wheel if you’re not careful to inflate your tires to the correct number.

Similarly, over inflating your tires is only going to harm your car. If you’re driving to and from work with over-inflated tires, you may be causing the unintentional uneven wear of your tires’ tread, leading to the possibility of a blow-out in conditions where your tires or wheels get too hot. In order to avoid these situations, all you have to do is adjust your tire pressure. If your car or truck’s wheels are over-inflated, simply let some air out. If it’s underinflated, put some air in, but, again, make sure you’re putting in the air in accordance with the tire’s PSI limits.

How to Correctly Use a Pressure Tire Gauge

To correctly inflate a car tire, use a pressure tire gauge. We cannot stress enough the importance of really knowing how much air you’re putting in your tire instead of just eyeballing it. New Berlin Auto Repair has seen many instances where flat or blown-out tires could have been avoided had the advised PSI been taken into consideration. To check your tire pressure, you’ll need a few items, including a tire pressure gauge, note-taking supplies or a device, and an air compressor. Once you have everything you need, there are 4 steps you’ll need to follow to easily inflate and check your tire’s air pressure:

  1. Find out what your car or truck’s recommended PSI is.
  2. Take note of each tire’s PSI, if you’ve ever had a replacement, they could be different.
  3. Use your gauge to check your tire’s air pressure. Does it need to be increased or lowered?
  4. Using your air compressor and tire gauge, fill your tire to its optimal PSI level.

To fill your tire or wheels with air, follow our instructions for each tire. Start by removing the valve cap and placing the pressure gauge on its stem, pressing down enough so the hiss of the escaping air can no longer be heard. Your pressure gauge will give you its PSI reading. Decide if your tire needs its pressure increased or decreased. If it needs to be decreased, simply detach the gauge and let some air out until the gauge stays it matches its PSI. If it needs to be increased, grab your air compressor and fill your tires until the gauge reads they are at their recommended pressure levels.

If you don’t have the time to adjust your tire’s pressure, you’re not out of options. New Berlin Auto Repair is a trusted tire shop who can help you with your car and truck tire pressure needs.

How to Test Tire Tread

Testing your tires to see how much tread is left is easy. Anyone can do it. The problem after becomes picking the right tires for your vehicle and the weather you’re going to be driving in.

What You Need:

  • Tires
  • Penny or Quarter

New tires have a tread depth of 10/32”. A tire is considered worn if the tread is 4/32”, and it’s considered bald if the tread is 2/32” or less. Pennies check for bald tires, and quarters are for worn tires.

Testing the Tread:

  • Put the penny or quarter, with the head facing down, into the tread
  • If you can see the top of the head, it's time to consider buying new tires for your vehicle

Testing your tire tread is very important. Having low tire tread puts you at risk for many more problems than just bald tires: less stopping power, less ability to handle the vehicle, collisions, etc.
