Are snow (or winter) tires better for 4x4s and light trucks?
The answer is yes, snow tires are a good strategy for trucks that contend with many months of snow, according to motortrend.com.
Tires are the one piece of equipment that retain contact with the road. As such, which tire you choose to put on your vehicle requires special care and choosing for everyone’s safety. But, are snow – or winter – tires better for 4x4s and light trucks?
Snow/winter tires are designed for on-road use. They feature “a soft rubber compound with numerous sipes across the tread blocks.” A sipe is the smallest slit in the tread and they are designed, motortrend.com says, to “control block stiffness, noise, heat buildup, and water evacuation.” When the tires move, they expand and pack with snow, which increases grip. They are best designed to use when the temperature is below 45F degrees.
But, are they the best for you? Well, that depends on how much winter driving you intend to do. It also depends on whether you plan to stay on road or head off road a great deal. Your final decision should depend on a conversation with an expert in 4x4s and light trucks. You can find such an expert at Trick Trucks on Betts Pond Road in Millsboro.
