The term "winter tires" instead of "snow tires" is used today because these tires are designed to work in all winter conditions, not just snow. The biggest difference between a winter tire and an all season tire is the tire compound. Winter tires are made from rubber compounds that stay pliable below 40 degrees to provide better grip even on dry roads. All Season compounds get hard in cold weather negatively effecting the traction between the road and your tires. Also, winter tires have tread patterns that are designed to grip on ice, and expel the slush and snow, giving them improved braking and steering, even in extreme conditions.
Enables first class winter grip as well as more precise and comfortable handling. The computer optimized
sipes or grooves and cuts of the symmetrical tread pattern work optimally in varying weather on ice,
bare road alike.

Strategically angled tread blocks with serrated winter sipes: Provides excellent traction and braking
capability in all directions on snow and ice.
Cooper's Snow Groove II design locks snow into the tread, capitalizing on the higher traction
characteristics of 'snow on snow' grip.
