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.
