Tires are the only part of the vehicle in contact with the road, so choosing a good winter tire is important for this time of year, according to Basil Cars.
A vehicle handles differently on dry, wet and icy roads, depending upon the tires on the vehicle. Basil Cars said three tire models offer great performance for wintry driving conditions:
The highly rated Michelin X-Ice XI3 offers a unique thread pattern and special composition for superior handling in slush, ice and snow. The Noklan Hakkapelitta R2, designed specifically for winter driving, offers maximum performance on slippery roadways. Its cryo crystal rubber boosts traction without the need for studded tires.
The Continental WinterContact SI also performs well on winter roads. These tires rank well for braking on ice or wet roads, as well as for overall handling and traction during wintry driving conditions.
