If you’re shopping for winter tires for your car, truck or van, it’s important to know the difference between the various types that are available on the market. The team at Johnson Sewell Lincoln is always ready to advise you on tires, and we’ll gladly answer all your questions the next time you bring your vehicle in for service.

Tires that incorporate small, protruding metal studs are very effective at providing traction on ice- and snow-covered roadways. Unfortunately, these tires are also highly destructive to concrete and asphalt surfaces, and some states and municipalities have restricted their use or outlawed them altogether.

Many tire manufacturers offer non-studded tires that are designed to deliver similar results to studded tires without the use of damaging metal pieces. These types of tires have deep grooves and unique tread patterns that hold onto the road’s surface for safer driving in difficult winter weather.
