Subaru Outback (BR): Winter (snow) tires

Winter tires are best suited for driving on snow-covered and icy roads. However winter tires do not perform as well as summer tires and all season tires on roads other than snow-covered and icy roads.

One of the key differences in winter tires is the tread pattern, which typically includes deeper grooves, sipes (small slits), and unique tread designs that help enhance grip on snow and ice-covered surfaces. The rubber compounds used in winter tires are also formulated to remain flexible in cold temperatures, allowing the tire to maintain better contact with the road and improve traction.

Winter tires are designed to excel in a range of winter driving conditions, including snowy roads, icy patches, and slushy surfaces. They can significantly reduce stopping distances and improve overall vehicle control, enhancing safety during winter driving.

It's important to note that winter tires are not just for areas with heavy snowfall but are beneficial in any region where temperatures regularly drop below 45°F (7°C) during the winter months. Even on dry or wet cold roads, winter tires can provide better grip and handling compared to all-season tires.

When using winter tires, it's essential to install a complete set of four tires rather than mixing them with other tire types. This ensures balanced performance and optimal traction on all four wheels. Additionally, maintaining the recommended tire pressure and periodically checking the tread depth are crucial for maximizing the effectiveness of winter tires.
