Drivers in the snow belt know that dedicated winter/snow tires can provide superior grip over regular all-season tires. Winter/snow tires can make the difference between getting to work safely or staying home. Drivers are aided by their blocky tread patterns and rubber compound that remain pliable in below-freezing temperatures. But how do you know which winter/snow tire is better than another? The answer is simple: Combine Consumer Reports’ extensive test results with satisfaction insights from our members.
Consumer Reports conducts extensive winter/snow tire testing at our Auto Test Center and regional ski mountains, and even does brake testing on the controlled surface of a local ice skating rink.
