ALL-SEASON TIRES

These are suited for almost any condition, whether you’re driving on dry, wet, or snowy roads. These come standard on most cars that are sold in the U.S.​ 

LOW PROFILE TIRES

With a short sidewall and wide tread, these are great for handling and performance on pavement. The wider tread gives you more stability when turning corners.

PERFORMANCE TIRES

These are high in maneuverability and traction on the road and are the best if you’re driving a sports or performance car.

ALL-TERRAIN TIRES

Mostly found on SUVs and trucks, these have added grip and open-tread style like an off-road tire, but have the traction of a road tire so it’s suitable for most any road surface.​ 

OFF ROAD TIRES

If you have to go through rock, gravel, sand, or mud, these can do it. These tires have maximum traction and reinforced sidewalls to handle just about anything rougher than pavement.​ 

SNOW/WINTER TIRES

These have a short sidewall and wide tread, making them ideal for handling and performance. Many people like the look of these, but the cost of having extra traction is a harsher ride and higher risk of tire failure.

MUD TIRES

If you have to go through rock, gravel, sand, or mud, these can do it. These tires have maximum traction and reinforced sidewalls to handle just about anything rougher than pavement.​ 

SUV TIRES

These are a step above all-season in that they are specifically made to handle snow with a large amount of grooves that grip the road when it’s snowy or icy.

TRUCK TIRES

Specifically for trucks, many brands make tires that give you smooth handling and good traction.​
