Winter tires provide a valuable benefit to drivers traveling around during the cold season. Switching the tires out for all-season ones might not be a priority for some car owners, though.

Winter tires feature a design intended to improve traction in hazardous conditions. The tread depth and design intend to tackle snow and ice, not “normal” conditions or warmer weather. Driving on these tires from winter through spring and summer may wear them down much faster. Once worn, they require replacing. Replacing the tires ahead of schedule means added costs.
