    I always bought all-season M+S (mud and snow) tires for my pickup truck. So, are they just all-season tires with a more aggressive tread?

      Unfortunately, yes. The tread design may seem like it will work, but the rubber compound is a lot stiffer in cold weather.

    Hi Scott… Do you subscribe to minus sizing for winter tires? I’ve heard of many doing this. Merry Christmas to the family.

    • safedriver says:

      Hi Paul. Yes, minus sizing is done by many drivers. Having a thinner tire can help cut through the snow and provide better grip compared to the wider tire your vehicle generally has. Going one size smaller can also save you money as the 17 and 18 inch winter tires can become increasingly expensive.Always check with a professional tire installer before making that personal choice for your specific vehicle.

    We don’t pay enough attention to winter tyres here in the UK. In fact hardly anybody uses them. That’s one of the many reasons the entire country grinds to a halt at the first sign of snow. Ha. Luckily there hasn’t been any so far this year. Merry Christmas.

    I’m one for Winter Tyres between October and March then normal tyres the rest of the year. I’m a Michelin girl!
