- Winter Studded
This studded winter tire contains a soft rubber compound and multiple permanent studs. As the temperature drops, the treads stiffen to provide optimal grip while the studs maintain maximum traction on slick surfaces, such as ice or packed snow. Treads that are too stiff in cold weather are more likely to slip and treads that are too soft will wear quicker. In addition, this tire has sipes and grooves that increase snow traction and allow the tread blocks to flex while braking.
