When to Put On Snow Tires in Chicago

Mercedes-Benz Driving Through Snow

During Chicago’s unforgiving winters, it pays to have a good set of winter tires. When do you put on snow tires in Chicago? Any time around or after Thanksgiving is best. Snow tires can be rough on asphalt and tend to stifle handling, but they aren’t meant to boost the performance of your vehicle; they’re meant to keep you safe in icy driving conditions. Make “install winter tires” part of your winter vehicle checklist, and you’re sure to benefit from the following:

  • Stronger road grip in snowy conditions
  • Reliable braking
  • A break for your vehicle’s all season tires
  • Greater tire replacement and service savings down the road

Winter Tires vs. All Season

So, what separates winter tires from all season? All season tires are designed for a composed ride and fuel-efficiency; they can perform in all sorts of conditions, but do best in spring and summer. Winter tires, however, are intended primarily for snowy weather, and include these unique qualities:

  • Rigid yet flexible tread rubber for better traction
  • Deep tread depths to prevent snow accumulation
  • More biting edges for improved grip in icy conditions
