Not sure which type of tire you should get? Here's an overview of some of the most common tire types:

    All-Season Tires

    All-season tires are the standard go-to when you're just looking for a set of well-rounded tires that can handle most weather and road conditions well. While they don't excel during any one season, they're capable year-round and are excellent picks for normal everyday driving in the West Bend area. Their tread patterns are deep enough to help you handle wet and snowy roads better than summer tires, but they're not as capable in winter as winter tires.

    Winter Tires

    Winter tires are specifically designed to handle winter weather. That means that they're meant to tackle snowy, slippery roads as well as frigid temperatures. How? Winter tires are made of a softer rubber compound that makes them more flexible in cold weather, making it easier for them to gain traction. Additionally, they have unique tread patterns that are wider and deeper than those typically found on other tire types, making them exceptionally adept at displacing snow and slush to help you get more grip on the road.

    Performance All-Season Tires

    Performance all-season tires are great for vehicles that are higher-horsepower and more performance-oriented. They're still capable in most conditions, though they sacrifice some winter capability in favor of better acceleration and braking on dry and wet roads. Performance all-season tires differ from standard all-season tires in that they're wider and have shorter sidewalls, which contributes to enhanced performance.

    Summer Tires

    Summer tires are designed to deliver better grip on warm, dry pavement. They're ideal for summer cruising, but they're not very effective during the colder months. Summer tires are great for higher-performance cars, but we recommend switching them out when winter hits in the Mequon and Menomonee Falls areas. Summer tires are less flexible in low temperatures and they don't have the right tread patterns to make them useful in winter.

    All-Terrain Tires

    If you often find yourself wandering off the beaten path in the Hartford area, all-terrain tires are must-have items. They're capable on the pavement, though you might notice a bit more tire noise than you would with all-season tires. Where all-terrain tires excel, however, is off-road. Light to moderate off-roading is a cinch thanks to trail-conquering trail patterns, so we highly recommend exploring all-terrain tires if you spend a lot of time driving sans pavement around Germantown.
