When you're looking to buy new tires, all of the different types of tires out there can be confusing. Do you need all-season, performance tires, off-roading tires, or winter tires.  Well, there is no one tire solution. Which tires you need depends on your climate, what kind of vehicle you drive, and where you plan on taking it. Here's a short list breaking down the different types of tires to help you determine which tires are right for you:

All-Season Tires

All-season tires are the basic, built to work well all through the year, from hot weather in summer to frigid cold in winter. All-season tires do best in places that don't get heavy snow, as they start to lose traction, but these are the most affordable tire option since you don't have to change them out with the seasons

Winter Tires

Winter tires, also called snow tires, are in their element when it comes to the elements. Their tread is designed to grip onto ice and snow in ways all-season and performance tires can't. These are great for Jamestown winters. 

Performance Tires

Performance tires are for those who have a need for speed. Performance tires have better handling in both wet and dry conditions. These sport tires have steering precision and handling, helping you to take a hard corner. These are recommended only during our Jamestown summer months since they are not the best on snowy ground.

Off-Roading Tires/All-Terrain Tires

These tires are good at keeping their grip on rough terrain such as snow and deep mud. All-terrain tires are built to offer traction both on and off the road, allowing you to take both the highway and the trails. No matter where your day takes you, you can rest assured that off-roading tires will get you there.
