Snow tires or Studded Tires?

The benefit of both is no chains. The studless or snow tires do not damage the road. They do not do as well in ice as a studded tire though. A studded snow tire will cause more road noise when driving. The studless snow tire is made of a softer compound which does wear out quicker. You can expect to get 2 to 3 seasons out of your studless snow tires. The studded tires are a harder compound that allows the studs to be inserted and they will last until your studs fall out – typically around 5 to 6 years. If you are just concerned about having enough traction in the winter, then a studless snow tire is what you want. If you have icy conditions, then a studded tire is the way to go. Either way, you will be safer on your adventures, and you will not have to deal with chains.
