 Winter tires have flexible rubber for better grip without getting stiff! Tread patterns will be deep and reduce buildup for better road grip action. It gets rid of slush, snow, and channels water better. Teeth are the biting edge which digs into the snow. With an extra grip on an icy road for more control.

3. Who gets the best scores for total performance, all-season or winter tires.
Both are for specific conditions, and neither is better, except all-around is best for most not all seasons. In winter, the snow tires get top billing. Mix and match is an option, but better get a dedicated set!
