There was every type of tire at the auto show. I really wanted to explore the difference between winter and all season.

I talked to automotive journalist, Gerry Malloy, and he explained that four winter tires are your absolute best option when tackling winter. It sounds obvious that all seasons should be good across all four seasons and winter tires are great for winter. But why is that? Well, winter tires are softer, which allows you to grip the ice or snow and also has the ability to squeeze out all the winter gunk we see on the roads. To sum it up, winter tires will give you the best traction.
Ted Lalka from Subaru agreed. He explains that winter tires are your best bet along with all wheel drive. This will prevent you from getting stuck in ice and snow as you adventure on winter roads.
The auto show was tons of fun. Here are some of the displays I snapped.
Also, a big congrats to the six lucky people who won free passes from Beat the Traffic!
I’ll be at the auto show again Saturday February 22, hope to see you there.
