Our team here at Kia of Fargo wants to help you stay safe when you're behind the wheel. Are you shopping for winter tires in Fargo, ND? If so, knowing the difference between each type can help you make the right choice for your needs.

Studdable snow and ice tires come equipped with metal studs that improve traction on icy terrain. The metal studs are removable and cause additional noise when they're in use. Studdable tires can damage road surfaces, so they're not allowed in some areas. In some states, studdable snow and ice tires are only permitted for use during the winter.

Studless tires are a good option because they provide you with outstanding traction but still have decent open-road capability. Many drivers choose studless tires because they are a better option than studded tires. There are also performance winter and snow tires. Performance tires are made to handle snow-covered roads and higher speeds.
