Winter tires versus all-season tires.

What is the difference between winter tires and all-season tires?

  • On dry pavement, with temperatures just below freezing, the stopping distance for vehicles equipped with all-season tires is 30% longer than for vehicles with winter tires.
  • Winter tires also have better traction on a snowy surface at temperatures of -40°C than all-season tires have at +4°C. (Mahler 2008a)
  • Even on dry pavement, the overall performance of an all-season tire declines as the temperature becomes colder. (Fountain Tire 2011)

  • Proper wheel alignment will help your tires achieve maximum performance while ensuring they last longer on your Audi.
  • With a wheel alignment, a vehicle’s suspension is adjusted so the tires are synced together with the vehicle to ensure they have proper traction with the road.
  • Our Audi dealers have the expertise and equipment to perform your Audi’s wheel adjustment to manufacturer’s specifications.
