Besides, are smaller tires better in the snow?
A smaller and narrower tire with a higher profile has better traction in deep snow and slush and is much less likely to aquaplane on the ice and in the rain. Furthermore, the smaller tire cuts through snow more effectively because the weight of the car is pressing on a more focused set of contact patches.
what size tire is best for snow? A narrower tire does a better job in snow . As a rule of thumb, for winter tires you can reduce the width 10mm, increase the aspect ratio 10 percentage points, and get a wheel one inch smaller — in this case 215/60R16.
People also ask, why are low profile tires bad in snow?
Talking about snow and ice grip, most low -profiles are also useless due to the lack of special compounds and tread depth. Winter tires bite into snow with their specially designed grooves and grips, which most sporty tires can't do. Wet roads may be not much of a problem if your tires have directional tread pattern.
Are 20 inch tires good in the snow?
