All-season tires are designed to function in varied but general weather conditions: dry roads and rain and in warmer temperatures. They are not engineered for specific weather conditions. If tires were vehicles, an all season would be a family sedan while a winter tire would be a Hummer. You can get through a blizzard with massive snow in a sedan possibly but it would be a lot safer to do it in a Hummer. It’s the same way with tires. You may make it through on all season tires but you will have much better results and you will be much safer with a good snow tire.
Designed for extreme off-road conditions and little else, rock crawling and mud terrain truck tires employ aggressive tread designs that extend to the sidewalls, giant lugs with deep voids, and reinforced sidewall construction to create tires that will grip any surface and remain durable in the process. Extreme terrain off road tires typically carry many of the same features, and consequently many mud terrain tires make excellent rock crawling tires, and vice versa. Extreme terrain off road tires come in either radial or bias ply, but do their job best in a low air pressure bias ply, which allows the tread to conform to surfaces for increased traction. Yet despite that extreme terrain off road tires are composed of durable, cut and puncture resistant compounds, they usually do not produce very much mileage when driven on the street, particularly at high speeds. In addition, due to the wild tread designs and huge lugs, extreme terrain tires can cause a bumpy ride and are quite noisy on the road.
The first step is to know why you need new tires. The reality is that all tires wear out eventually. Obviously if there is a huge hole in your tire, you need a new one. The rule is that if there is a puncture that is more than a quarter inch deep, you need to replace that tire. Some punctures are fixable, so make sure they are not trying to pull one over on you for more money. They will gladly show you where the problem is so that you can make a decision together. Be involved so that you can be sure of your decision.
