If you want to stay safe on the road when there is a snowstorm, you need a safe car and high quality winter tires and you need to drive cautiously. Just having a safe car is not enough. The high quality winter tires will give you the necessary grip on wintry surfaces. If you don’t have winter tires on your car, you don’t get any real grip on slippery surfaces. Tires that are not designed for winter use are not designed to give you grip during the cold winter season. They are designed to work on dry and wet summer roads and can handle occasional rain, not snow and ice.
