Can I leave winter tires on all year?

You can leave your winter tires on all year, but it’s not a good idea. Winter tires tend to be noisier; they are also made with softer compounds which means they will wear out faster, especially in warm weather. Wear is critical because winter tires rely on their deep tread to dig into snow and ice. As soon as the snow is gone for good, remove your snow tires and reinstall your all-season tires.
