All-season tires handle many different weather conditions, but they aren't designed for extreme one. In some areas, the winter brings enormous amounts of snow. Roads become slick and icy, which presents accident risks. Safer driving become critical on these roads, and so might the right tires.

The tread on winter tires represents a much different design than an all-season tire. Treads help eliminate water under a tire, but all-seasons tires lack a design for wet and cold winter conditions. Winter tires also have a biting aspect in the design. Such a design helps with the grip on the road.

Driving on hot summer roads with winter tires could lead to trouble. Hot roads affect rubber, and winter tires feature a design not intended for hot surfaces. Going back to all-season or summer tires seems like the plan when the temperature goes up.
