“What type of driver do all-weather tires benefit most?”

Occasional Winter Drivers: These individuals drive in occasional winter weather. Although their driving conditions may not be severe or frequent enough to necessitate dedicated winter tires, it’s important to note that dedicated winter tires are always the safest option for severe winter weather.

Winter-Weather Destination Visitors: People who live near mountainous areas that do not receive harsh snow, in addition to those who frequently travel during the fall and winter seasons, can benefit from all-weather tires to ensure they have the necessary traction and safety in winter weather destinations with temperatures as low as 46 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Peace of Mind Seekers: All-weather tires provide peace of mind to anyone who wants to be prepared for surprise snowfall. With these tires, they can feel confident and covered in case of unexpected winter conditions.

By choosing all-weather tires, drivers in these categories can enjoy the convenience and safety they offer throughout the year.


“I’ve purchased the Terra Trac Cross-V tires for my vehicle in the past and was satisfied with their performance. What’s new with the Cross-V AW?”

Based on the recognition and value of the Terra Trac Cross-V name we’ve successfully established over the years we would keep the Terra Trac Cross-V name and simply add AW after to highlight the All-Weather capability.

The Terra Trac Cross-V AW is a premium highway/touring/all-weather tire engineered for peak performance in all seasons.
