Tires are round, ring-shaped pieces of rubber than encase the wheel’s rim on a car. Their shape and texture allow them to provide traction, which makes it easier to start and stop a vehicle. Although tires come in hundreds of styles and sizes, they mostly fall into three categories. These are all-season, summer, and winter tires. The different types are designed with the special needs of each season in mind.
