Winter tires or all-season tires

Accessory: Winter tires or all-season tires.

Cost: Approximately $200 to $1,000 for a set of 4, depending on manufacturer and model.

If you live in an area where you expect the snow to pile up this year, winter tires may be an investment that can save you from wrestling with the road in sticky driving situations. As you begin searching through the wide range of winter tires, be sure to consider the average snowfall in your area.

Calkins says all-season tires are a good compromise for drivers who expect light-to-moderate snowfall. But if blizzards and road closings are common for you, real winter tires are your best option.

"With any tire, when it comes to winter driving, it's important to have adequate tread depth," Calkins says.
