What are the best snow tires for a Kia Sorento?

I’m a new driver, and this is my first winter behind the wheel. I think buying decent winter tires for my SUV will make me a little less nervous. What winter tires are best for a Kia Sorento?

Winter makes for stressful driving conditions, so your nerves are understandable. If you drive cautiously and get your Sorento fitted with good winter tires, you should be fine. The best winter tire for a Kia Sorento is the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2.
What makes this tire stand out above the crowd is its use of MultiCell Technology™. With this innovation, the Blizzak DMV2 traps snow and ice between the treads—providing increased traction on slippery winter roads.
There are other great options for the Sorento, including:
  • Falken Espia EPZ II
  • Cooper Discoverer True North
  • Continental VikingContact 7
You might be able to get through the winter with an all-season tire like the Accelera Omikron H/T or the BFGoodrich Advantage Control, but you could be missing out on a car insurance discount by opting for an all-season tire.
While you’re getting your Sorento ready for winter, make sure that your car insurance is up to date. Slippery conditions are a recipe for accidents, so having collision and comprehensive coverage could save you a lot of headaches as you plow through your fist winter behind the wheel.
