The best snow tires for a Toyota Camry offer traction in snow and ice—but many brands and options are available.
The first step is to measure your tires carefully. Camry’s may have different tire sizes, depending on model year and trim. You need to buy snow tires that work for your vehicle.
Now, you need to consider the driving conditions you are likely to face. Snow tires are different from ice tires. In some climates, all-weather tires can get you through a light winter.
Here are a few options for snow tires for a Toyota Camry:
  • Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT: WRT means Winter Reactive Technology. These tires can help your sedan with traction on icy, snowy, and slushy roads. You can have studs installed on this model, but studs may not be allowed in some areas.
  • Firestone Winterforce 2: These are slightly cheaper than the Goodyear tires. If you want traction on snow and ice, these are a good choice. Just be aware that you might experience additional road noise during dry winter conditions, which some drivers find annoying.
BFGoodrich, Michelin, and Yokohama also produce excellent snow tires that will work on your Camry. Ultimately, it’s about finding a tire that fits your tire size, fits your budget, and fits your local road conditions.
Remember to think about where you’ll store the winter tires in the off-season! If you’re new to winter driving, you might want to consider getting roadside assistance so you can call for help if you get stuck.
