The best snow tires for a Toyota Corolla provide traction in your local winter conditions—Bridgestone Blizzak is a popular manufacturer of snow tires that will fit your Corolla.
The first thing you need to decide is whether your daughter needs snow tires, ice tires, or all-weather tires. If she primarily drives in the city, then snow tires might be a better choice. If she mostly drives on the highway, then ice tires might be more appropriate.
Where does your daughter live? If her local climate involves a short cold season and lots of slush, you’ll want to buy tires with slush channels to provide traction in muddy conditions. But if she lives in a place with months of snow on the ground, she’ll need more serious tires.
Here are two options for snow tires for a Toyota Corolla:
- Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 is a popular choice for sedan owners like yourself. These tires offer superb traction in snowy and icy conditions. Blizzaks also perform well in dry winter conditions, without too much road noise. These tires are relatively affordable compared to other brands.
- Michelin X-ICE Xi3 has a long-lasting tread, so you can expect them to last for many years. These tires are not a good choice for driving in deep snow, but they will perform well in snowy and icy conditions.
Ask at your local tire shop. BFGoodrich, Goodyear, and Yokohama produce excellent snow tires as well. They might even have a local sale. Before you buy, make sure you find out the model year and trim level of your daughter’s Camry as tire sizes can vary between models.
