What are the best snow tires for a Toyota Prius?

I’ll be moving soon to an area that gets a lot of snow in the winter, and this will be the first time I’ve driven in wintry conditions. I have a Toyota Prius, and I’ve heard that they’re not great when it comes to driving in snow. So, it looks like it's time for new tires! What is the best kind of snow tire for a Toyota Prius?

Congratulations on your move—this sounds like an exciting change!
The best snow tires for a Toyota Prius should be made of rubber designed for cold temperatures and have a deep, zig-zagging tread pattern.
While it’s true that an unequipped Prius isn’t the best in the snow, most sources agree that if you get a good set of snow tires, you’ll be just fine. Snow tires allow for extra traction in cold and icy conditions and are a must-have if you live in an area where winters mean a lot of snow!
Driving in the snow takes some getting used to, but the more you do it, the more comfortable you’ll get. Practice makes perfect—you got this!
