Winter Tires

Winter tires are designed for better traction in extreme cold, and on icy, snowy, or slushy roads. This is achieved through the fact that the rubber is able to remain softer thus making it more flexible and allowing the tire to conform to the road better in cold conditions. They also have deeper treads that are specially designed for improved traction in snow and/or icy conditions as well as for the evacuation of water through the tread to help prevent hydroplaning on wet slushy roads. The rubber and construction materials are also specially designed for improved starting, stopping and cornering in cold temperatures.

When to put winter tires on

It is advised to have winter tires installed once the temperature drops below 7°C. In simpler terms, if you can see your breath, it is time to get your winter tires on!

Reasons not to use winter tires during other seasons

Sometimes people either forget to take off their winter tires once winter is over or do not see the need for taking them off. It is vital to get them switched out once winter is over as due to the tread rubber being softer and more flexible they will wear out faster in warmer temperatures. The softness of the treads also decreases handling performance. So the bottom line being if you keep your winter tires on after winter has passed, they will wear out and need to be replaced sooner. The cost of replacing the tires would be more than having them removed and switched out.

 

 

All- Season tires

An all-season tire provides suitable performance in wet and dry conditions. The treads are designed to provide excellent traction in dry conditions and repel water in wet conditions. They have moderate tread depths and rubber compounds that are engineered to provide longer tread life.

All-season tires are capable of providing traction in winter, but do not provide the best traction for your safety and increase your vehicles stopping distance drastically. If you do own all season tires, it is recommended you also invest in winter tires as it will extend the life span of your all-season tires as well as provide you with peace of mind.

 

 

All weather tires

All weather tires as the name implies provides fair grip in all weather conditions. It is still recommended to use winter tires in tough winter conditions. They maintain good handling in both cold and warm temperatures as the treads are not as soft as winter tires.

Your owner’s manual or the label usually found in the driver’s door opening and sometimes inside the glove box door will specify the correct size of tire for your vehicle.In the example below, the correct load and speed rating for this 2006 MX-5 is 84W. The load and speed rating indicate the ability of the tire to carry a load and dissipate heat when properly inflated. The load and speed ratings on replacement tires should only meet or exceed the recommended load and speed ratings for your vehicle.
