Winter tires, your winter friends!

Do not get caught out this winter with the wrong tires!

Canadians expect harsh winters, and it takes stronger and more effective tires to keep up with the demands. Some choose to stick with their ALL-SEASON tires, but it is highly recommended to switch out your tires for the winter to achieve a safer performance on the roads.

Superior materials

The colder the temperature gets, the harder standard tires become. This can lead to less responsiveness and cause additional damage to the tires. Winter tires are formulated to handle temperatures as low as -30 C. Regular tires are designed to handle temperatures only as low as 7 C, that is a huge difference!

Improved breaking

The biggest impact can be seen just by stepping on the breaks! Winter tires have up to 30% better breaking distances. This can mean the difference between stopping at the light and sliding too far! Snow and ice cause havoc on the normal breaking power of your vehicle, with winter tires, it can be restored!

Skidding resistance

Every Canadian has heard of black ice, it is a thing we are trained to watch out for. Accidents will still happen, but winter tires can offer a superior hold on the road and limit even these moments!

Ultimate winter traction

Ice and snow are a deadly combination. That is why winter tires are designed to effectively “bite” into them, creating traction where regular tires will skid. This can be an absolute lifesaver on the roads.

Snow maneuverability

Snow is a constant struggle for regular tires, the lack of traction causes slowed reactions. With winter tires, the turns will feel just right, allowing you to maintain control.

For those vehicles that cannot handle the winter, it is best to get them off the road. Here are the most common types of winter vehicle storage.
