Do you really need winter tires? Wont all season radial tires work at winter time? Are you ready for winter? It is time to check your winter tires. It can be done with a Canadian Toonie ($2 coin). If the coin's silver edge is covered only by the tire's thread, if the tire fallen or worn down below 4 mm, then you should contact us.
We hope you had a great summer, enjoyed the warm weather and your favourite outdoor past time. However as always as this year too, the season is changing. We hope at the end of fall you will be ready for winter weather. We thought it's time for some pre winter driving tips so you can get thru those nasty winter storms and blizzards.
Getting good mechanical grip and traction is very important in any driving condition. It is even more important when the roads are iced and ice covered with snow. Sometimes it is not easy to make emergency turns or stops and it is even harder on winter roads.
Have you considered winter tires for your vehicle? We hope you did. I can tell you from experience there is no all season (we call them no season) tire can give you confidence, peace of mind when driving in full Canadian winter weather. Please consider it, winter tires are made, engineered to stay soft to the touch in the cold and has deeper profiles for the snow and slush. The regular tires get softer in the heat. When the tire is warmer it will give you more grip, more traction. If the temperature goes down to minus, your summer tire can't heat up, your car will have less grip.
The all season tires are between the two. They will work better than the high speed summer radials and they definitely will give some traction in winter road conditions, but not enough to be safe in our winter. Those tires weren't designed for our Canadian winter. May we say your life and your families life is worth more than a set of tires, don't you think so?!
Some people couldn't be bothered: Where am I going to store it, etc. etc. There is no reason not to replace your regular tires. Please ask yourself the question do you wear the same shoes and clothes in the winter and summer? You don't have to buy the most expensive ultra high performance winter rubber. There are plenty of excellent winter tires available for very reasonable prices.
