Why do I need Winter Tires?
There is no question that having winter tires on your vehicle makes it safer to be on the road when temperatures drop. Winter tires are the only tires designed to perform optimally and provide traction in cold temperatures, on ice, in slush and in snow.
Once temperatures drop below 7C your all-season tires begin to lose their grip and braking distance increases in all road conditions. Also with all-season tires snow and slush will clog the treads significantly deteriorating the traction they provide. Winter tires are designed to provide grip in cold temperatures and have deep grooves for their treads to provide traction in slush and snow. Driving on all-season tires in the winter is a considerably higher risk than making sure your vehicle has winter tires on when cold weather hits.

When Should I put Winter Tires on My Vehicle?
Winter tires are designed to be used in winter months and that is really the only time they should be installed on your vehicle. Normal all-season tires begin to lose traction when temperatures dip below 7C. This means some drivers will make sure to have their winter tires on their vehicle as soon as it starts to get cold. Other drivers will follow the general rule of having them installed two weeks before snow is expected to fall. The important thing is to not be caught off guard, have your winter tires installed a week or two before you think driving conditions will worsen. This ensures you won’t be risking hitting some ice or slush while your all-season tires are still on.
It is also important to remember that winter tires will wear out quickly if driven on in summer months. They are made of softer rubber and manufactured to be used specifically in cold temperatures. Remember to have your all-seasons put back on your vehicle as soon as warm weather returns and the snow has stopped falling.
