Why Winter Tires?
Winter tires are specifically engineered with rubber compounds that keeptheir elasticity in colder temperatures and advance tread designs that gripbetter in dry, wet, icy and snowy conditions.
Here is a summary of tire types commonly used in Canada:
Winter: Strongly recommended for all road conditions when temperatures fall below 7ºC. The softer rubber compounds and deeper tread patternscombine to give winter tires the most traction possible across ice- and snowcovered roads.
All Season: These tires are optimized for the best all-around performance in the widest variety of weather conditions. When temperatures are cool, allseason tires offer better performance than summer tires; when the mercury rises into double digits, they perform better than winter tires.
Summer: Engineered for superior performance at temperatures above7ºC, summer tires provide excellent grip on dry pavement and displace water with surprising efficiency in the wet.
