Why do I need winter tires?
Here in Southern Ontario, we may not have the harshest winters in Canada, but the humid and fluctuating weather of the Great Lakes region makes for some intense winter conditions. And the misleadingly-named “All-Season” tires can leave many people wondering why should I buy snow tires when these tires are meant for year-round driving.
When the mercury dips below 7 degrees Celsius, it’s time to switch out your all-season or summer tires for the traction and safe braking of winter tires. Below this temperature, tires meant for warmer weather driving conditions begin to stiffen and harden up, reducing their handling and braking performance, especially on slick, icy roads. Snow tires, on the other hand, are made from rubber compounds that remain soft and flexible, maintaining the optimal traction for your vehicle. A dozen feet might not seem like much of an improvement, but it is the difference between stopping at your mark and sliding into an icy intersection.
Remember, it’s not just your own safety that you put into jeopardy when you drive with the wrong seasonal tires, but that of everyone else on the road.
