Winter vs All Season Tires
We recommend you explore the differences of Winter and All Season Tires and consider the importance to swapping your tires for the Winter months. Switching to winter tires for the winter months will increase your traction on the icy and snowy conditions giving you better control over your vehicle. Below are more details to illustrate the differences and their importance.
- Winter tires stay flexible in temperatures below 7°C to provide the necessary traction for cold-weather driving conditions.
- They reduce braking distance on cold, wet, ice and snow-covered roads in comparison to all-season tires.
- The traction provided by winter tires enhances the performance of anti-lock braking systems (ABS), vehicle stability assist (VSA), traction control and all-wheel drive in winter conditions.
- Industry data shows that in cold weather, a vehicle equipped with winter tires has approximately a 40% less chance of being involved in a collision versus one equipped with all-season tires.
- All-season tires are designed to provide traction and durability in a wide variety of seasonal road conditions. However, they cannot provide the same levels of traction in winter conditions as a proper winter tire.
- They are best suited for use in temperatures above 7°C.
