Winter tires

Winter Tires - Why you should have them

Tires are made differently, and specifically for the road conditions in a certain area at different times of the year. Winter tires are made to improve traction, stopping and handling. The compounds used in the rubber for winter tires allow it to:

  • remain flexible in cold weather, and
  • have better traction on ice, slush and snow.

After the temperature dips below 7°C winter tires are the safest option for Canadian winters.
