All Weather Tires In Canada: Stay Safe Through Unpredictable Winters

If you want optimal performance through Canada’s unpredictable winters—and you want to save money all year-round—choose all-weather tires for your vehicle.

Read on to learn more about what makes all-weather tires the best choice during the springtime thaw, and find out how they can save you hundreds of dollars every year, or contact your local TIRECRAFT to start a free consultation straight away.

Save Money And Stay Safe During The Thaw With All-Weather Tires

As of March 20th, spring is here, but most of Ontario will still need a few weeks to thaw out. That means we’ve reached that unpredictable point where temperatures turn from frigid cold to sweater weather in the blink of an eye, and most tires’ performance see-saws with it.

Winter tires will keep you safe on slushy and snowy days, but their performance drops off as soon as temperatures exceed 7°C. Inversely, while many all-season tires come with mud and snow capabilities, their performance dips on cold days, as their rubber compounds start to harden and become less responsive below 7°C.

With weekly forecasts like these, you can see the problem:

All Weather Tires in Canada: Stay Safe Through Unpredictable Winters

Only all-weather tires offer a consistent driving experience in these unpredictable conditions. They’re designed with special rubber compounds that stay flexible above and below the standard 7°C threshold, plus:

  • Variable tread design, with greater sipe density on the inside treads to grip in snow and ice, and lower sipe density on the outside treads to add traction on wet and dry roads
  • Snow claws and slush grooves for increased traction throughout the spring thaw
  • Multi-wave sipes to provide smoother rides, improved braking capabilities, and even wear on wet, dry, or icy roads

What’s more, because they work year-round, all-weather tires save you a lot of money. Not only do all-weather tires halve your annual tire expenses upfront, since you only need one set, but they also save you hundreds in service fees over the long-term, eliminating the need for seasonal changeovers and storage.
