All Season Tires

Give your vehicle the all-around support it needs with all season tires.

All Season Tires in Canada

The term “all season tires” was first used in the late 1970s by tire manufacturers to describe tires that can perform adequately in all seasons. However, these tires will never perform better than tires designed for one season. With all season tires, manufacturers have traded off some wet weather grip in order to provide some mobility in the colder winter months.

Manufacturer Differences

It’s important to understand tire manufacturers make their own safety and performance assessments, and those assessments and criteria are far from uniform amongst companies. Be sure to ask us at your local TIRECRAFT which manufacturer and model will be best for your vehicle and local climate – don’t rely solely on online reviews.

Available All Season Tire Options

Since their introduction, all season tires have evolved into two classes to meet today’s car and driver needs:Michelin

  • Passenger Tires – These tires offer a smooth ride and long mileage for every day use
  • Touring Tires – These tires provide a quiet ride, improved handling capabilities and prove popular amongst luxury car owners and driving enthusiasts

Both passenger and touring tires come in a variety of sizes and speed ratings in order to fit the wide range of makes and models of vehicles that are available today. There are premium and budget friendly options to choose from, with many differences between each option.

All Season Tires: Safety and Efficiency

Statistics show that 49% of Canadians try to use all-season tires though Canadian winters. Unfortunately, a tire designed for use in warmer weather will not perform as safely in a cold climate and vice versa. For example, when the temperature dips below 7°C degrees, the compound used in an all season tire gets stiffer which results in longer braking distances.

Quality & Price Differences

Generally, budget-friendly tires aren’t likely to wear and last as well as higher quality options. When you replace worn tires with new tires, you’ll clearly notice a huge improvement with braking, handling, stopping, and wet traction.

Safety can also be impacted by the sticker price differences between tires. Stopping distances can be cut down substantially with premium product compared economy products, making it very important when you are purchasing tires to ask how they’ll perform on your vehicle in 2, 3 or even 4 years.
