Winter Tires vs. Seasonal Tires
Seasonal tires are designed to be used in warm weather. They are more durable than winter tires at temperatures above 7 degrees Centigrade but lose durability and flexibility below that temperature. These tires offer good grip, handling, and stopping distance on wet and dry roads. Because of their smoother surface, they have less traction than winter tires but better gas mileage.
Winter tires are more flexible and durable than seasonal tires in temperatures below 7 degrees. They have deep treads to grip the road better, which is essential for safety when driving on ice and offers improved manoeuvrability when driving on snow due to the price of gas mileage and durability under warm conditions.
Tire Changeover vs. Tire Swap
Because of the differences noted above, it's essential to change your tires to drive on the right tires for the season. You have two options for your winter tire change: tire change or tire swap.
Our Tire service department takes your seasonal tires off your wheels in a winter tire change and puts your winter tires on. This service is cheaper in the short term since it requires two sets of tires but only one set of wheels.
In a tire swap, you have a separate set of wheels for your seasonal and winter tires. It is initially more expensive because you have to purchase two sets of wheels, but it pays off in the long run.
When to Switch Tires
Canada's weather can be unpredictable. You don't want to wait too late in the Spring to switch because that will hurt your gas mileage and cause undue wear on your winter tires. But for safety, it's best to be sure that the iciest days are past.
Experts recommend that you wait to switch tires until there is no more risk of snow or frost and the average daily high has been above 7 degrees for ten consecutive days.
