Its Time for Winter Tires

Even though we are still bare & dry here in Medicine Hat (how long will this hold up???!!) we figure it is getting to be that time a year again when the roads start becoming a little bit more slippery. One of the most important (and most overlooked) aspects of your cars ability to perform in winter is the proper tires. Did you know that below 7 degrees Celsius, all-season tires see a measurable loss in traction and control? That’s right, at 7 degrees! Most people (myself included) think winter tires are only useful whens its really cold and really icy, but thats not the case. Winter tires have a special compound in the rubber that hardens when the temperature reaches 7 degrees, creating more optimal conditions for your driving.

Featuring a combination of specialized tread designs and compounds to provide effective traction in cold, snowy conditions, winter tires are the safest tires for Canadian winters. Marked with the pictograph of a peaked mountain with a snowflake, this symbol means your tires will meet the specific snow traction performance requirements – designed specifically for cold, snowy, icy and slippery driving. These tires are also designed for improved traction on cold, dry road surfaces.

You can spot an all-season tire by the M+S (Mud + Snow) marking on the sidewall . All-season tires do provide safe all-weather performance. But remember, in severe winter snow conditions, they are not the safest choice.

Good Advice for Canadian Winter Drivers:

  • Install Four Winter Tires.
  • Do not mix tires: differenttread patterns, size, construction can compromise vehicle performance and safety.
  • Check your tires: worn treads have less traction on all surfaces, especially on ice and snow.
  • Monitor tire pressure: in colder weather, the pressure in your tires drops. This affects safety and fuel consumption, so check your tires often.

The performance of your vehicle’s tires is directly related to the temperature outside. As the temperature drops, even the best summer tires will fail to respond road conditions. All-season tires , while designed for all types of weather, will not perform as well in ice and cold.

As a rule, whenever the average outdoor temperature falls below or climbs above 7 degrees Celsius (19.4 degrees F), your tires will be affected. As the temperature drops, non-winter tires loose elasticity and the grip they have on the road. That’s why the best tires to have when the temperature drops are winter tires. Conversely, winter tires will deteriorate faster in hotter temperatures.
