Why Do I Need Winter Tires?

Think Winter Tires are only needed for those crazy Canadian blizzards, Eh?

Think again.

According to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation the magic number is +7C. When the temperature drops to +7C the rubber of non-winter tires begins to harden causing the tires to have less traction. Winter tires stay soft in cold weather conditions and prevent you from being victim to slippery road conditions caused by cold weather.  So why are we encouraging customers to switch to their winter tires early? Because we can reach a low of +7C as early as October!
