Snow Tires For Your Car Truck & SUV

Fit a set of snow tires to get you through those late-season snowfalls that can occur between early fall and late spring.

Of course, it's not as simple as just buying a set of winter tires and throwing them on your wheels. To ensure the safety and performance of your vehicle there are a few things to consider.

One of them being:

Winter tires vs all weather tires vs all season tires?

Whats better?

If you live somewhere where temperatures can drop to less than 7°C and fair share of snow, winter tires are for you. Otherwise, an all-season tire could be the perfect choice for year round driving because it offers great performance in both winter and summer conditions.

If your passenger car is front-wheel drive and budget is your main concern, the best solution is to use a winter tire on just the front axle; this ensures that you get the most out of your tires.

Find out more below about the what and why’s of buying winter tires. We’ve included a few top rated winter tires to consider.

Why Install Snow Tires?

As with every cold season approaching, a decision for most drivers is to install winter tires. According to stats, roughly 30 - 40% of drivers don't install winter tires and that could create problems driving in the snow. If you've ever driven with snow tires versus all-season or even summer tires, you can actually feel the difference and benefits of having winter tires.

Some drivers believe all-season tires are equipped for winter and snow driving. Others feel winter tires are too expensive.

When it comes to "all-season" or “all-weather” tires, they are simply not adequate for harsh winters, perhaps all season tires will be enough if you live in Florida, but not for winters we experience in Canada.

So how much do winter tires cost? Depending on brand and size the typical cost for a winter tire ranges between $85 to $320 per tire. If your plan is to keep your vehicle for years to come, it’s a good idea to install winter rims and tires ready for each winter season. This will actually save you in the long run.

If you live or anywhere across Ontario, we suggest installing winter tires. If you live in Quebec and parts of British Columbia, winter tires are mandatory between the winter months.

Studded tires, where permitted are another option for Ontarians. Perfect for icy and hard-packed snow conditions, especially if you live or travel truly north in winter.


Benefits of Winter Tires

If you're thinking about purchasing winter tires, here's a few benefits of installing snow tires on your vehicle:

  • Collision prevention

  • Lower insurance premiums

  • Traction in the snow you can actually notice

  • Saves you on replacement tires over the long-term

  • Winter tire traction in the cold gets you an improvement of 60 feet in stopping distance @ 50 km per hour

  • Winter tires are also for the cold roads not just the snow

  • Winter tires cost less than collision repair

The best time to install winter tires is when the temperature hits 7 degrees Celsius or below - and ideally before the first snow hits the ground.
