Why Winter Tires?
The performance you love. The confidence you need.
Newer generations of winter tires are designed with a more flexible rubber compound that is less prone to stiffen in colder temperatures. Their tread is also designed to provide improved traction on wet, slushy, snowy, icy and dry cold surfaces.
(Rubber Association of Canada 2007a).
A summary of tire types.
Here is a simple rating system for tire types commonly used in Canada:
- Winter tires: Best in winter, fair in spring and fall (but tread wear increases), poor in summer
- Summer tires: Best for summer, fair in spring and fall, poor in winter
- All-season tires: Fair in spring, summer and fall, less satisfactory in colder conditions (7°C or colder) (Russell 2011)
Recognizing winter tires.
A three-peaked mountain snowflake symbol is placed on all winter tires that achieve performance-based standards. This symbol is used and recognized globally.
Winter Tires vs All-Season Tires
What is the difference between winter tires and all-season tires?
On dry pavement, with temperatures just below freezing, the stopping distance for vehicles equipped with all-season tires is 30%longer than for vehicles with winter tires.
Winter tires also have better traction on a snowy surface at temperatures of -40°C than all-season tires have at +4°C. (Mahler 2008a)
Even on dry pavement, the overall performance of an all-season tire declines as the temperature becomes colder. (Fountain Tire 2011)
