All Weather Tires
Canadians are generally well versed in the differences between all-season and winter tires. Now there is another option
- for those who want the safer option of a tire that works better in colder/wetter weather but don't have the need for heavy duty winter tires
- For those who want vehicle safety in the City but don't want to switch between to sets of tires when the temperature outside in the winter falls below 7 degrees Celsius.
- For those who can and want to drive on the same set of tires year round.
The all-weather tire provides safer driving in the City (and the rain in BC) when the temperature outside falls below 7 degrees Celsius, and it provides the mountain/snowflake necessary on the tire for colder, wetter drives up into the mountains, and can be left on the car year-round.
All Weather tires do not replace the more aggressive winter tire for deep snow and ice, However, depending on your circumstance, All-weather tires are a good option. If you’re thinking they should come up with better names to differentiate the types of tire (all-season versus all-weather), trust me – you’re not the only one who’s confused. From my experience, few Canadians are aware that all-weather tires exist, or understand how they differ from all-season tires. Below are a couple of examples of All-Weather tires we carry, In order of most expensive to least expensive.
