The Importance of Switching Back to All-Seasons or Summer Tires
Winter tires are essential for driving during Ontario’s frigid and challenging winters. When snow, slush, and ice accumulate on the ground, there is no better option than winter tires for keeping your vehicle, yourself, and others around you from getting damaged or injured from slipping and sliding on the road. However, winter tires are specifically made for cold and freezing temperatures. Once the temperature rises above seven degrees Celsius, your winter tires can wear out quicker and decrease fuel economy. Since winter tires are specifically made with a rubber compound to grip the road better, the hot surface can cause increased traction, leading to quicker tire wear and tear. This can lead to you needing winter tires much earlier than necessary, which can be costly.
