Best for Winter: All-Season Tires vs Winter Tires

The winter weather is already here in Listowel! If you have not had your winter tires put on your vehicle, then you should do so as soon as possible. You don’t think you need to change from all-season tires to winter tires? Think again! While all-season tires can handle winter weather conditions decently, they are inferior when compared to winter tires. The staff here at Stop 23 Auto can’t stress the importance of the winter tires more! Join us as we highlight why winter tires are better than all-season tires for winter driving today!

Why Winter Tires Are Better Than All-Season Tires

There are several reasons why winter tires are better for winter weather driving than all-season tires. Winter tires are much more adept at driving through snow and on icy roads. Winter tires offer superior traction compared to all-season tires. As a result, drivers experience better vehicle control and improved braking and handling. This provides an increase in the driver’s confidence and helps to prevent accidents and related injuries. If the majority of drivers in Canada equipped winter tires to their vehicles, then everyone will be able to enjoy safer roads and a much better winter driving experience.

How Many Canadians Use Winter Tires?

As of this time last year, it was estimated that about 66% of drivers throughout Canada, including 100% in Quebec where winter tires are mandated by law. Outside of Quebec, still about 60% of drivers use winter tires. Here in Ontario, we sit at 59%, which is just shy of the average outside of Quebec. If you do not currently have winter tires equipped on your vehicle, you should consider buying and equipping them as soon as you can!
