How Winter Tires Keep You Safer

Winter driving season is upon us and with it, all of the dangerous snow and icy road conditions. As long as your tires are fairly new, everything should be okay, right? If you have all-season tires, you may want to consider getting snow tires to battle the worst of winter in our climate in Oakville.

All-season tires are fine for moderate winter driving conditions, but when it comes to the heavy stuff, you'll end up having problems. They won't give you the grip on the road and sharp handling that you need to drive safely.

Winter tires, on the other hand, are engineered for winter conditions as they are made of sturdier rubber and have tread depth and patterns that will grip the road better in snowy conditions. They also have biting edges and high sipe densities, which help keep you from slipping on icy surfaces.
