Here are the answers to some tire-related questions that you ask us. If you have more questions, feel free to call us or drop in, and we’ll be happy to help you!
What kind of vehicles should use all-season tires?
All vehicles should use all-season tires, be it a Toyota or a light truck. These tires help to make driving in wet and dry conditions easy. All-season tires generally have low road noise, great traction and are long-lasting and durable. They are also available in a wide range of styles and sizes for all kinds of vehicles including sedans, minivans, and SUVs.
Where do you need to go to buy all-season tires?
We always recommend that you buy your tires from a licensed dealer.
Do you need to change all four tires into all-season tires?
Yes, we advise that all four tires be the same make, model, and design.
Can you drive winter tires in the summer?
Tempting as it might be to leave your winter tires on for the summer, our tire specialists strongly advise against this practice. Driving with winter tires in summer can increase stopping distances, making it difficult to manoeuver the vehicle, and also increase the risk of hydroplaning on wet pavement.
Keeping your winter tires on during summer does not just make driving difficult; it’s also dangerous. It increases the risk of a blowout because the rubber compound in winter tires isn’t designed to dispel heat. Equally important, if you continue to use winter tires in summer, your vehicle will need more fuel. This is not good for your pocket or the environment.
