It comes as no surprise that winter tires are recommended for the cold and snowy conditions of winter. Winter tires are made of a soft rubber compound that maintains its grip below 7℃. They also have a tread pattern that is better suited for snow, ice and slush than all-seasons.
All-season tires should really be called “three-seasons”. That’s because when the temperature falls below 7℃, the rubber compound in all-season tires dramatically hardens. This leads to a decrease in traction and control.
Toyota winter tires are developed to provide you with the performance and safety you need in winter driving. For more information, visit our Winter Tires FAQs.
Thanks to a budget initiative passed in Ontario, provincial drivers can receive insurance discounts for having and using winter tires. These discounts can range from 3-5%. Check with your insurance provider to find out the exact discount.
Winter tires get better traction than all-seasons in weather below 7℃. This prevents skidding on snow, ice and slush. Keep yourself and your passengers safe with winter tires, they’re a must have.
Winter Tires and All-Wheel Drive
Even with all-wheel drive, vehicles equipped with all-season tires do not perform as well as those equipped with winter tires. There is a vast difference between the two. While all-wheel drive is a great feature in an automobile, there’s no replacing a good winter tire in cold weather.
