When should I swap my seasonal tires?
When you are living a cool weather climate, the rule of thumb is to have your winter tires in place when the temperature is predicted to be 7 degrees celsius and lower. Winter tires are designed to give exceptional traction when the exterior temperature dips below 7 degrees and this is the ideal temperature to have them changed over. As a general rule of thumb for putting your summer tires on, wait until you're confident the final snowfall has passed and the temperature creeps up above 7 degrees again.
How do I know when my tire tread depth is too low?
You should consider replacing your tires (especially if wet road conditions are common) when the tread reaches a depth of 5/32". Once you reach the depth of 4/32" to 3/32", it is time to replace or closely monitor your tires' wear.
What's the difference between winter and all-season tires?
Tires meant for different weather conditions are made of different tread depths and rubber compounds. All of these design features are meant to react to specific weather and road conditions. Below 7 degrees celsius, all season tires begin to lose their grip and effectiveness. Driving on winter tires in the hot summer months, on the other hand, will see them wear down quicker than summer tires, limiting their useful lifespan and costing you excess money. Not to mention, using winter tires in the summer months can make your vehicle eat more gas.
What does it mean when my Tire Pressure Monitor light comes on?
The TPM warning light comes on to indicate that one or more of your tires has a tire pressure under 25% of its recommended pressure. When this happens, it’s time to top up your tires at your local service centre or gas station to ensure your traction and stability are not compromised. Always check the tire pressure guidelines that are written on the tires themselves and adhere to the tire manufacturer's recommendations.
I have all-wheel drive. Which of my tires will wear down the fastest?
If your tires are aligned, the back tires on your rear wheel drive vehicle will wear a little quicker than your front tires. When rotating the tires on a rear wheel drive vehicle, move the rear tires to the front but keep them on the same side. Having an expert technician rotate your tires for you is recommended to ensure proper alignment.
