Let’s face it, Ontario is beautiful – but it’s not all that great. Yes it has the beautiful waters of Tobermory, amazing landscapes and is just buzzing with wonderful cultures and backgrounds. However, there’s one thing that can make all that serenity seem almost not worth it. Hazardous winter conditions can be ill-prepared for and often result from change in car tires. Have you ever found yourself on the 401 in December thinking when you’ll get to your destination? If you’re like the most of us, you might even find yourself driving 40 in a 100 zone. Also, like most of us, you’ve probably thought all-season tires will do the job. Well, how do you feel about a waiter only bringing back half your order?

Change your car tires for winter, it makes a big difference.

Yes. Winter tires are specifically designed for driving in winter conditions and that doesn’t just mean when there is snow on the ground. As the road gets colder, changing the tires can improve your traction, therefore, increase safety. Tires are the only connection your car has to the road so you don’t want them to be the weakest link of your car.You should change your car tires when the temperature is consistent below 7 degrees Celsius. Since majority of the cars are front wheel driven, it is best to ensure that all your tires have adequate traction. To be a safe driver it is best to be responsible and get them changed.

That may not be enough to have you go in to your mechanic twice a year. What if there was a monetary incentive to change the car tires? It turns out, in Ontario some insurance companies offer a discounts to policy holders if/when they change their car tires to winters. Also, since winter only lasts a couple of months, your tire will last for years to come. It’s the little things that make a huge difference in our safety.

So what about All-Seasons?

All-seasons are great, maybe just not for all seasons in Ontario? We have 3 seasons where the temperature and road conditions between them are not too varied so we may not need to change our car tires. However, since there is more wear-and-tear, they need to be replaced more frequently.

There are many wonderful things to do in Ontario in the winter, so it’s best to make sure that we get to where we need to go, safely.
