Winter Tire Change In Vaughan

In Canada, depending on how you look at it, we are fortunate to have a variety of seasons. Each season is usually defined by the type of weather it brings. Many enjoy the warmer weather of spring and summer, while others prefer the cooler weather of fall and winter snow. In any instance, the weather will impact the effectiveness of the tires we use on our vehicles. When winter is upon us, snow tires add another layer of protection when it comes to handling, braking, and stability. Though when the snow begins to melt, and spring is around the corner, a winter tire is not suitable. All-season tires are a better option as temperatures begin to climb into the positives. There are various options when selecting the correct tire for the proper application. At Maple Honda, located at 89 Auto Vaughan Dr. Maple, Ontario, our tire centre is there to help you with selecting the correct tire for the upcoming season. If you already have a set, we can also swap and store them until they are needed.

For those of you who have been utilizing winter tires in Richmond Hill, Markham, Aurora, and Newmarket, you understand the added capabilities. Others who have not had a chance we strongly encourage the use of winter tires. A common question we get is, "When to change winter tire?" Below we will provide some insight:

  • A winter tires effectiveness begins to degrade when temperatures stay above 7 degrees.
  • The compound used in winter tires is softer, because when it gets cold it allows them to cut and carve through ice, snow, and harsh road conditions.
  • In warmer weather a soft compound will wear down quicker.
  • The tread pattern on winter tires are more aggressive due to their purpose of breaking up ice and snow while driving.
  • In warmer weather when roads are dry this aggressive tread pattern will cause greater road noise.
  • By choosing to swap tires every season, you prolong the life of each set.
  • In the long run, this will save you money because you're utilizing the correct tire for the proper season.
