Winters in Saskatchewan are intense, and driving can get hazardous. When it comes to your safety on the road, do not compromise. At Wheaton Cadillac, we strive to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. Choosing the proper tires for your vehicle is one of the foundations of your protection in winter. Here’s a glimpse of the differences between winter tires and all-season tires so you can stay informed and be safe this winter!
Winter tires are engineered to handle sub-zero temperatures, and all that winter may bring. From deep snowfall to icy roads, winter tires have a special tread pattern that allows them to better grip the road. The special rubber in winter tires provides ultimate traction, improving your braking distance and enhancing your safety. Because of their special design, winter tires do not lose flexibility or pressure when exposed to extremely cold temperatures.
ALL SEASON TIRES
All-season tires were designed for locations that may see the occasional snow flurry each year but where ice and snow aren’t the norms. These tires are great at handling fluctuations in temperatures, from hot summers to cold winters, but aren’t ideal in extreme weather conditions or snowstorms. If you live in Saskatchewan, where winters are long and roads are icy, all-season tires are an unsafe choice for your vehicle.
