The snow and ice is gone from (most) of Canada now, which means it’s time to take off those winter tires and swap them for a set of summer rubber. Here’s what you need to know.
Have you noticed that little spring in everybody’s step of late? Or perhaps those tiny little green buds peaking up ever-so-slightly from the front garden?That’s because winter’s icy grip on much of Canada has finally begun to loosen and that means warmer weather is well and truly on the way. When exactly to swap out your winter wheels is a tough call, especially in Canada. Our spring weather can vary greatly from day-to-day, bouncing wildly above and below freezing. (Remember the crazy late-spring snowstorm in Edmonton this year?) Most experts agree though that it is best to have about 10 days of consistently positive temperatures before removing your winter tires. Waiting too long to remove those cold weather wheels can be detrimental to the tires and cost you extra cash down the road. Winter tires are engineered to performance best in low temperatures and on ice and snow. Their tread compound is made of materials that stay pliable and spongy as the mercury plummets, ensuring you still have a sure grip on frigid roads. Driving a winter tire on dry pavement simply wears them down that much faster, meaning you might have to buy a new set a season sooner.
