Accurate Tirecraft carries a selection of winter tires for Burlington vehicle owners. During the colder months, you should consider winter tires for your vehicle. Winter tires are made to improve traction, stopping, and handling when the temperature drops below 7°C/45°F. All-season tires can by good in many weather scenarios, but they often don’t provide the same grip and control that comes with winter tires. For a safer vehicle in cold and snowy weather, invest in winter tires.
All-season tires perform well in many types of weather, but may not be effective in heavy snow or slush.
These tires have limited traction in snowy weather if not properly designed for snow.
Winter tires feature a deeper tread which is great for traveling on snow, slush, and ice along with wet and dry roads.
Tips for Winter Safety
Install Four Winter Tires
Maintain control and stability in your vehicle during icy condition by adding four winter tires.
Avoid mixing tires with different tread patterns, internal construction, or size. This can affect the stability of your vehicle.
Replace Burlington Winter Tires Routinely
Your tires wear over time, reducing the traction of their tread. It’s important to replace your winter tires to ensure you always have enough traction for severe snowy conditions.
Check Air Pressure
Proper air pressure can extend the tread life of your winter tires while improving safety and reducing fuel consumption. Tire pressure can decrease when the temperature drops so it’s important to check your winter tire pressure at least once a month during the winter.
