Toronto – Even though fall weather seems to be holding strong, so far, it’s never too early to start thinking about whether or not to install winter tires on your vehicle.
If you’re planning on heading to the backcountry this weekend, it’s probably not a bad idea to make the switch now. A sudden snowfall can make many back roads a mess this time of year.
Experts say it’s better to be safe than sorry when the snow hits.
Long harsh winters are all too familiar to Canadian motorists and being prepared could go a long way to arriving on time safely.
About 50 per cent of Canadians drive with all season tires year-round.
Driving slower will help but this could mean problems for those without winter tires, according to tire experts.
Experts are urging drivers to avoid all season tires once it hits seven degrees Celsius. That’s because once you hit the brakes it takes an extra 30 metres to stop.
Making the switch and knowing what tire works well for your driving style may help you roll through old man winter problem free.
