The 7 Degrees of Winter Tires

In Manitoba, Winter months are full of snow, slippery conditions and cold temperatures. Changing to Winter Tires can help keep you safe and save you money. Once the temperature dips below 7 degrees Celcius, it's time to switch to cold weather tires.

What are the benefits of driving with cold weather tires?

Winter tires feature deeper tread grooves than summer tires, making it easier to grip the road on ice and slippery snow surfaces. When the temperature drops below that 7 degrees, summer tires begin to lose their ability to grip and begin to harden. Winter tires are made of softer rubber and more flexible. They reduce hydroplaning on wet surfaces and assist in making steering and braking easier in winter conditions. Winter tires are safer on Manitoba roads in the winter.
