What kind of vehicles should use All-Season Tires?
All vehicles should be using all-season tires. These types of tires are built for driving in wet and dry conditions. In general, all-season tires have low road noise, great traction and are long-lasting and durable. You can buy them in a wide range of styles and sizes for every type of vehicle including sedans, minivans, and SUVs.
What should you look for when shopping for a new set of All-Season Tires?
You should keep 3 things in mind if you’re thinking about buying a new set of All-Season Tires:
- Type of Vehicle – you will need the right set of tires, appropriate for the vehicle you drive. For example, if you own a minivan, you will probably need a different kind of all-season tire than an SUV will need.
- Driving Habits – you should buy tires based on the type of driving you do. Driving mainly on the highway will require different tires than only city driving.
- Budget – price isn’t the only factor that affects quality. So, if you want to find a superior tire at an affordable price, you’ll need to do a bit of research to find one within your budget.
What should you look for when comparing All-Season Tires in the market?
The quality of any tire, including all-season tires, are dependent on its treadwear and tire speed.
The tire speed rating is based on the maximum speed that a tire can safely carry a load, for a continuous period of time in ideal environments. On the other hand, treadwear grade is connected to the expected life of the tire. The type and amount of tread on a tire has a big influence on how well it will vacate water to maintain contact with the road throughout the rain. To sustain a high level of safety, you need to prevent your tires from wearing out too quickly. You can do this by ensuring you purchase tires with a higher treadwear, which equals a higher level of quality.
With so many options available, it’s a good idea to do your research by going online and looking up customer reviews. This will give you a better understanding of the pros and cons of each brand.
What is the difference between All-Season and Winter Tires?
As the name suggests, all-season tires can be used to drive through all four seasons. However, winter tires, also known as snow tires, are specifically crafted to handle harsh Canadian winter conditions.
Where should you buy All-Season Tires?
We always advise you to buy your tires from a licensed auto dealer. Try searching for ‘Hyundai tire change near me’ for more information. You can even look up all-season tire reviews before making your purchase.
Do you need to change all four tires into All-Season Tires?
Yes, we recommend that you purchase all four tires with the same make, model, and design.
Can you use your Winter Tires in the Summer?
As tempting as it might be to leave your winter tires on for the summer, our tire specialists strongly advise against this practice. Driving with your winter tires during the summer can prematurely wear them out and increase their stopping distance. It will also make it difficult to manoeuvre your vehicle and increase the risk of hydroplaning on wet roads.
Aside from making your drive more difficult, using your winter tires in the summer can be dangerous. Taking that chance increases the risk of a blowout because the rubber compound in winter tires is not designed to dispel heat. Equally important, if you continue to drive with your winter tires in the summer, your vehicle will need more fuel, which is not good for your pocket or the environment.
