Winter Tires Ottawa
Winter Tires in Ottawa are definitely recommended for every vehicle. Snow, ice, freezing rain are all regular parts of winter in Ottawa. To travel safely every vehicle should have winter tires.
Winter Tires are available in ice, snow, and multi-season.
Ice tires are recommended for Ottawa. Snow tires are a little more economical and a good intermediate option. All Season tires are the last option for snow and ice.
A winter tire is a tire that is specifically designed to perform better in the winter months. If you live in a region where the temperature drops below 0° Celsius (32° Fahrenheit), then you should have winter tires installed on your car. A good time to take this initiative is right after the year's first hard frost, but before the first big snowfall.
A car needs winter tires to deal with the harsh road conditions of the winter. Normal tires are meant to operate in moderate temperatures and the rubber has a tendency to become stiff and ineffective when the temperature drops. Winter tires are made of a softer compound, however, that can tolerate cold weather without becoming too stiff.
Snow is another factor that winter tires are designed to contend with. A normal tire is made to deal with rainy conditions and not snow. It's much more likely for snow to get stuck in the treads and this greatly reduces your car's traction. Winter tires have grooves that make snow build-up less likely, which increases your car's traction.
It's a simple fact that during winter, cars perform much less effectively. It will take you longer to come to a complete stop, you'll have to take turns more slowly, and you'll have to reduce your overall speed to keep your car safe. The one thing you can do to make this transition a little easier is get new winter tires installed before conditions get too bad.
Winter tires may not be mandatory in Ontario as they are in Quebec, but it is still a good idea to get some. It doesn't take long to have them installed and the peace of mind you'll get will be worth the effort. Come to a Gary's Automotive location near you and have winter tires put on your car today.
