Why Buy Summer or All-Season Tires?
As Goderich starts warming up to rising temperatures, at Goderich Toyota we are recommending that our customers get ready to replace their Toyota’s winter tires with a good quality set of all-season tires. Sometimes you may be unable to decide if it’s indeed the right time to make this change. Our suggestion is to keep an eye on the temperature. Once you notice that the daily low temperatures are consistently above freezing and there are no more long-term snow forecasts, it’s time to get your all-season tires installed.
We can provide tires for not just Toyota vehicles, but also for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, GMC, Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, Honda, Hyundai vehicles, and more!
At our store, we often get questions like why are all-season tires important, what’s the right kind of tire to use for different vehicles, etc. Go through our FAQ section below if you have any tire-related queries. We may be able to provide you with the answers.
Here are the answers to some tire-related questions that you ask us. If you have more questions, feel free to call us or drop in, and we’ll be happy to help you!
What kind of vehicles should use all-season tires?
All vehicles should use all-season tires, be it a Toyota or a light truck. These tires help to make driving in wet and dry conditions easy. All-season tires generally have low road noise, great traction and are long-lasting and durable. They are also available in a wide range of styles and sizes for all kinds of vehicles including sedans, minivans, and SUVs.
What should you look for when comparing the all-season tires in the market?
Treadwear and tire speed are important elements that decide the quality of any tire, including your all-season tires.
The treadwear grade is related to the expected life of the tire. The amount of tread on a tire is critical in determining how well it will vacate water to maintain contact with the road in the rain. If your tires wear out quickly, your safety may be at risk. Therefore higher the treadwear of your tire, the better is its quality.
The tire speed rating is the maximum speed that a tire can safely carry a load for a sustained amount of time in ideal conditions.
Tire companies offer tires with different treadwear and tire speed. Go online to do your research and read reviews car owners who’ve used their products. This will help you understand the benefits and downsides of each brand.
Where do you need to go to buy all-season tires?
We always recommend that you buy your tires from a licensed dealer.
Can you drive winter tires in the summer?
Tempting as it might be to leave your winter tires on for the summer, our tire specialists strongly advise against this practice. Driving with winter tires in summer can increase stopping distances, making it difficult to manoeuver the vehicle, and also increase the risk of hydroplaning on wet pavement.
Keeping your winter tires on during summer does not just make driving difficult; it’s also dangerous. It increases the risk of a blowout because the rubber compound in winter tires isn’t designed to dispel heat. Equally important, if you continue to use winter tires in summer, your vehicle will need more fuel. This is not good for your pocket or the environment.
