All Weather Tires
ALL WEATHER TIRES FOR WINTER & SNOW
All-weather tires have a Severe Snow Traction rating. This means that in wintery conditions your stopping distance is considerably shorter, meaning the people in the car are safer in the snow. Toyo, Michelin, Kumho and Bridgestone offer all weather tires that we can order and install here at 416 Wheels and Tires. A symbol of a three-peak mountain with a snowflake in the middle lets you know that tires have the Severe Snow Traction rating. Drivers in Canada should consider all weather tires as a year-round option. For trucks and SUVs there are various combinations of mud and snow ratings that our techs at Mississauga’s favorite tire shop can recommend.
Why You Need All-Weather Tires in Mississauga
All Weather or Winter tires are a necessity in Mississauga when the temperature drops below 7° Celsius. The rubber in All Weather tires is made to remain traction and flexibility even in freezing temperatures. They are designed to increase traction in wintry conditions without compromising handling or ride comfort. Even the most experienced drivers will benefit from a set of all weather tires.
More than 70% of Canadian residents use all weather tires during the cold season and believe that they have saved them from being involved in a collision. They are designed to give you better stopping control and shorter braking distances on icy roads. With these tires installed on your vehicle, you’ll feel more confident when driving in slippery conditions.
In addition to providing better safety while driving, all weather tires are also known to have a longer lifespan than winter tires. Winter tires are made of an even softer rubber compound which helps them grip the road better in cold weather. This also makes them more susceptible to wear and tear. Winter tires are typically more expensive than all-season tires, but they last longer and give you better traction in cold conditions.
All weather tires are also called snow or cold weather tires and are made of a different rubber compound than all-season tires. The rubber used in winter and all weather tires is softer than most tires, which can withstand freezing temperatures and retain the necessary flexibility to grip the road. They have deeper tread depths and are wider than other tires. Their tread patterns have tiny grooves called ‘sipes’ that cut through snow and slush for consistent traction on the roads. These tread compounds are inspired by advanced racing technologies, helping to keep you in control in the snow and ice.

All Weather Tire FAQs
Q: What is the difference between all-weather tires and all season tires?
A: Generally speaking, all-seasons are intended for use only in non-freezing, dry, and mild wet conditions. All-weather tires, on the other hand, are suitable for winter conditions with heavy rain, snowfall, and slush. The main factor is the rubber: all weather tires’ rubber remains soft at freezing temperatures to maintain grip and properly divert snow and slush.
Q: When should I put all weather tires on?
A: Your all weather or winter tires should be on your car in the fall when the temperature falls below 45 F., or 7C., and starts to stay there consistently. Installing your winter tires early will help you maintain the recommended tire pressure for winter.
Q: What kinds of vehicles can you install all weather tires on?
A: At 416 Wheels & Tires, we can swap out your existing tires for all weather or snow tires on any car, truck, or SUV. If you would prefer to get a new set of wheels to mount your winter tires on, we can provide that Seasonal Tire Changeover service as well.
