Which Michelin Tires are Best For Me? 

All Season Tires

For the average driver, our technicians at 416 wheels and tires will recommend All Season Tires. Michelin produces a wide range that perform better than their summer/performance counterparts in colder temperatures and on wet roads. There are types and sizes of All Season Tires for cars, trucks, and SUVs, all of which are designed to maintain grip in the rain and provide agile handling in most weather conditions to get you from point A to point B safely and comfortably. 

Performance Tires

If you drive a sports car and need reliable handling at high speed, Michelin provides a wide range of Performance Tires (link) The newest high-performance tires are designed to handle inclement weather and wet roads. They are also typically rated to be very reliable for fast speeds. Each tire has its own speed rating but many in this category will handle 168 mph or 2700 rpm. Essentially, performance tires have been specifically made to give cars the best acceleration, handling, and braking capabilities on and off the track. If improved grip and a heightened driving experience are priorities, stop in and talk to us about the best fit for your car.

Winter Tires

If you already have all-season tires and are getting ready for the snow, check out  Michelin’s Winter Tires page (link) For wintery conditions, make sure your car is equipped with the best traction and braking capabilities possible. Winter tires are designed to keep your vehicle in control on ice or snow-covered roads while providing better traction than all-season tires. During the cold winters of Toronto, it’s highly recommended that you switch to winter tires to improve your safety on the road. 416 Wheels and Tires in Mississauga specializes in winter tires and winter tire installation.
