If you’ve been following me on Instagram over the last month, you may have tuned in for my weekly sponsored #TireTipTuesday segment. I’ve partnered with Kal Tire to spread the word about safe winter driving, and that all starts with safe tire choices.

TireTipTuesday Kal Tire

A Kal Tire winter driving survey confirms many Canadians aren’t making safe tire choices for winter driving: Two-thirds of motorists don’t know how to tell if a tire is winter-rated, and most have misperceptions about when it’s safe to use all-season tires.

Survey shows nearly one-third of Canadians think all-seasons are safe for severe winter conditions; few drivers know what the winter tire symbol means

According to the survey, which polled 1,664 motorists from BC to Ontario, 89 per cent of Canadian motorists state they encounter severe winter driving conditions at least occasionally, including 35 per cent who face the conditions regularly. Yet one-third of motorists plan on using all-season tires this winter; 41 per cent of those drivers feel all-season tires are “fine.”

Results showed that 66 per cent of Canadian motorists don’t know the difference between all-season and all-weather tires.

All-season tires are designed for warm, dry and mild wet conditions in temperatures above +7C. Winter tires are needed for traction in cold temperatures, once it starts to dip below +7C, as well as snow, ice and slush. All-weather tires are winter designated, bearing the mountain snowflake symbol, but can also be driven year-round without wearing prematurely in the summer — eliminating the need for tire changeovers or storage.

Weather data across Canada shows the average temperature in all major cities drops below +7C in November. In Vancouver, the average temperature is below +7C by November, and doesn’t reach above +7C again until March.

“Once it starts dipping below the +7C mark, the rubber of an all-season tire hardens, loses traction, and the tread blocks can get really clogged with snow and slush so it’s not a safe choice even in mild winter conditions,” says Bill Gardiner, an automotive expert, interprovincial licensed mechanic and Kal Tire spokesperson. “In the Lower Mainland we have a lot of people who head to Whistler and the Interior to ski. If people here need a year-round tire, the all- weather might be the right choice for them.”

    tire tip, look out for the mountain and snowflake for snow tires, snow tires can be used November – march when it dips below 7 degrees Celsius. all season tires can get hard under cold conditions not providing enough traction, thats where snow tires are able to keep there rigidity and distribute the slush to remain contact on the road for better traction while driving providing more surface area to road contact

    it its advisable to check tire pressure once a month

    much love! be safe out there

    Tire tip: buy all-weather tires. For the vast majority of us here, living & driving exclusively in the bubble of Metro Vancouver, all-weather tires are sufficient for the limited snow we see and, as mentioned, save you more than doubling your tire costs. Yes, they’re not quite as good as straight winter tires but they’re night-and-day compared to sticking with all-seasons all year round.

    I’m surprised that all the tire centres don’t suggest them more often – or maybe I’m not… after all, pushing straight “winter tires” doubles their revenue 🙂
