Why You Should Buy Your Winter Tires Early
It is important to start thinking about winter tires early in the season. If you don’t have a set of winter tires or are looking to replace your tires from last year, here are the top reasons to start your search before the cold weather arrives.
If you start looking for winter tires too late, you’re likely to be disappointed with the selection. Automotive shops will start stocking their winter tires in the late summer. If you want access to the full selection and the best options, you should start shopping as early as possible — you don’t want to get stuck with the leftovers.
Rebates & Savings
Want to save a bit of money on your winter tires? Buying early is one of the best ways to do this. Many tire manufacturers will offer rebates as an incentive to buy early, and these rebates don’t last through the winter. Get a head start on your search and you could save money.
The last thing you want is to be rushing to get your winter tires before an impending snow storm. If you start early, you can relax and book an installation at a time that’s convenient for you — plus your auto shop will have better availability!

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any more questions about winter tires for your vehicle, check out some of our frequently asked questions below for information.
Winter tires are made with a different composition of vulcanized rubber than all-season tires. This rubber is designed to stay soft, even in Canada’s freezing winter temperatures, in order to improve your vehicle’s performance in these conditions.
This is important because, if your tires become too stiff, they will lose traction and increase your chance of slipping. Extensive research has shown that winter tires are able assist with overall vehicle performance, including acceleration, traction, stopping distance, control, and handling.
No, you should not mix and match winter tires. We recommend that you always use four matching tires.
Matching tires will greatly improve your vehicle handling and performance, and can help to prevent accidents. Mixing tires with different tread patterns, internal construction, or size is not recommended and may be dangerous.
Winter tires that have been designed for snow use have a picture of a peaked mountain with a snowflake. This image is located on the sidewall of your tire. These tires meet high Canadian standards for improved winter traction performance. They should not be confused with mud and snow (M+S) rated winter tires.
Yes. It’s always a good idea to check the pressure of your winter tires regularly, especially before driving on the highway. Properly inflated, high-quality winter tires will give you the best traction on winter roads and increase fuel efficiency.
It is important to remember that a tire with good pressure (when checked in a warm garage) will actually be under-inflated when it is below zero outside, since tire pressure goes down in the cold. That is why you should ideally do your checks when the tires are cold.
If you don’t know the recommended PSI levels of your winter tires, they can be found in your vehicle’s owners manual or door frame. It’s important to remember that you should never go above the pressure shown on the tire sidewall.
It’s also a great idea to check the pressure of your spare tires regularly. If your spare tire is under inflated, you won’t be able to use it as a replacement as it won’t fit on your rims. So make sure you are being proactive and checking all your tires on a regular basis.
