Once Should You Really Substitute Your Winter Season Tires?

Winter tires can grip iceand brake and turn on treacherous roads pushing away snow and slush. They will lose their performance as the tread of your winter tires decreases as time passes.

Checking your tires' tread depth is the best method to determine whether your winter tires require to be replaced.

We'll look at the effects of tire wear on the safety of your vehicle and its handling, and the reason winter tires are better suited to winter weather over all-season tires, and how you can determine if your wallet has tread depth. To find out more information on tire, you have to check out site.

What do you do to know if your winter tires are worn?
The tread's sharp edges get smaller as it gets. Winter tires should be replaced as soon as they're half-worn to ensure reliable braking and cornering in snow and ice.

Transport Canada states that tires with a tread thickness of less than 5/32 inches (4 millimetres), should not be used on snowy roads. The tire manufacturers and the majority of provincial laws stipulate that tires should be replaced if the tread is greater than 4/32 inches during winter. The tires are considered bald if the tread depth reaches these levels. Take this chart as an example:

Brand new - 12/32"
25 percent worn - 9.5/32"
50 percent worn - 7/32" REPLACE TIRES
75 percent worn - 4.5/32"
100 percent worn - 2/32"

What is the way winter tires and all-weather tires perform over 3-season tires?
As opposed to 3-season, previously also known as all-season tires the most durable winter tires come with an aggressive tread pattern that is designed to bite into snow and push out slush. The rubber compound in winter tires has been designed to remain soft even in frigid temperatures. This ensures dependable grip even when temperatures drop below 7°C.

How do you check the tread on your tires?
There are three easy ways to check the tread depth of your tires.

With a Toonie
Put a toonie between your tread blocks. If the tread extends to the bear's paws, then your tires have plenty of tread left (they're probably new!). The tread on your tires could be worn to a half if the tread block covers the silver part of the toonie. If the tread extends to the letters ('CANADA' or 'DOLLARS'), then your tires must be replaced.

With indicators for tire tread wear
You may also find wear indicators for treads in your tires. These are small raised bars, typically six per tire, which follow the tire's grooves and indicate the tread depth limit. If you notice that these indicators are worn you should replace your tires now.

By using a tire tread depth measurement
Tire tread depth gauges provide a quick and easy method for you to be sure that the treads on your tyre are secure or need to be replaced. You can find tread depth gauges for tires at almost all gas stations. To make it easy to access, put one in your glove compartment. Here's how you can use one:

Find the groove that is the most shallow of the tread, and then insert the gauge's pin until the base is level with the tire.

Read the scale. You're good to go with a value between 7-12/32". You can increase your winter braking and cornering with winter tires that are less than 7/32".
