Which are the best All-Season Tires?

In Quebec, the law stipulates that every vehicle on the road must be equipped with tires specially designed for winter between December 1st and March 15th. This law ensures better safety on the road in difficult driving conditions. However, not only winter tires are allowed to be used during this period. Did you know that winter-approved all-season tires are also accepted?

Contrary to winter tires that are specially designed for driving in icy conditions, winter-approved all-season tires are supposed to be used year-round. This is why we call them all-season tires; they reach the minimal requirements set by the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada.

Before using them in the snow, make sure that the special winter pictogram (a snowflake in a mountain) is present on your tires.

Are winter-approved all-season tires a good idea?

Winter-approved tires seem to carry many advantages. First of all, from a financial point of view, it is simpler to only purchase one set of all-season tires rather than doubling your expenses by purchasing both summer and winter tires. Being able to keep your tires all year and avoiding paying for the bi-annual tire change is definitely a good argument for drivers.

Therefore, we think that we are saving money by avoiding changing our tires in the winter and spring. But are all-season tires really adapted to your driving style and resistant enough long-term?

Are winter-approved all-season tires enough?

It is important to note that although they are winter-approved, all-season tires are still less adherent on icy roads due to their rubber blend that is more rigid than traditional winter tires. This rubber is also not totally adapted to the winter’s cold temperatures and has a tendency to wear more quickly than conventional tire rubber. By wanting to be adaptable for every season, all-season tires get worn out more quickly. We think we are saving money on tire changes, but come to realise that we will have to purchase new tires more quickly anyway! Certain all-season tires only last 30 000 km, instead of 50 000 km with winter tires.

Finally, if you live in an area that is relatively protected from the elements, or in a city where the streets are regularly cleared, winter-approved all-season tires can be enough. Especially if you have the opportunity to stay home in case of big storms! If you live in the country or in a region that receives a lot of snow, it is recommended to purchase winter tires; they are adapted to these conditions and much safer.

Before choosing between winter-approved all-season tires and winter tires, think about your driving habits and the environment you live in. If you aren’t sure which tires are best for you, don’t hesitate to make an appointment at your local Centre Auto Point S. Our experts will be able to answer all your questions and help you make the right decision.
