What Types of Tires are Available?

All-Season Tires

All-season tires are the most common type of tire drivers will find attached to a vehicle. As their name suggests, these tires are designed to provide a decent degree of traction throughout the entire year. While these tires provide an acceptable level of handling and traction in most situations, they won’t be able to match the sporty performance provided by summer tires or the additional grip provided by winter tires.

Winter Tires

Winter tires are perfect for those who want additional traction and grip once the winter season is in full force. These tires feature deeper treads and specialized patterns, allowing the vehicle to better maintain its grip on slick surfaces like ice and snow. However, these tires aren’t designed for use in warm weather, and will need to be changed out once winter comes to a close.

Summer Tires

Driving enthusiasts who are looking to maximize their vehicle’s handling and performance will want to equip their vehicle with summer tires. These tires are made out of more flexible materials than other types of tires, and feature less grooving. The additional rubber contact allows for greater cornering, speed, and agility, but makes these tires less than ideal in poor road conditions.

How Long Do Tires Last?

Typically, all-season tires last between three to five years, which translates to about 88,000 to 135,000 kilometres worth of travel for the average driver. Naturally, this range will vary depending on how regularly a driver uses their vehicle. However, most vehicle experts suggest that drivers change their vehicle’s tires after a decade of purchase, regardless of use.

Winter tires typically last about three or four years on average, assuming drivers are only using them in the conditions they were intended for. Summer tires, similarly, don’t typically last as long as their all-season counterparts and will likely need to be replaced after four years.

Taking Care of Your Tires

Once your new tires are securely installed onto your vehicle, it’s important to practice proper tire care to ensure they last as long as possible. Every month, drivers should be sure to check their tire pressure to ensure they’re properly inflated. Similarly, drivers should take their vehicle in to get their tires rotated every six months to make sure that each tire gets an even amount of wear.
