Best Time for Seasonal Tire Change
It’s important to understand when to make the seasonal tire change to ensure your vehicle operates efficiently and safely throughout the year. In Toronto, the weather can be quite unpredictable, so here’s a simple guide to help you decide the best time to change your tires.
Winter tires are specifically crafted to perform at their best during the colder months. As the temperature consistently falls below 7°C (usually around late October to November), it’s wise to make the transition to winter tires. These tires are constructed with special rubber compounds that stay flexible in colder temperatures, providing better traction on icy and snowy roads.
When the temperature begins to rise consistently above 7°C, usually occurring from late March to April, consider switching back to summer or all-season tires. These tires are optimized for performance in warmer weather, offering excellent traction on both dry and wet roads.
To retain traction on the pavement, your tires' tread depth is essential. The minimum tread depth for winter tires is 4/32 inches, whereas the minimum tread depth for summer tires is 2/32 inches.
Look for visible signs of wear and tear, like cracks, bulges, or objects embedded in the tire. If you notice any of these signs, consider replacing the tire.
Variations in temperature may have an impact on tire pressure. Check the pressure regularly and adjust it according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
If you notice unusual vibrations while driving, it may indicate that the tires are worn unevenly or the wheel alignment is off. Have your vehicle inspected by professionals if you experience this issue.
Tires degrade over time. Even if the tread depth is adequate, manufacturers generally recommend replacing tires that are six to ten years old.
