|Why Change to Winter Tires?|
|You will benefit from increased traction and shorter stopping distances by using winter tires. These benefits apply on slush, ice, and wet snow-covered roads. When the temperature dips below 7°C, your safety depends on having good-quality winter tires.|
|1. Better Braking Distances||2. Improved Vehicle Cornering|
On dry pavement, with temperatures just below freezing, the stopping distance for vehicles equipped with winter tires is 30% less than vehicles with all-season tires.
In a cornering comparison where both cars and SUVs had to make a 90-degree turn at 40 km/h, only the vehicles equipped with winter tires were able to complete the turn.
|3. Better Traction||4. Decreased Aquaplaning Effect|
Winter tires have better traction on a snowy surface at temperatures of -40°C than all-season tires have at +4°C.
Winter tires' tread design provides high-drainage capacity, which counters the danger of aquaplaning, which can occur when the road surface is wet or when there is standing water*.
|When to Change to Winter Tires?|
|Winter tires should always be used when the outdoor temperature is consistently below 7°C.|
