OpenRoad Tires and tire storage in vancouver

Traveling this summer?

Did you know that winter tires wear down faster in warmer temperatures?

Winter driving is over. Don’t keep driving on your cold-weather and all-season tires now that summer conditions have arrived. Winter and all-season tires are made with a softer rubber compound, meaning they will wear down faster in the heat and create potentially dangerous driving conditions for your vehicle.

winter tires vs summer tires

It’s important to swap your tires when the seasons change in BC.

Each type of seasonal tire is engineered with different rubber compounds for specific temperature ranges. Your winter tires are not made for warm and dry pavement, and your vehicle’s handling won’t be at its best without proper warm-weather tires. There is around 15 percent less steering precision when using winter tires during warmer temperatures.

Braking distance is impacted by your tire type

Winter tires have more tread blocks than spring tires, which can increase stopping distance significantly when used on warm and dry pavement. Switching to spring tires can also lower your vehicle’s rolling resistance to give you better gas mileage in the warmer months.
