The Weather Network – Think twice if you’re still discussing whether to use winter tires

Thursday, November 11, 2021, 10:13 AM – A 2021 study by the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC) found that 79 percent of those who use winter tires say it prevented loss of road control or a collision .

Winter may still be a month away, but that does not mean that the snowfall and the cold temperatures will wait until then (and it has not in parts of the country).

Therefore, the pressure to put winter tires on is real for Royal Automotive, says owner Moh Alkayale. The thought of getting them installed before the weather hits has meant late nights.

“Everyone is trying to get their tires on before the first snowfall, so it’s a matter of catching up with the race. We worked last night until around 9 at night just to try to catch up,” Alkayale said.

According to a 2021 study by the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC), the use of winter tires is increasing. The survey found that 79 percent of those who use winter tires say it prevented a loss of control on the roads or a collision.

It also indicated among those who do not use winter tires that 59 percent believe year-round tires are adequate.
