What are they and do you need them?
Once October is here, temperatures have dropped across the country. That means it’s time to put on your car’s winter set. And if you don’t have winter tires, perhaps you should consider investing in a set.
A few things make it a winter tire. First of all, they have big blocks of tread and deep grooves to bite into the snow. Second, when cornering, they tend to have a squared shoulder to dog in the snow. The multiple compounds of rubber are the reason why they are not only for snow and ice. The winters really excel on the dry pavement where all-seasons tend to be less efficient.
However, there are some major downsides to winter tires. They offer you more grip at lower temperatures, typically 7 degrees and below, but they have less grip above 7 degrees. That implies you need to switch to all-season or summers in springtime. The cost of the second set is there, you typically pay to have them switched twice a year, and then the issue of storing the second set is there.
Perhaps most important for powerful performance cars are winter tires. Often this sort of vehicle comes with normal radials, in contrast to winter-certified rubber. When it’s hot, they offer you a stronger grip, but when it’s cold, they’re straight hazardous.
All-seasons are better than they ever were, and for most individuals, they’re going to work. But having a set for winter and summer is the way to go if you want the complete highest output at all temperatures.
Do “All Weathers” work in Alberta?
Depending on if you’re looking for a do-it-all tire that can bring you through a heatwave to a snowstorm, the trick could be done by all-weather sets.
They have specially crafted tread designs and improved rubber compounds that offer to rival winter and snow-rated rubber momentum in cold weather and perform well under milder circumstances, comparable to all seasons.
Make sure you have the correct tires for you to get traction this winter. And don’t forget in the warmer months to check your pressure. Under-inflation wears tread quicker and may also pose a danger to safety.
Yes, they are legal in Calgary!
Are you sick of finding every winter that you still need more traction? We’re offering the best alternative at the Car Salon. In Calgary & surrounding regions, we serve clients. Do not be unprepared when the winter climate strikes tough!
So what are studs? We take your new rubber and insert in the tread layout 80 to 100 studs into prefabricated holes. Studs look like short, flat nails and are made up of two main parts. The carbide pin of tungsten protrudes beyond the pneumatic tread and contacts the pavement surface, while the outside of the stud is held in the tread at its base. Studs are placed flat-head-down and for spreading the rubber and inserting the stud we use a unique device. Only new sets can be studded.
What occurs at the end of winter when you no longer need your studs? At the Car Salon, we are offering stud removal. If the rubber is comparatively new and the tread depth remains important, we can remove the stud by lubricating the studs and removing the studs by twisting each one with pliers. Even if the set is older but still has a reasonable tread depth, we can still give stud removal, although, without the studs, the wheels will now have less traction.
Air pressure should be checked daily once the studs are removed to guarantee that there are no leaks. Whether yours are old or new, our qualified experts will ensure that your vehicle is in great driving condition once the studs have been removed.
