Snow Tires

Deeper Tread Means More Grip

Snow tires are more effective then standard tires and even all-season tires because they have deeper tread with specifically designed patterns that allows more traction in, slush and ice. They also are made with a specific rubber compound that stays softer and more flexible in the cold weather that provides more contact to the surface and thus more control.

Essential for Winter Driver Safety

Winter tires are absolutely essential for winter driving safety. They not only help you get going in the often difficult driving conditions but equally as important, they allow you to stop. It you are going to the local mountains to ski, up to Whistler or into the Interior, snow tires are often mandatory to pass for obvious safety conditions. Please do not think that your superior driving skills matter when you are sliding on ice or stock in a few inches of snow because they won’t.

Renting Vehicles with Weather Appropriate Tires

Snow tires can be expensive running upwards of $250 per tire plus installation cost. It can be costly for the wallet and time especially considering the annual rush at tire shops when the white stuff starts to fall. Often the best solution for the snow tire issue in a climate like Vancouver where snow is not a constant on the ground in the city but does come at different times throughout the winter… is to rent a car, van or SUV already equipped of the snow tires. Vancouver is known to get dumps for one or two days here and there so its tough to justify buying snow tires but yet essential if you want to drive on those days. Not only will you be driving safely in a properly equipped car for the conditions but you can save your own vehicle from the dirt and damage caused by the constant salting trucks that service the road.
