WINTER TIRE SWAP
WINTER TIRES IN RICHMOND, BC
At Dueck Richmond, in Richmond, British Columbia, we understand the importance of winter tires and the enhanced safety they provide. In fact, from October 1st to April 30th, most BC highways require winter tires since they provide improved traction and control in icy conditions. Continue reading as we highlight some of the benefits of installing winter tires.
Once the temperature starts to drop, the rubber compound found in all-season tires begins to harden and lose its elasticity, which can result in longer stopping times. Winter tires are engineered with a special compound that stays soft in the colder months and can improve your braking distance by up to 25 percent, which can help reduce the chance of a collision when the roads are covered in ice, snow, or slush.
The special rubber compound also allows your tires to be more flexible, which improves traction and reduces the risk of losing control or skidding. Winter tires consist of sipes, which are minor cuts designed to reduce the snow build-up in your tires, contributing to better traction and a reduced braking distance and helping the tire maintain its grip on the road.
