Erin Dodge Tire Centre

There are many important factors to look at when it comes to Tires. Most importantly, the proper fit for your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram. Tire Alignment is critical for the safety of your vehicle and the passengers onboard. Secondarily, the type of tire you are using and the differences between All-Season and Winter Tires and when to make the switch.

Let the experts from Erin Dodge help you! 

All Season Tires: 

All season tires can handle a variety of road conditions and weather types including dry roads and wet roads. These tires are designed for temperate conditions as the tire compound is relatively smooth, tight and straight making it easy to grab a dry road and repel water when driving through rain.

All-season tires can be used in Ontario throughout the spring, summer and early fall. 

Why Winter Tires:

Winter Tires should be used once the temperature hits around 7 degrees celsius.  Snow does not need to be on the ground to make your switch to Winter Tires.  When the temperature drops at or below seven degrees celsius,  all-season tires will start to lose their grip on the road. Having Winter Tires on your vehicle will help you have improved control of your vehicle and help decrease breaking distances compared to all-season tires. 

Winter Tires are equipped with a different tread compound than all-season tires. The tread block is much wider to avoid snow and slush from accumulating.  Modern Winter Tires have 50% more traction compared to all-season tires, according to the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada.

It is important to always install four Winter Tires instead of two. Installing only two can cause loss of control and inconsistent traction.
