FAQ

Do I need winter tires on all wheel drive vehicles with M+S tires?

If you are planning to drive in the winter conditions, absolutely. All-wheel drive may help to get you going, but will not help much in stopping. If you can’t stop, perhaps it is better not to get going at all. So if the road is icy, covered in snow, or just very cold, the good winter tires will keep you on the road, helping to keep you going where you want to go, and stopping when you want to stop.

What is the difference between M+S (all-season) tires and winter tires?

All-season tires have tread with more void area between the tread block, making the tire, in most cases, somewhat more capable to deal with light snow. Winter tires are designed to work well in cold weather, on ice, and in snow. The tread compound is made of material which remains pliable in cold and freezing temperatures, and tread design is optimized for maximum traction on ice and snow.

When should I replace my tires?

When the tire is damaged, worn, too old, or gives you less-than-satisfactory performance.

When is a tire too old?

Performance of any tire falls of as it ages. After five years, the stopping distance becomes considerably longer, and tires older than 10 years should definitely be taken out of service, unless it is used as a tire swing.
