All Season vs Winter Tires
Reasons to Change Your All-Season Tires
The air our tires encounter at highway speeds can easily be compressed and moved out of the way with relative ease. However, the same isn't true of liquids. When water collects on the road surface during rainstorms, the water depth, vehicle speed and vehicle weight, as well as the tires' tread designs and tread depths collectively determine when and if the tires will be forced to hydroplane and how quickly they can stop a vehicle.
Design elements that impact wet grip:Groove ratio: The more/larger grooves a tire has, the better the tire pumps out water.
• Shape and layout: The shape of the tread patterns (symmetrical, directional, and asymmetrical) contributes to how quickly water is drained.
• Sipes: These are thin slits in the rubber surface of the tread. They improve traction in wet or icy conditions. Acting like windshield wipers, sipes help the edges and grooves of a tire to drain away water.The surface cracks that occasionally appear have been called many things: Weather Checking, Weather Cracking or Ozone Cracking. These small cracks typically develop in the sidewalls or at the base of the tread grooves. Depending on their severity, they may be cosmetic in nature if they don't extend past the rubber's outer surface, or may be a reason to replace the tire if they reach deep into the rubber.

Types Of Tires - Myers Has You Covered
Summer tires are designed primarily for warm, dry driving conditions. The compounds and tread patterns are ideal for maximum traction in hot weather, and don’t tend to perform well in snow, ice, or cold temperatures.
Although summer tires can also perform well on wet roads, it’s important to keep in mind that wider tires have an increased chance of hydroplaning. To prevent this, consider choosing summer tires with a directional tread design.

All-season tires tend to be an economical choice for many drivers, but if you’re looking for superior traction in difficult driving conditions, nothing beats dedicated winter tires. How are winter tires able to handle Canadian road conditions? A combination of specialized tread designs and compounds allow winter tires to perform better than their year-round counterparts.
Choosing the right winter tires for your vehicle will not only help keep you safer on the roads this winter, you’ll also enjoy optimal control while maintaining your vehicle’s fuel efficiency!

All Season Tires
Just like the name suggests, all-season tires are designed for year-round use. Their specialized tread patterns and compounds can handle most driving conditions, such as snow, rain, heat, and cold. All-season tires also offer a smooth ride and exceptional handling on almost any terrain.
Although all-season tires might seem like the perfect choice, the trade-off is a loss of traction and compound stiffening when the temperature falls beneath 7 degrees Celsius. This makes them less effective in snowy conditions than dedicated winter tires.
