Cold Weather Tires
The first time you hit black, cold ice on a freezing night this winter, you'll be glad you came to the tire experts to have your winter tires installed.
Niagara Battery & Tire stocks thousands of tires from industry leading, trusted manufacturers. We have the knowledge and expertise to help you find the right cold weather tires to keep you and your family safe on the road this winter.
Cold weather tires provide maximum traction in snowy and icy conditions. They save lives, decrease the number of expensive accidents and reduce the likelihood that you'll be seriously injured if you are in a collision. You'll want to look for a tire with a high quality rubber compound and tread design, which will determine how well it will grip the road. The tread is designed for maximum traction, cornering and braking on cold weather road surfaces and the tire is constructed from special material that remains flexible in cold weather, so it can adapt to cold and icy road conditions. This means you'll have a shorter stopping distance, You'll notice more noise and more rapid tread wear than with all season tires, but the increased traction will give you peace of mind that your tires will handle the hard, packed-in snow, ice and cold that is the hallmark of our harsh Canadian winters.
We recommend having your winter tires installed once the temperature falls to 7 C or below. When your thermometer reaches this level, you'll find your summer or all season tires provide less traction, which can quickly become a safety issue. We carry hundreds of tires from industry leading, trusted manufacturers so you get hassle-free, reliable and personalized customer service. Come and see us today.
