Winter Tires vs. All-Season Tires

Mercedes-Benz Run-Flat Tire


Canadian winters can be among the most brutal on earth. If you’re wondering if you can get by with just all-season tires, all-season tires can maintain traction on the occasional patch of ice, but Canadian drivers need winter tires that can handle the truly treacherous roads of Newmarket. Read on to learn about the specific benefits of winter tires, Mercedes-Benz tires, and when you should switch out your tires. Then, get in touch with the Mercedes-Benz Newmarket service department for help!



Advantages of Winter Tires

In most climates, all-season tires are just fine for winter roads, but in Aurora, winter tires are indispensable. While all-season tires can hack it on sleet and light ice, you require winter tires if you want to cut through deeper snowbanks and maintain traction on thick ice. The differences between winter tires vs. all-season tires come down to tread. Let’s take a closer look at how winter tires set themselves apart from all-season tires:

  • Winter tires feature thousands of slits called biting edges that help them slice through snowbanks and thick ice while increasing traction.
  • They also feature deeper grooves with more complex patterns for a firmer grip on Newmarket roads.
  • Finally, winter tires feature a unique rubber that can withstand extreme temperatures. All-season tires can be dangerous to drive in Canadian winters because their rubber material can be damaged by the cold and lead to blowouts.

When should you switch your tires out? We recommend installing them once the average temps fall below 45 degrees, so you’re prepared for the first big snowstorms of the year!

The Perks of Mercedes-Benz Tires

Mercedes-Benz tires have been designed in accordance with 40 different inspection regulations. They’re highly durable, long-lasting, and they also feature MOE run-flat technology. When a Mercedes-Benz tire experiences a puncture, you can continue to drive on that tire for several dozen kilometres—buying you enough time to drive to a warm place or service garage, rather than having to wait on the side of the road in sub-zero temperatures. This is because run-flat tires feature a hard, interior rubber underneath the exterior of the tire that can handle the friction of the road.
