Winter Tires Evacuating Snow and Ice: Tread and Siping.

Don't compromise your safety by thinking you can get away with all seasons this winter. All four wheels need winter tires regardless of whether you have front-wheel, rear-wheel, all-wheel, or four-wheel-drive. In spite of the name, "all-season" tires are not winter tires, and will not provide you with traction when you need it most.


Winter tires are built differently – their grooves and siping are specifically designed to evacuate snow, water, and slush. Because of this, you'll be making maximum contact with the road surface, allowing you to better handle your vehicle. Snow tires provide a lot more grip than regular tires, Lovegrove said, and when things are unpredictable on the road due to snow, high volumes of drivers and changing weather conditions, you're better off safe than sorry.

About Tire Care & Maintenance

Tire Pressure

Maintaining optimum tire pressure helps to keep your vehicle running smoothly and safely. Properly inflated tires can:

  • Prevent excessive tread wear and extend the life of your tires.
  • Enhance handling, traction, and the stopping ability of your vehicle.
  • Improve fuel economy by reducing friction, and in turn, lower emissions.

Tire Rotation

Front tires generally wear faster than rear tires, rotation is an important part of regular tire care.

  • Ensures more even wear.
  • Extends the life of your tires.
  • Improves braking and handling performance.
  • Tires should be rotated as recommended by your Toyota vehicle maintenance schedule.

Tread Wear

As you drive, the tire tread gradually wears away, which impacts both traction and braking time.

  • A simple way to check your tire tread is to insert a quarter into one of the grooves. If you can see the tip of the caribou’s nose, then you may need new tires.
  • Our Professional Technicians can check and record tire tread depth, and examine tires for damage or wear to better determine if new tires are needed.

Tire Storage

We offer the convenience of storage for your winter and summer tires - so that your tires are right at hand when tire changeover season begins.

Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment involves an adjustment of your Toyota’s suspension system so the tires meet the road at the proper angle for your vehicle. Benefits include:

  • A smoother ride.
  • Helps your tires perform properly and last longer.
  • Improves handling and keeps your vehicle from pulling in one direction.
  • Wheel alignment should be checked at least once a year. Misaligned wheels can also cause suspension issues and an increase in fuel consumption.
