All Season Tires in Elora, ON

All Season Tires

Think about where you will be driving and how often. If you have an SUV that needs to drive smoothly in town but must also go off-road regularly, you’ll need a tire brand that is more suited for all-terrain with the best traction rating and tread-wear warranty. Or perhaps you drive a passenger car that spends almost all its time in an urban environment? In this case, you might want to focus more on braking capabilities, fuel efficiency and hydroplaning performance.

A Detailed Guide to All-Season Tires

Typically, all-season tires refer to the combined form of summer and winter tires that gives your vehicle extra strength. These tires fall under the hybrid category. Nonetheless, if you live in a region with mild weather, you might consider sticking with all-seasons. However, they are still not a good choice because you may lose some grip in warmer weather, and the rubber compound may harden in the winter.

Are All-Season Tires Good for Rain?

The advantages of summer and winter tires are combined in all-season tires. However, to maintain their signature well-roundedness, all-season tires sacrifice some characteristics for more extreme conditions such as heavy rain, snow, or significant road icing.

When driving in the rain, winter tires outperform all-season tires, but only if temperatures are between 0 and 7 degrees Celsius (32-45 degrees Fahrenheit). All-season tires are becoming the better option in higher temperatures. This is because the rubber in most all-season tires hardens below 7 degrees Celsius (45 degrees Fahrenheit), causing it to be slippier above that temperature.

Important factors to keep in mind when buying all-season tires for your vehicles in Elora, ON

All-season tires are meant for use for most of the year. Knowing the appropriate tires for various vehicles and regions can foster road and passenger safety. With all-season tires, you will be confident in a mix of conditions and terrains. They are suitable for most vehicles, from minivans to SUVs to sedans.  Some factors to keep in mind when purchasing are:

Tread Pattern

All-season tires come in three tread kinds: Asymmetrical, Symmetrical and Unidirectional. Because of their groove patterns, symmetrical all-season tire treads last longer. These tires wear down evenly, allowing their tread life to last longer.

Asymmetrical tread patterns are more commonly found in muscle cars and sports cars. This is due to the asymmetrical patterns having a more durable grip when driving at higher speeds.

Unidirectional treads are standard on most vehicles and are designed to move in a single direction. They must be rotated more frequently than the others to avoid premature wear.

When shopping for all-season tires, consider the tread patterns based on your needs and your vehicle type.

Tire Size

Tires for various vehicle sizes are assembled to provide effective results. You must consult your owner’s manual to determine the appropriate size for your vehicle. You can also go to an online size checker to get it by searching in a database. If the tire is an OEM (original equipment manufacturer), the tire size is printed on the sidewall.

Shock absorption

Driving on tires that provide adequate shock absorption is an excellent way to maintain your vehicle and have an enjoyable riding experience. Your vehicle may be damaged if it lacks shock absorption capacity.

Tires that can absorb the harsh bumps in the road will provide a smooth ride and keep you from being bounced around and last longer. Tires will soften the impact of riding on bumpy roads if well-designed.

High Durability

The best way to consider durability is to consult your vehicle’s warranty to confirm the maintenance demands provided by the manufacturer. Tires need to be rotated often, but if the tire’s rubber is of high quality and the tread is even, the tire will be more durable and last much longer.

Advantages & Disadvantages of All-season Tires

All-season Tires have the following Advantages and Disadvantages:

Pros

  • Economic: no change every season
  • A good compromise between winter and summer tires

Cons

  • Less efficient on icy roads
  • Overconsumption of fuel
  • Noisier tires
  • Rapid wear
  • Longer braking distance
  • Higher purchase price

How long should all-season tires last in Canada?

Well, it’s harder to say, but in Canada, a tire’s useful life is about 10 years, according to most tire manufacturers. However, some experts recommend having them inspected and considering replacement at six years. Tire age matters because the rubber starts drying out over time, causing it to harden and lose its grip.

Yesterday I went in to get an oil change and switch out my snow tires at True Auto Care. I have been going there since I moved to Fergus 4 years ago, and there customer service and quality of work has always been exemplary (a nice change after having lived in the GTA). They're also very accommodating around scheduling when last minute changes need to be made.

Good and timely service! I was called about a worn serpentine belt, given the price and asked if I wanted True Auto to repair. I did, and they charged what was quoted. I recommend True Auto! 👍

Jack Moesker Mar 3, 2016

My Acura broke down near Fergus the other day- I was able to limp it into the shop. They took care of it the next day (surprisingly quick!) which made me even happier! Even more appreciated was the texting feature- they gave me the breakdown on my car and the other issues it may be having. Very timely and efficient in my opinion. There was no nonsense, no up-selling, and no pressure tactics- part of why I am so impressed. Can’t say that for every shop out there. Facility is also very clean and up to date. I have happily referred my sister and brother in law (who live in Fergus) to this auto centre.

Jamie Martinello Jan 1, 2023

I called this morning to get a crack in my windshield repaired, new tires, and also brighter head lights installed. It was all completed the same day. They were professional from start to finish. I will be taking my truck in the future to True Auto Care.

Always amazing service, I have been coming here since moving to Fergus in 2016, and will continue to do so! Kyle was so helpful.

Victoria Heppolette Nov 11, 2022

Friendly and informative staff. The technician told me that my vehicle didn't need the service that I called about. They could have taken advantage but instead, they were honest and forthright. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Jacquie D'Abbenigno Nov 11, 2022

Thanks Jenna and team for providing a quick and efficient service and tyre change while doing a full inspection to decide on any possible future maintenance. Great work!

Back in 2007 I purchased a brand new Mini Cooper convertible. During the warranty period I dealt with the Mini dealership. In August 2012 there was a noise from under the car. Turned out to be a muffler. This was my first interaction with True Auto Care. The muffler came with a lifetime warranty. Fast forward to August 2022 when a new noise appeared from under the car. After removing a couple rotten pipe sections and replacing with new sleeves the exhaust problem was solved. That was a span of 10 years. Over that time I have trusted my Mini to no one else but True Auto Care for all its necessary service. In a week my wife and I will be moving from Elora, where we've lived for the last 40 years, to Kitchener (we jokingly call it East Berlin.) The move in no means means that we will be searching for a new company to service our vehicles; no, we will continue to trust True Auto Care and will return to them for any service required, even if we have to have the vehicle's towed to Fergus. BTW, that muffler on the Mini is still doing its job. . — Brian Cameron
