All-Season Tires in Downtown, ON

All Season TiresAll-season tires are an important part of your vehicle; after all, they keep your vehicle rolling for 3 seasons of the year. Learn more about the benefits and features of all-season tires and how Sils Auto Care Centre can help you choose the right set for your vehicle.

What Are All Season Tires? 

All-season tires are an excellent choice for drivers living in regions with moderate weather conditions like spring, summer, and fall. They offer a versatile blend of traction, handling, and durability, making them a popular choice for drivers who don’t want to swap tires with each change of season.

However, while all-season tires perform well in various weather conditions, they can fall short in extremely cold temperatures, especially in Canadian winters, where temperatures drop below -20°C. In such cases, winter tires are a better choice as they offer superior traction and handling in snow, ice, and cold weather conditions.

Therefore, most drivers use all-season tires when the weather is consistently above 7 degrees Celsius. In this case, drivers must store and switch their tires based on the season. This means they must purchase at least two sets of tires and stay mindful of their tire condition in relation to changing weather and road conditions.

Are All-Season Tires Good In The Rain?

All-season tires are designed to perform well in wet conditions, including rain. These tires have a unique tread pattern and rubber compound designed to channel water away from the tire’s surface, providing better grip and traction in wet conditions.

Additionally, all-season tires are engineered to balance grip and handling in various weather conditions, including wet and dry surfaces. However, it’s essential to remember that not all all-season tires are created equal, and some models may perform better than others in the rain. Therefore, choosing a high-quality all-season tire from a reputable brand is crucial and ensuring that they are well-maintained and replaced when they begin to wear out.

What Type Of Vehicles Can Use All-Season Tires? 

All-season tires are a popular choice for a wide range of vehicles, including cars, SUVs, crossovers, and pickup trucks. They are by far the most common type of tire on vehicles in Canada, and every vehicle has a suitable all-season tire.

How Long Do All-Season Tires Last?

A good quality all-season tire should last 80,000 to 135,000 km or three-to-five years for the average driver. Of course, this depends on driving style, road condition, and maintenance.

Factors That Influence How Long All-Season Tires Will Last

Several factors influence how long a tire can be used:

Tire Age

Regardless of tread depth, your tire should be replaced if it is over five years old. This is because the rubber compounds deteriorate over time, which can lead to dry rot. Tires with dry rot are more prone to flats and tread separation.

Tire manufacturers always recommend replacing tires that are five to ten years old. However, most drivers in some areas will wear out a tire tread before that age.

The Vehicle 

Think it or not, your vehicle significantly impacts how long your tires will last. Trucks and SUVs put more weight on tires than sedans, so if your vehicle is not equipped with the proper tires, the tires may wear out faster than expected.

Poor Driving Behaviours 

Poor driving habits, such as sudden acceleration, cornering, and braking, increase the stress on tires, causing them to wear out quickly. By avoiding such driving habits, drivers can significantly increase the life of their vehicle’s tires.

Weather Conditions 

Driving in snow, ice, and rain can cause your tires to wear out faster because they must work harder to maintain traction. Purchasing tires designed for specific weather conditions can give drivers extra traction and control while providing good treadwear.

Major Benefits Of All-Season Tires 

In general, all-season tires offer several advantages that may outweigh some of their inherent limitations for many buyers:

  • Good traction on wet surfaces thanks to complex tread patterns that help move water away from the tire’s underside.
  • Effective in temperatures as low as 7 degrees celsius.
  • Longer lifespan than tires designed for specific conditions (some can last up to 130,000km and be replaced with as little as 2/32nds of an inch of tread remaining).
  • Suitable for nearly any type of vehicle, from sedans to SUVs to minivans.

Great experience with the staff at Sil's Auto care centre. From the moment I called to make and appointment to the follow up calls on the service amd then pick up it was all great. They are all very friendly and kind and respectful, cleaned and vacuumed my car before pick up, there isn't anything bad to say about that people other than if u need a place to take ur car for service...I highly recommend this place! Thank you Sils Auto!!

Since 1986 at their Clarkson Go Station location we've been using Sil's. That makes it 38 YEARS of TOP NOTCH vehicle service. I appreciate how they show and talk out the car issues & repairs in a way I can understand. They are all knowledgeable, skilled, professional & friendly. Corey & John are amoung the amazing mechanics. Susan and Tommy front desk charm. Carlo also cares about giving back to the community. These guys are EXPERTS in their field. Give them a try!

Sil's is not the cheapest garage around, I've been to too many of those places haha. Instead, Sil's is a reasonable price and offers WAY BETTER service and professionalism. They always give me a detailed rundown of whatever they've done and whatever might be worth doing soon, and I NEVER feel like I am being sold unneeded work. Service is always friendly, wait times are clear, and my car comes back vacuumed and clean. Plus, I trust them. Don't try to save a few bucks when it comes to maintaining your car - Sil's is 100% worth it.

Friendly and welcoming experience at Sil's Auto. We have a wheelchair van we hope to use to drive my dad around that needed an airbag light diagnostic. We were told by a few different mechanics that they couldn't diagnose the problem, then when I brought it in to Sil's they diagnosed it the day I called within 15 minutes of arriving there. Wow!! And did this as a courtesy, not charging me, just helping me out. Would recommend Sil's Auto to anyone in the area, thank you again!!

I wish we’d found them earlier! We’re in the neighbourhood and took up their complimentary drop and pickup by Tim who was great. The car service was really good - reports were thorough and informative and after service clean up was a bonus! Customer service was fabulous and we’ll be back with our second vehicle very soon
