All-Season Tires in West Oakville, 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 service for both our cars. Honest quotes and advice compared with our experience at a larger chain service centre. We were able to make service appointments promptly. The staff are friendly and respond quickly to questions regarding the work required. Complimentary shuttle service is a plus. We definitely recommend Sils.

Carrie McKinnon Feb 2, 2024

I’ve been a customer of this automotive repair shop since 2012 not only do I use it for my company Service Truck, but also for three of my family personal vehicles. The entire team from the owner all the way to the last person to deliver my vehicles always provide 100% transparency And complete details to any questions I have. They go beyond in searching for the best quality parts along with competitive pricing. Their handy customer loaner vehicles are a great touch when you have a few errands to run while they do repairs. I recommend as many of my customers, family and friends to continue using their services and for any new people I encounter who need automotive repair services

Rob NA Feb 2, 2024

From Anna Bedek: I have been going to Sil's Auto for many years and always go back. They do a awesome job on the car's health and the staff are always happy to help. I will continue to go to them as long as I have a car. They are the BEST.

John Bedek Feb 2, 2024

5 stars as always. Done when they said for what they said it would cost

Mark McCrory Feb 2, 2021

This was my first time taking my van in for service. I was very impressed with how friendly and detailed they were. The shuttle service was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend Sil's auto care. I won't hesitate to go back when the need arises.

Maria Harris Jan 1, 2024

Excellent customer care, support and technical team. From the moment I arrived and were completely transparent with state of my vehicle. I will definitely recommend them and will use their services for futures maintenance. 👍🏻

Sebastian Neyra Vera Tudela (D34D Skrim) Jan 1, 2024

I recommend Sil's to everyone I know.

Richard Guest Jan 1, 2024

We had the good fortune of stumbling upon Sil’s yesterday. We are very grateful we did. We were extremely impressed with the professional staff. The service we received was outstanding. I would highly recommend Sil’s Autoshop to friends and family. Excellent service from the booking to the after service follow up. Thank you!

Bernadette Gillis Jan 1, 2024

My vehicle needed major engine work, and as always, the team at Sil's was fantastic. First class work, and they kept me informed of the status along the way. Highly recommended.

Charles Muller May 5, 2023

very thorough

Scott Kennery Jan 1, 2024

I am so happy that I chose Sil's Auto Centre to get my vehicle fixed. Both of my rear signal lights, daytime running lights and marker lights were not working. Susan provided me constant update and inspection report completed by a mechanic. Before starting the actual repair Susan provided a thorough explanation on what the issues were and it was fixed perfectly.

Tony Lee Jan 1, 2024

Caught a nail in a tire New Years Day as well as a part that was fixed on warranty and the great team at Sil’s had me back up and running right away on the January 2. Fast service

Peter J Thompson Jan 1, 2021

I had a great experience getting my car safetied at Sil’s. All the employees were pleasant and helpful, and they didn’t try to upsell me or try to convince me my car has a problem when I was pretty sure it’s fine. I’ll tell you where NOT to go…Mr. Lube on Speers. They told me my rear brakes are gone and I need a $750 replacement. Sil’s is the second mechanic to confirm that my brakes are fine. It’s great when you find businesses like Sil’s who you can trust. The complimentary shuttle ride was very much appreciated too.

Louisa Bauman Dec 12, 2023

My experience with Sil’s auto care centre was outstanding in every way. My initial call was answered by Susan, who is efficient, friendly and helpful. I took in my car, a Lexus hybrid, to have the wheels torqued and met the owner Carlo, who again was very pleasant and helpful. He said he would check the car over and look after it for me. When I took the car in the communication with me, either by phone or email, was excellent. Their estimate for work needing doing was prompt and they gave me time to consider before the work was done. After the work was successfully completed. I was picked up at my home to go and collect my car. I will certainly be using Sil’s auto care again.

Valerie Duffy Dec 12, 2023

Excellent service, best I have ever experienced in vehicle servicing. It used to be just 5 bays, but with the change of location it is much bigger. Thanks for the nice waiting room Carlo!

Keith Lockhart Jan 1, 2014

Fabulous service as always. Live the crew at Sil’s. Thanks all

Bonnie Kuehl Mar 3, 2023

We like and trust Sil's as do many in our community FB group. 👍👍

Steve Taylor Dec 12, 2023

Sue at Sil’s is amazing! And the whole team is wonderful, knowledgeable and transparent and I once again received excellent service from their team. I never hesitate to give them a call for any of my car concerns.

Manon Boyle May 5, 2023

Every aspect of my first visit there was so professional. My questions were answered so that I understood. I was listened to and respected I was offered a shuttle, a place to wait, all provincial guidelines being followed. I felt safe and like I had finally found a trustworthy shop. I can’t believe this gem was here the whole time right under my nose. No wonder you have been in business all this time you gain the trust of your customers. Great Job.

Michelle Giacometti Feb 2, 2021

Quality work friendly, honest and great workmanship

Dolores Soca Jul 7, 2021

Always good communication and updates on issues and great service overall!!!!

f v - t.o Nov 11, 2023

Sil's ACC is my go to now. They are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. They provide a web based summary report that you can view and decide what work you want to proceed with and which you want to hold off on for a later time, which i find very helpful.

Dave Degrassi Dec 12, 2020

Service does not get any better than at Sil’s! Everyone is exceptionally helpful and the service people do an excellent job! I have recommended many people to go to Sils and now they are recommending others.

Jean Eckhart May 5, 2022

From power steering problems to rodent control these guys are the best.

Heather B Nov 11, 2023

Will definitely use Sil's again. Tommy was very helpful, gave us regular updates, worked with us to have the best value solution for our audi. Our car was ready on time and very clean when returned. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a well run auto shop.

George P Nov 11, 2023

Great experience at Sil's, as usual. Staff were friendly, efficient and the whole process was smooth, and the work done was perfect.

Malcolm and June Surycz Oct 10, 2023

Sil's Auto Care Centre is the only auto shop you'll ever need to go to. Their staff are not only friendly and professional, but are also extremely knowledgeable and honest. I had my car serviced for a seasonal maintenance inspection and oil and filter changer service. Not only were they thorough with their job, but went beyond my expectations in providing a detailed report, loaner car and an interior and exterior clean. I'll definitely be returning for any auto needs and recommending Sil's to my family and friends. Thanks especially to Susan for her exceptional sevice!

Jeff Oct 10, 2023

I have always been a "bring it to the dealer" guy. After my dealer could not fit me in for immediate service (flat tire fix), I tried "Sil's". Briefly... I would specifically like to commend my mechanic, John... who came up with imaginative fixes for TWO (other) unconventional issues with my car. And the best part, there was a nominal charge on my bill for these. After this visit, Sil's has earned my "repeat business".

Paul Finlay Oct 10, 2023

A very good job for fixing my car thank you

Earle Angelo Valerio Oct 10, 2023

I use the services of Sil's Auto for the upkeep of my car and am always reassured by their thorough and professional service. I like their detailed invoices which also include a Deferred Service section which prepares me for what the next service should be to keep my car roadworthy. I appreciate their friendly shuttle service with Tim and the patient answers I receive to all of my questions. On one occasion I had an emergency problem with a window that would not close and it was fixed with a smile and no charge.

Dolores Wielgus Oct 10, 2022

Excellent timely service , always.
