Winter Tires – 5 things to know

Quebec’s automobile insurance board, the SAAQ, requires all taxi and passenger vehicles, as well as mopeds, motorized scooters and motorcycles to be outfitted with winter tires from Dec. 1st to March 15th inclusively.

Fail to do so, and you’ll face up to $300 in fines.

In the spirit of the season, here are five things to know about your winter tires, according to George Iny of the Automobile Protection Association.

1. Tire lifespan

Tires can generally last through three Montreal winters, but if you don’t use them often they can be used for four or five.

2. Wearing them out?

Don’t worry if there is no snow. Your tires are not wearing out faster.  Daytime temps of 7 to 10 degrees are cold enough to have your tires on.

3. Be careful buying online

The key to buying winter tires is to check the manufacturing date. It’s a code with four numbers representing the date they were made. If you don’t understand what these numbers mean, you should not be buying used tires online.  Always ask how old they are, ask for a receipt and check the manufacturer’s date.

4. Storage

Always store your tires in a plastic bag and lay them flat if you can. The rubber can deteriorate and wear out.

5. Check your tire pressure

If nothing else, the obligatory winter-tire change rule ensures that drivers are checking their tire pressure at least twice a year. As for the pressure level, you shouldn’t go by the number on your tire, which is the maximum level and not vehicle specific. Check inside your car door for a yellow sticker. if you can’t find it, look in the owner’s manual.
