After a couple of trips to Edmonton last week, I sure could tell the difference between my ‘All-Season’ radials and my Winter radials. Over the past week, I lost track of the vehicles I saw in the ditch. Winter tires will reduce your stopping distance and allow you to maintain better control of your vehicle while on slippery surfaces. I recommend purchasing a second set of steel rims to allow for easy change-up between seasons. If you commute, do yourself a favour and invest in some good quality winter tires.
Here are a few places to get them in and around Carstairs:
