The numbers prove troubling - with Consumer Reports noting that approximately half of Canadian drivers believe their all-season tires will suffice for winter. There is no need, they claim, to make a change. It's too great a hassle with too little a reward. Our Service Department disagrees. The value of winter tires has been (repeatedly) proven, with their seasonal-specific designs affording them improved grippage in sleet, snow, and slush; and, when comparing responses between vehicles properly equipped with these options and those that weren't, Consumer Reports found a clear increase in traction performance.
