When to Changeover Your Winter Tires

Posted On April 14, 2016

Wondering when you should be changing over your winter tires? Well, it varies on what part of the country you live.

Albertans know that it often snows on the May Long Weekend – ruining their plans of starting the camping season – so they will often wait until after the middle of May to changeover their tires. Likewise, in the Yukon, Nunavut, and Northwest Territories, it often snows until mid-May as well, so they keep their all-season tires stored for even longer. Some provinces even have set winter tire laws. For example, in British Columbia, the law is that after March 31 winter tires can be removed. In Quebec, winter tires must remain on vehicles until March 15. All other provinces do not have set winter tire laws but it is important to understand when the best time to remove your winter tires will be:

Overall, for the best driving conditions, all-season tires should be on your vehicle whenever the weather is above 7°C and there is no snow or ice on the ground and winter tires should be on your vehicle whenever the weather is below 7°C and there is snow and ice on the ground.
