For drivers in Alberta, with the exception of the mountainous areas where winter tires or tire chains are certainly required, all-season tires might just provide all the traction you’ll need.With designs that offer better grip than summer tires in wet and snowy conditions, all-season tire treads make getting around much more effective overall. Additionally, there’s the practicality of not having to change tires constantly, which is certainly nice for those who can’t be bothered with the switch. All-seasons are a smart choice for drivers in Alberta where the warmer seasons are moderate, and considering how quickly the conditions can change, all-seasons also offer a great deal of versatility.
All-seasons are commonly pre-installed on most new cars, trucks and SUVs. They balance road noise, fuel economy and braking proficiency with a great tread life. All-seasons are designed for most city driving in North America, but are not necessarily meant for snow, temperatures below zero, or high-speed performance handling and braking.
Generally, if you are going to drive year-round with all-season tires, it’s best to live in an area where you don’t expect a ton of snow or overly slippery conditions. If, for example, you happen to enjoy driving up to the ski hills in winter, then you might want to consider getting winter tires for the added winter safety they offer.
