Technical Questions

Queries relating to the technical side shopping for tires such as sizes, ratings and tire information.

Quick Answer: When determining the appropriate tire size for your vehicle, inspect the sticker located on the inside of the driver's door jamb. This sticker provides detailed information about the recommended tire size dimensions for both the front and rear wheels. It's essential to cross-reference this information with the current tire size on your vehicle to ensure a match.
Quick Answer: The tire load rating, commonly referred to as the load index, is a numeric code found on the sidewall of a tire. This code serves as a crucial indicator, specifying the maximum weight that each tire can safely bear when maintained at the appropriate inflation level.
Quick Answer: A tire speed rating is a code or letter associated with a tire that indicates the maximum speed the tire can safely sustain over a prolonged period. The speed rating is determined through laboratory testing under specific conditions.
Quick Answer: It's highly recommended to use the exact tire size recommended for your car. However, in a pinch the tire width and aspect ratio can be changed slightly and still fit on your rim. Although this will still work, keep in mind it may have adverse effects on the performance of your car. Also bear in mind that the rim size should never be changed.

General Advice

General questions often asked by customers regarding tire use, maintenance and best practices. 

Quick Answer: In Alberta, only all-season tires that display the three peak mountain snowflake symbol are suitable to drive all year around. If a tire does not display this symbol - even if it's all-season, all-terrain or mud-terrain - the rubber compound will freeze in cold temperatures and traction will be lost. Conversely, tires designed specifically for winter cannot be used in the summer as their soft rubber compound will degrade quickly and be liable for blow-outs in higher temperatures.
Quick Answer: In Alberta, an all-season tire should be used in winter only if it displays the three peaks mountain snowflake symbol. An all-season tire which displays this symbol are known as all-weather tires and will perform adequately in snowy conditions. All-season tires without this symbol - even those M+S (mud and snow) certified - will not provide adequate performance in extreme cold conditions. Ideally, winter tires should be used in place of all-weather or all-season tires.
