Frequently Asked Questions

At Wheels on Wheels, we try to make mobile tire service simple and straightforward. If you have a question that isn’t listed below, please feel free to contact us.

Winter tires have tread patterns specifically designed to dig down and bite into the snow and ice. They are also made from softer rubber compounds that retain their flexibility in cold weather, allowing the tire to better conform to the surface of the road. (Regular tires tend to get hard and brittle in cold temperatures.) As a result, winter tires keep a better grip on snowy and icy surfaces than regular all-season or summer tires. Needless to say, grip is critical – not just to avoid getting stuck, but to ensure that the car can stop and steer safely in wintery road conditions. Life-saving technologies such as antilock brakes, electronic stability control and all-wheel-drive work optimally if the tires can maintain their grip on the road surface. Even on a cold winter day with no snow on the ground, your vehicle will handle better with winter tires vs. any all-season tire.
Despite their name, all-season tires are not your safest option for winter driving. While they are designed to perform in all sorts of road and weather conditions, they are not optimized for any one specific condition, and certainly not the diverse Canadian climate. All-season tires are generally made from harder materials that don’t conform to the road surface in lower temperatures as well as winter tires do. Think of all-season tires as sneakers, and winter tires as heavy-duty snow boots. Of course it’s possible to walk down a snowy, icy sidewalk wearing your sneakers; however, it’s a lot easier and much safer to do it with proper snow boots.
If you feel your vehicle and/or steering wheel vibrating when driving – this will be especially noticeable when cruising at highway speeds – it’s probably time to have your tires balanced. Tires can become unbalanced for a variety of reasons, including tread wear, adverse road conditions, and any physical damage (interior or exterior) the tire may have incurred. The majority of car owners don’t rotate their tires as often as they should, and even fewer take the time to have their tires balanced. With that being said, the key to tire longevity is regular rotations and balances.

If you are experiencing unwanted vibrations in your steering wheel or footwell, only Wheels on Wheels® can come to you to diagnose and rebalance your tires with our Hunter Road Force Balancing machine.
