Keep reading to learn which ones we chose and why!

1. Michelin X-Ice Snow

Designed to combat harsh Canadian winters, Michelin has engineered the X-Ice Snow winter tires with state-of-the-art winterized technology. These tires offer two types of full-depth 3D sipes, which act like claws that bite into ice and snow, increasing traction and enhancing brake response time.

The X-Ice Snow winter tires have v-shaped tread patterns with an increased void ratio, which reduces the risk of hydroplaning and skidding in slippery conditions. These designs increase the driver’s overall vehicle control, regardless of snowy and icy surfaces. The soft rubber compounds are made to resist freezing and still maintain traction even on the chilliest Canadian winter day.

The best part about Michelin’s X-Ice Snow tires is that they are supported by the Michelin Promise Plan: a 60-day satisfaction guarantee, roadside assistance, and a limited warranty of 60,000 km. We have dozens of different sizes of X-Ice Snow tires available for passenger cars, minivans, SUVs, and crossovers.

2. Bridgestone WS90

Bridgestone is a known leader in winter tires, renowned for its top-of-the-line ice control technology, and the Blizzark WS90 winter tires are no exception. These tires will provide drivers with certainty in the most uncertain weather conditions. Equipped with the patented Multicell™ technology, the WS90 has improved tread patterns with exceptional performance when maneuvering through slushy, icy and snowy conditions.

The Bridgestone WS90 winter tires give Canadian drivers the confidence they need to tackle the scary winter conditions, like black ice or a white-out. Bridgestone consistently makes top-tier, high-quality tires to ensure you will never get stuck out in the cold again.

Perfect for cars or minivans, these tires are dependable, reliable and well-suited for parents driving their kids home from late-night hockey games. Dependability matters, and the Blizzark WS90s provide customers extra comfort and security when it matters most.

3. iLink L-ZEAL56 A/S

For people who live in a city with ever-changing weather conditions, the iLink L-ZEAL56 all-season tires are a fantastic choice. These tires guarantee a first-rate performance, regardless of the weather conditions you confront. From dry summer pavement to icy winter roads, these tires have an all-season compound that enhances performance in all conditions.

The L-ZEAL56 A/S tires provide luxurious, high-performance handling for drivers all year. Cut with an asymmetric tread pattern, the tire’s siping details increase the car’s high-speed controllability by upgrading the number of biting edges that grip the road’s surface. The circumferential grooves quickly disperse water and slush, preventing hydroplaning and build-up as you drive.

When reviewing the specs: all-weather traction, mud and snow rated, high-speed controllability and reduced noise levels, choosing the L-ZEAL56 A/S is a no-brainer. The all-season compound prevents the rubber from freezing, maintaining the tire’s flexible traction regardless of weather conditions.
