Used Tires Manitoba

Tires are the backbone of your vehicle in Manitoba. Tires, whether new or used, provide traction, steering, braking, load support, and shock absorption to give you a comfortable and smooth ride. They basically consist of two parts, the tread and the body. These two provide shock absorption and cushion as the wheels roll on the road. The tread maintains traction while the body provides vehicle support. It is recommended that you always choose the same brand, type, size, and design when buying them. If you want to buy new ones, it is recommended that buy the all-season type. If you opt to go for used ones, you have to be a bit more cautious. It is really not a bad idea to buy a used set of tires if that is what your pocket is allowing. Purchasing used ones will obviously save you money. In fact, you can get good quality used ones if you know what things to look for.

What to Look For While Buying Used Tires In Manitoba

Basically there are 5 types of tires.

ALL SEASON - These tires are aimed for all four seasons, except heavy snow season. These tires do not have the proper rubber mixture and proper grip for the traction to be used in cold weather.

STUDDED SNOW TIRES - These are for snowy winter conditions. They are studded with metal particles embedded in them thus allowing better traction in snow and ice. The disadvantages are increased noise and decreased traction on dry and wet surfaces.

SNOW TIRES - These tires for heavy snow conditions. These types of tires are manufactures with special rubber components to have more flexibility in heavy snowy weather. Snow tires have special grip blocks pattern for better traction.

WINTER TIRES - These tires are designed for better traction in snowy and icy conditions. Their grip patterns and tire components are specially designed for winter conditions. These tires are less noisy and perform better not only in snow, but also in wet conditions.

MUD TIRES - Mud tires are wide with bigger lugs. These lugs allow better traction at every rotation. These tires make very loud noise on the normal road. Mud tires are also good for rock climbing, sand and unpacked snow but do not perform well in icy conditions or in rain.
