Why You Need Four Winter Tires

October 31st, 2019 by

Have you been hitting the snooze button on your winter tires? This is your wakeup call! Now is the time to do it! 


Do you need a new set of winter tires? Make sure to buy all four! Driving with two tires are ineffective, especially in Winnipeg. Driving on slippery roads with only two winter tires will cause you to either understeer to oversteer. 


Two winter tires only on the front cause oversteering. When you oversteer, the back of your vehicle will slide out from behind you, twisting your vehicle. This means the front of your vehicle will be facing the direction you intended, but the back of your car will have rotated. Never install winter tires only to the back of your vehicle. This will result in a total lack of control of your vehicle.

Two winter tires only on the back cause understeering. This means when you attempt to steer, your tires may not be able to respond and move your vehicle only slightly. It is possible to drive with only two winter tires on the back, but it is very dangerous to do so.
