Making Winter Driving Easier
Winter driving can be challenging for even the most experienced drivers. Poor visibility and the presence of snow, slush and ice are additional hazards
we normally don't have to deal with. Having the correct tires can make driving in winter conditions easier.
Identifying Winter TiresBoth the all-season Mud & Snow (M+S) tires and the mountain/snowflake tires meet the requirements for winter tire designation in B.C.
To be considered a winter tire, a M+S or a mountain/snowflake tire must also have at least 3.5mm of tread depth.
Tell your local tire retailer what kind of road and weather conditions you drive in, so you get tires that are best suited for your needs.
All-seasons M+S (Mud & Snow) Tires
M+S tires are a safe option if you only encounter winter conditions on a limited basis and are prepared to drive with added cared and caution if winter conditions are encountered.
If you live or travel in an area where you would normally and regularly expect snow, ice and slush, ICBC recommends using four matched winter tire that carry the mountain/snowflake symbol (pictured here).
Mountain/snowflake tires offer a higher lever of traction in harsh winter conditions, and receive their special designation for adhering to a performance- based standard (developed by the U.S. Rubber Manufacturers Association and the Rubber Association of Canada). They are the best winter tires available.
Routes Requiring Winter Tires
Certain highways in B.C. require cars and light trucks to use winter tires from October 1 to March31 such as our very own Sea to Sky Highway. Signs are posted on these designated highways to advise drivers where and when the winter tires are required. These routes are also posted in the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure website. Vehicles not equipped with winter tires are prohibited from travelling past the signs.
