YOUR LEXUS WINTER TIRE GUIDE
Posted on October 12, 2021
We know our guests understand the value of winter tires. Especially those who are familiar with just how icy our Edmonton streets can get during the coldest months. But knowing when to purchase your new winter tires and have them installed can be a tricky song-and-dance. Especially with invariable Alberta weather.
This guide will explain when to buy new winter tires for your Lexus, when to make your winter tire appointment and how to take advantage of Lexus Tire Price Match — an exceptional offer that guarantees you the best price on winter tires in Edmonton. If you want to increase your winter tire knowledge, this post is for you.
WHEN TO BUY WINTER TIRES
Chances are you probably already own a set of winter tires, but how do you know when they need to be replaced? We recommend checking your Winter Tire Tread Guide below to evaluate your tires with.
WINTER TIRE TREAD GUIDE
Brand New – 12/32”
25% Worn – 9.5/32”
50% Worn – 7/32”
75% Worn – 4.5/32”
100% Worn – 2/32”
Transport Canada says that tires with a tread of 5/32” or less should not be driving during the winter — ideally it is smart to replace them around the 50% worn mark. The more worn down the tread, the less effective they are for gripping on slippery surfaces.
WHEN TO MAKE YOUR WINTER TIRE APPOINTMENT
Winter tires are made from a specific type of rubber material that becomes more malleable when the temperature drops. To be specific, winter tires work best in 7 degrees celsius and colder. Which means when Edmonton experiences these temperatures at least 2 consecutive days in a row, you want to make sure your Lexus is outfitted with winter tires.
WINTER TIRE RECOMMENDATIONS
You know you need winter tires, but do you know just how much better they are on icy streets? In addition to being made from specialized rubber that digs into snow better at lower temperatures, they also feature a unidirectional groove tread that works to push slush and snow out of the way of your Lexus.
Every detail of your Lexus was designed with thought and intention — including your tire size. Our engineers considered everything from performance and safety to different terrain, climate and efficiency factors. When purchasing your winter tires, we recommend choosing the original tire size of your Lexus.
