Frequently asked questions to our Docteur du Pare-Brise experts:

Summer Tires, 4 seasons Tires & Winter Tires

What are the differences and when should we get them installed?

  • Summer tires are designed for maximum performance in hot weather conditions. Summer tires should be removed when the ambient temperature remains 7°C or less.
  • All-season tires are also designed to provide maximum performance in hot weather conditions as well as reliable performance in moderate winter conditions. All season tires should be replaced with approved winter tires under severe winter conditions (when the ambient temperature is constantly below freezing and/or when there is regular snowfall or freezing rain).
  • Winter tires will provide maximum performance in cold temperatures in severe winter conditions. To reduce the risk of premature wear, winter tires should be removed when the ambient temperature remains above 7°C.

What is the normal life of a tire?

  • You can’t predict when tires should be replaced based solely on their date of manufacture. You have to consider mileage, type of driving you do and other factors. However, the older a tire is, the more likely it may need to be replaced. Although the vast majority of tires are replaced before they reach the age of 10 years, it is recommended that all tires of this age or more be replaced as a simple precautionary measure, although they may appear to be in good condition and have not yet reached the legal wear limit.
  • The tire manufacturing date is written on the sidewall of the tire. Consumers simply need to locate the DOT code on the sidewall of the tire. This code begins with the letters DOT and ends with the week and year of manufacture. For example, a DOT code ending in "2209" indicates a tire manufactured in the 22nd week (May) of 2009.

What is the best way to store my tires?

Tires should be stored in a cool place, out of direct sunlight, and should not be stored too close to heat sources. Exposing tires to these elements for long periods of time can cause cracking due to the breakdown of waxes and emollients protecting the rubber against oxidation and weather conditions. In addition, the surfaces on which the tires are stored must be clean and free from grease, gasoline or other substances which could cause deterioration of the rubber. If the tires are mounted on alloy rims, make sure that the inflation pressure does not exceed the recommended air pressure. Some Docteur du Pare-Brise stores also offer tire storage, ask your local store.
