Are your tires starting to lose grip, or have you noticed wear in the rubber? It’s high time to consider a tire change. Although by law, the tread thickness must be a minimum of 2/32″, it is strongly recommended, for added safety, to change your tires as soon as it reaches 4/32″.

When choosing the summer or winter tires that suit your needs, you should also consider another important point: your tires’ size. You will also find on this page more information on this subject and a complete list of the brands of quality tires we offer.

How do I measure the thickness of the tire tread?

When you change your tires, you can rely on the wear indicators located at the bottom of the tread grooves (their position is indicated by an arrow or a pattern on the sidewall of the tire). If the rubber is equal to the indicator, the tires must be changed.

You can also purchase a depth gauge (available in specialty stores and many mass merchandisers), which will allow you to determine whether your tires can withstand another season quickly.

If you don’t have this tool and your tires don’t have a wear indicator, you can always opt for the popular 25-cent technique. To do this, insert the coin into the bottom of the tire where it seems to be the most worn, with the caribou’s snout facing down. If the end of the tire remains fully visible, your tires are too worn.

Remember to check the production date of your tires: over time, rubber dries out and tends to crack. It would help if you never drive with tires that are more than ten years old.

Abnormal tire wear

When uneven tire wear is noticed, different causes can be pointed out. For example, excessive wear on the inner or outer edge most likely indicates a tire alignment problem, while central wear often occurs when the tire is over-inflated. Camber and suspension misalignment can also play a role in abnormal tire wear.

Tire comparison / How do I choose tires?

According to the type of vehicle

Winter, summer, or all-season tires are chosen first and foremost according to the type of vehicle you own: some types of tires are designed for cars, small SUVs, crossovers, and minivans, while others are designed for utility vehicles or super sports cars. There are also commercial and off-road tires.

Among all these tires, it’s also possible to find different grades, where the quality (and price) varies.

Depending on the size of the tires

Next, determine the appropriate tire size for your vehicle. As a general rule, the dimensions your tires should have (width in millimeters and sidewall height) are located in the driver’s door frame, fuel door, or glove compartment. This information is also available in the manufacturer’s guide provided with the vehicle.

You will find other essential tire information at these locations, such as speed rating (the maximum speed the tire can support) and load index (the maximum load the tire can support).

Where can I find tire sizes? Directly on them!

  • 245: Width in millimeters
  • 40: Sidewall height in % of tire width

In the example, the flank height is 40% of 245.

  • ZR: Structure

There are 3 tire structures: R for the radial structure, – for the diagonal structure and B for the “Bias Belted” structure.

  • 19: Inner diameter in inches
  • 98: Load Index
  • Y: Speed Index

Is it possible to opt for larger rims?

For example, would you like to choose 17″ wheels when your car has 15″ wheels? It is possible, yes, but under certain conditions. To ensure that your vehicle remains compliant and meets safety standards, you will need to make sure you choose tires of an appropriate size. Remember that fitting larger wheels will raise your vehicle above the ground and that this modification could alter the speedometer readings.
