    2. Improved Michelin tire geared for vans, pickups, and light trucks

      Michelin unveiled its all-new Agilis 3 tire, designed specifically for light commercial vehicles including light trucks, vans, and pickups. During the online launch event, company executives explained how the need for “sustainable mobility” has been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic — with logistics being a crucial cog of daily life.

      Michelin thus sees the newest iteration of the Agilis line as a decisive answer to the even more important role of mobility during this time, and is another expression of how the brand is working to make tires last as long as possible while assuring safety and performance throughout their life cycle.

      The Agilis 3 is particularly positioned to “play a central role in the new normal,” as it takes its place as Michelin’s primary product in the segment.

    3. New labels on tires from May in Europe

      From next May, consumers will be better informed when choosing new tires for their cars, as there will be a new label that will mention parameters such as fuel economy, wet grip and rolling noise.

      The purpose of the regulation is to make labels clearer and to provide consumers with more information so that they can choose safer and more energy-efficient and less noisy tires. Icons for snow and ice traction will be added and the design of the label will be updated.

    5. Ensure you and your vehicle are up to speed this winter

      “Weather plays a huge factor [in accidents], but it’s not an excuse,” says Sgt. Brett Moore of the Toronto Police Service.

      On a wintry day, numerous crashes happen, varying in severity. However, not everyone is aware of what to do if they're involved in an accident.

      Officers say the first step should be a given: to abide by the provincial slogan “Steer it to Clear it.”

      “Especially if you’re on a highway,” adds Sgt. Moore. “If you’re on the Gardiner or the Don Valley Parkway, get it off the road.”

    6. Continental Manufactures Tire With New 'HL' Load Index

      Large, powerful cars and SUVs with electric or hybrid drive are far heavier than conventional vehicles, yet offer little room to fit larger tires with higher load capacities. In response, Continental is now manufacturing the first passenger tire with the new “HL” load index. Inflated to the same pressure, these tires have a higher load capacity than those built to the former XL standard, said the company.

    8. Quebec Once Proposed Outlawing Motorcycle Riding In The Winter And It Sort Of Makes Sense

      As Canada Moto Guide notes, much of Europe already has laws in place to require the use of winter tires for all vehicles in specific months. This alone takes a lot of motorcycles off of roads. However, some governments want to take it a step further: A couple of years ago, Quebec proposed a ban on motorcycles from its roads entirely during the winter months. During a cold ride to a flight lesson I realized it’s not entirely crazy.

    15. Canadian Auto Dealers Seek Managed ICE Phaseout

      OTTAWA – The Canadian automobile sector has called on the country’s provinces to better coordinate efforts to increase demand for electric vehicles. This follows the Québec government announcing a ban on local sales of new combustion-driven light vehicles from 2035.

      While the ban would not apply to most commercial vehicles and used-auto sales, and hybrid sales and use might still be allowed, Brian Kingston, the new president and CEO of the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Assn., fears this policy might not achieve its goal of promoting EV sales: “You need a plan, not a ban,” he tells Wards.

    17. Winter tires could save your life – don’t listen to the truthers

      If haven’t got your winter tires on now, you may have to wait a while. Thanks to COVID-19, there could be a decrease in supply. Production slowed down once lockdowns went into effect last spring. Plus, closures meant some drivers couldn’t visit mechanics and spent the summer driving on their winter tires; now, those tires will need to be replaced. In the last few weeks, there has been a rush to get winter tires put on.

    18. Why you need to get winter tires

      ...One of the most common winter rituals is switching all-season and summer performance tires out in favour of those designed specifically for winter driving. The reasons for doing so might appear obvious, given Canadian winters are quite long and cold with heavy snowfall accumulation, but I’m going to outline the main benefits of winter tire use along with other factors to consider when making the switch.

    19. The Cold, Hard Facts About Winter Tires & What Snowbirds Need to Know to Stay Safe While Wintering in Canada

      Long, cold, snowy winters are familiar to most Canadians, except perhaps those who would typically head to warmer climates around this time of year. But, border closures, travel restrictions and safe choices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 mean most snowbirds are staying north of the border this year. Many Vancouver Island campgrounds are reporting unprecedented winter bookings with several managing waitlists to accommodate the influx of those looking for a more temperate Canadian winter experience. But, for these snowbirds, winter driving conditions may come as a bit of a surprise even with choosing the west coast to ride out winter 2020/2021.
