Continental Winter Tires vs All-Season Tires
Emergency winter gear for people that have to deal with snow and ice like I do. In this video we just take a look at the survival gear that I keep in my Tacoma – much of it is gear that I hope you don’t have to use – but it’s all stuff that you should definitely keep with you in the winter. This gear will help you either get to where you need to be, or survive in your car if you absolulutely cannot make it to your destination. Now I know much of the U.S. (and the world) doesn’t have extreme winters like I have here in Colorado – but also there are a lot of places that have worse winters than I do!

For hockey all-star P.K. Subban, it’s never too cold to go out for ice cream. He relies on Bridgestone’s Blizzak tires because they stop 33% faster on ice than all-season tires and allow P.K. to play it safe, even if Bridgestone’s engineers have a few surprises in store for him.
Winter tires: Stud or not to stud a winter tire? ( to be or not to be )
Do you stud your winter tire? Or do you prefer non-studded one?
There is a lot of advantage for your winter tires to be studded but the major one is more grip!! In this video, we talk with Dany from Nokian Tyres about the différence between a studded tire and a non-studded one!
The revolutionary Nokian Eco Stud 8 concept offers safety and controlled behaviour in extreme situations, and it consists of the following components:
– An eco-friendlier next-generation anchor stud
– A flange design that reduces stud impact
– A patented Eco Stud cushion that boosts the operation of the stud and further dampens road contact.
Remember that from December 15 to March 15 inclusive, all passenger vehicles registered in Québec, including taxis, must be equipped with winter tires. It’s sometimes difficult to choose the right winter tire just by looking at them! A good winter tire should offer some bite in all winter situations, long durability and have the snowflake logo! But now that we had stud to the shopping list, what will you do?
Remember also that all Nokian products are recommended by CarQuestion!! In addition, the studs are installed at the factory for maximum bite on ice and snow!
So, look at our video about STUDS!

When the temperature drops and winter driving conditions are at their worst, feel confident driving on Blizzak winter tires. Snow, ice, and frozen roads present dangerous driving conditions that your summer and all season tires aren’t designed to handle. Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires are specially engineered with unique tread patterns, deeper tread depth, and snow and ice technologies that will arm your vehicle for unexpected hazards.

These chains are helping to keep truckers safe in dangerous winter weather. Once inclement weather threatens a driver’s safety, chainwheels are lowered next to each wheel.
