Many Canadians had their cars parked during the spring and summer as they worked from home and self-isolated due to the pandemic.

Because of this, 11% of Canadians left their winter tires on all year long. Which isn't good and can actually wear them out faster! That's because the rubber compound in winter tires is designed for colder conditions, not warmer temperatures.

Unfortunately, I know a ton of people who leave their winter tires on all year long and to those peopleā€¦ What's it like being rich? I dread the day I need to buy new tires and I will do everything in my power to make them last as long as I can.
