Steel wheels are great for most weather conditions, but for winter driving they’re ideal, as they are road-salt and corrosion-resistant. The most cost-effective wheel option, steel wheels have a simple, industrial design. If you want your steel wheels to look more stylish, you can purchase wheel covers. These are inexpensive, and easy to install and remove.
Spring-summer alloy wheels feature exposed aluminum accents or chrome, in attractive designs that give your vehicle a unique look. Because of the exposed metal, however, we don’t recommend spring-summer alloy wheels for winter use.
If you want to change the look of your car -- or if you’ll be changing your tires seasonally -- you may want to buy a tires and wheels package from Canadian Tire. Having wheels on both your winter and all season tires will save you money every time you need to switch.
