Winter Tire Cost Calculator

This calculator will compare the costs of equipping your vehicle with a single set of tires (such as All-Season/Summer/All-Season 3PMS) versus the choice of adding a second set of dedicated winter tires (either with or without extra rims/wheels) to your seasonal driving routine.

1.  Begin by entering your annual mileage information below.

2. Complete the “Current Situation” table to provide the estimated value of your current tires and estimated related costs.

3. Enter values for “Option 1” and “Option 2” based on the winter tire purchase scenarios. (default values in the calculator can be overwritten). As the information is entered the results at the bottom will be automatically recalculated.
