How To Book Your Spring Tire Changeover And What To Know
By Integra Tire Canada
When the snow begins to melt, it’s time to change over your winter tires to a set of tires appropriate for the warmer weather. Integra Tire recommends installing your all-season tires once the temperature is regularly 7 degrees Celsius or higher. At this temperature, the rubber compound on your winter tires will begin to prematurely wear and be less effective.
When it’s time to…
Inspect Your Tires Before Bringing Them In
Before scheduling your appointment, it’s important to know if the tires we will be mounting are in adequate shape for another season of driving. Note that your local Integra Tire will inspect your tires before mounting them; however, it will save you time if you can catch any problems before booking your appointment. If your tires are stored with your local Integra Tire, they will be inspected before and after they have been stored.
Closely inspect the tread of your tires and measure your tread depth. If your tread depth is any less than 2/32″, they will not be suitable for mounting on your vehicle. If your tires are near 4/32″, you may also want to considering replacing your tires early as you’ll likely need a new set in the coming months, and it may not be worth waiting to mount a new set in less than a few months.
Aside from the tread depth, look for other signs of compromise on each tire; this can include punctures, gashes, and irregular wear.
If You Need A Set Of Tires
If you do need a set of new tires for spring and summer, Integra Tire offers a vast lineup of tires for every kind of driver and budget. You can use our online tire selector to find a set of tires or request a price; however, just because a set of tires might fit your vehicle, it does not mean they’re the right set of tires for you and your family.
Tires all have different applications for different drivers. If you’re unsure of what tires are right for you, click HERE to find your nearest Integra Tire dealer and you can either call us or use the “ask a question” form in the menu to get an email response. Some things you should know are:
