Why Should I Invest in Winter Tires?
By Integra Tire Canada
We understand that deciding to make an investment to purchase winter tires can be a hard decision. Tires don’t add to the appearance of your car and they aren’t cheap like your morning Tim Hortons Double Double, so where’s the fun in shopping for them? To be honest, it’s not fun, but that’s what we’re here for.
You can come into any Integra Tire across Canada, tell us what kind of car you have, and we’ll do the rest of the work. We’ll find you the perfect winter tires for your vehicle with no hassle to you whatsoever.
Are you still not sure whether winter tires are worth the investment? Well, these facts might change your mind:
Winter tires are made of a special rubber compound that becomes more pliable in conditions below 7°C, which allows them to have more traction, therefore, increases stopping distances.
They have special slits called sipes that ensure that snow and ice do not build up in your tires and cause you to lose traction.
Purchasing winter tires will make your all-season tires last longer since each type of tire will be used in the season for which it was designed.
Winter tires that are proven effective will be marked with a snowflake symbol, so that you can be sure that they are made for winter driving. Winter tires are mandatory in some provinces, proving that some provinces know that winter tires can save lives.
Are you still not convinced? Just think about the safety of your family the next time you drive them somewhere in your town. You wouldn’t put you child in shorts and a t-shirt when it’s -40°C because they make parkas for cold weather. You wouldn’t give your child a bicycle without giving them a helmet because they make helmets for safety purposes. So why wouldn’t you buy winter tires for winter safety? Isn’t your family’s safety worth it?
