Learn tips and tricks for how to prepare your tires for winter
Sometimes in Canada it seems like it is winter-time more often than not. Our winters do stretch longer than we’d like, but that is even more reason to be prepared for winter driving. The biggest issue with winter driving is slippery road conditions, which means that your tires become ultra-important as they are your one physical contact with the road. We want everyone to drive safely on icy roads, so please keep reading. We will tell you how to prepare your tires for winter.
Keep winter tires in storage
One of the easiest ways to protect your tires is to keep them in storage while they aren’t in use. That’s because we keep them in a climate-controlled facility, we keep them clean, and we keep them inspected for wear and tear. Don’t have a set of winter tires? We can help with that too. Having winter tires is great because they have more traction. Also switching between two sets of tires gives you less wear on each individual tire and gives you a convenient time to get your tires rotated twice yearly.

Monitor your tire PSI
Another good way to keep your tires ready for winter roads is to keep them inflated at the correct PSI. PSI is a way of measuring your tires inflation. It stands for pounds per square inch. An added bonus of keeping your vehicle’s tires at their recommended PSI is that you will save money on fuel. It helps you to keep the correct amount of traction on the road. That means your vehicle will accelerate and decelerate with less strain on its engine. Every tire should be marked with the correct PSI in raised lettering.
