FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If my vehicle has All-Wheel Drive do I need winter tires?
Yes. All-Wheel Drive will help get you going in winter conditions but will fall short when turning or stopping.
Is it necessary to come back in approximately 50km after having my wheels installed to check the lug-nuts/bolts?
Yes. The presence of dirt, sand, rust, or grit between surfaces such as the threads of the nut or between a nut and the wheel can also create “false torques” during the initial installation. The wheel nuts/bolts must be checked again to ensure they are secured.
Are all-season tires ok for winter driving?
No. All-season tires are only designed to perform well in temperatures above 7oCelsius. For colder temperatures an All-weather or Winter tire is necessary.
When replacing only 2 tires why must they be installed on the rear of the vehicle?
New tires provide better wet grip than your half-worn tires. When new tires are installed on the rear, it helps reduce oversteer and the potential for your vehicle to fishtail and lose control in wet conditions
Where can I find the tire size for my vehicle?
The tire size for your vehicle can be found on the inside frame of the driver side door.
When is the best time to install winter tires on your vehicle?
It is best to install them when the temperature drops below 70C.
