Why choose winter tires?
With the severe swings in weather patterns, it’s hard to accurately predict what kind of conditions a Canadian winter will bring to us this year.
One thing is for certain: when it comes to snow, ice, and slush on the roads, it’s always better to be riding on a good set of winter tires.
“For starters, the main benefits are the braking, being able to stop in a much shorter distance than on all-season tires,” said Josh Adams, office manager at Dettmer Tire and Auto Centre in downtown Guelph. “Typically, that’s about 30 percent shorter under emergency braking conditions so that’s a quite a bit.”
As temperatures gradually start to dip as autumn gives way to cooler winter weather, Adams says it’s important to get the winter tires on early. Many insurance company discounts are based on riding on winter tires, so it’s a good idea to get them installed before the first snow flies.
“Anytime the road is below seven degrees consistency is a good time to make the switch,” said Adams. “That usually means sometime in the last two weeks of October.”
“With winter around the corner we thought it would be a very well-received and useful time to offer the contest,” said Josh Adams. “It’s a goodwill gesture for our customers and a great opportunity to save money on a new set of top quality Bridgestones.”
Dettmer Tire has over 45 years of serving customers in Guelph and surrounding regions. The contest runs October 10th at 12:00 pm through October 20th at 4:00 pm. The grand prize includes four new winter car tires worth up to $1,500 including installation, redeemable at either Dettmer locations in Guelph. Complete contest details can be found on the contest page.
