Why Buy Winter Tires?Oct 19th, 2017
With a cool summer and now warm fall, thinking about Winter Tires may not be the first and foremost thing on your mind.
However there are a few very important reasons why you should get your winter tires at Heffner Toyota BEFORE the first snowfall:
Winter Tires should be thought of as COLD WEATHER TIRES. The magic number for needing winter tires is +7 Degrees Celsius. Cold weather decreases the elasticity on non-winter tires so even in cold yet dry pavement conditions you benefit from the increased traction, braking, and handling. Once you are able to see your own breath in the morning you should get your Winter Tires on your vehicle as soon as possible.
Heffner Toyota offers a Price Match Promise. We promise you will get the best possible price for your winter tire purchase. Head to our website to find the perfect tires for your vehicle: https://www.heffner.ca/toyota/winter-tires/
Store your tires properly in Heffner Toyota’s climate controlled Tire Storage Facility. Sunlight, heat, pressure, solvents and more can affect the physical properties and safe performance of your tires. When winter season hits it is as easy as booking a service appointment, bringing your car in and leaving your summer tires with us for storage until spring!
Regular tire inspection is important to make sure your tires are safe for the winter. Take a close look every six months or 8,000 km and rotate and balance your tires as necessary to avoid uneven wear. Checking the tread depth on your tires is a good idea too. You can do this by placing a quarter into the tread, with the caribou’s nose down. If you can see the tip of the nose, you may need new tires.
When you arrive for your tire swap appointment you will receive a complimentary coffee and cookie on us at our Morning Glory Café! Relax and enjoy the café’s atmosphere with the comfort of knowing your tires will have been installed by Toyota trained technicians.
