5 reasons to have your winter tires installed early

While snow tires aren’t mandatory outside Quebec—where drivers have until December 15th to have them installed—they are recommended for anyone who needs to drive on Canadian roads during the winter. At Auto Value, we wholeheartedly believe that winter tires go a long way in making winter driving safer for everyone on the road, and we suggest that you have yours installed earlier in the season rather than later. Here are a few reasons why.


  1. You’ll avoid scheduling conflicts

As winter approaches, your local mechanic will be busier and busier with snow tire installations. To ensure you’re able to secure an appointment at a time that works for you, book your tire change as early as you can.


  1. You’ll avoid having to cancel plans because of the weather

Mother Nature is anything but predictable, especially here in Canada. Even if the weather seems just lovely, you never know when you’ll wake up to the first blizzard of the year. That’s why it’s a good idea to have your snow tires put on before you see snow predicted in the forecast.


  1. You’ll be able to shop for a new set of tires at your leisure

If you need a new set of winter tires this year, make an appointment at one of our Certified Service Centers as soon as possible. This will ensure that you have all the time you need to discuss your options with one of our experts before the winter rush takes hold.


  1. You’ll reduce your risk of a traffic accident

Once snow and ice start to appear on the roads, it’s easy to tell which cars have snow tires and which ones don’t. Those still using summer or four-season tires are much more prone to skidding, swerving and losing control of their vehicle entirely—all things you can avoid by having your snow tires in place before winter sets in.


  1. You won’t have to call several different garages to snag a last-minute appointment

Book your appointment in advance to ensure that your first-choice garage can install your snow tires. The more you wait, the more phone calls you’ll have to make before you find someone who’s free.


Auto Value: your partner in safe travel

At Auto Value, we guarantee that each set of snow tires our experts install is perfectly balanced, inflated and secured. We look forward to keeping you safe on the road this winter!


Service is the difference. We get it!
