Say Goodbye to Winter Tires: Schedule Your Appointment Today

Minit-Tune & Brake| Tuesday, October 25, 2016

You start to notice the snow melting. The harmony of birds chirping wakes you in the morning. We thought it would never come… but it is almost spring time! Warmer weather means better road conditions and easier driving. It also means you can take off your winter tires. Schedule your appointment for winter tire removal at Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres and combine it with your semi-annual maintenance check to get your vehicle road-ready for the spring.

3 Reasons to Remove Your Winter Tires Now

Tempted to keep your winter tires on? Think twice before you leave them on too far into the spring. Here are a few reasons you should book your winter tire removal appointment sooner rather than later:

  1. Fuel Efficiency: Winter tires weigh down your vehicle since they are bulkier and heavier than normal tires. This is great when you need increased traction during inconsistent and slippery winter weather. It’s not so ideal when you are driving on dry or rainy roads and want to save money on gas. Fill up your gas tank less often this spring by getting your winter tires taken off.
  2. Longevity: The tread on your winter tires is what makes them effective in inclement weather. You don’t want to wear it down by driving on them year-round. Get them removed and increase their longevity, so that they last all the way through the next winter season.
  3. Suspension and Control: The extra weight of snow tires won’t just impact your fuel economy. It can also do a number on your suspension, braking and exhaust systems. The tires won’t damage your vehicle when they are providing extra control and traction during the winter, but they can start to cause wear after many months. When you get your normal tires put on, it’s a good idea to combine your appointment with a routine auto maintenance check. Our team can check to ensure your suspension is in good condition after a rough season.
