Struggling to find winter tires that fit your budget? Today’s post explains how TIRECRAFT helps Canadians save money on these winter safety essentials.
Winter Tires ‘Essential’ For Majority Of Canadians, TRAC Report Finds
Since 2008, winter tires have been mandatory for all passenger vehicles in Quebec from December 1st to March 15th. But even in provinces where they’re not required by law, the majority of Canadians rate winter tires as automotive essentials.
While conducting an online survey of 1,523 Canadian motorists, researchers at the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada found that 81% of drivers believe snow tires saved them from a series accident in 2020. For these drivers, and the 72% of Canadian motorists who now use winter tires, snow tires aren’t just an option, they’re essential for the safety of their loved ones and community members.
Safety benefits aside, winter tires can also save you serious money through financial incentives, such as lower auto insurance premiums and low interest loans on winter tire purchases. In the last 5 years, both Ontario and Newfoundland implemented legislation to reduce auto insurance premiums for drivers with four winter tires installed on their vehicles, and Manitoba Public Insurance now offers low interest loans on winter tires to a maximum of $2000 per vehicle, for up to 48 months at the rate of prime, plus two per cent.
Of course, if you want to take advantage of these savings and safety benefits, you need to invest in winter tires. That means committing to a big-ticket purchase, which can be a bit daunting, even if you stick with the more budget-friendly options and take advantage of low-interest loans. But if controlling costs is your concern, TIRECRAFT can help.
What follows is a look at a few of the ways that your local TIRECRAFT dealer can help you save money on this essential safety upgrade.
