Did you know some insurance companies may offer a discount if your car has winter tires?

Having four winter tires on your vehicle reduces your braking distance in the wither weather by up to 25% or between 2 and 3 car-lengths. That braking time could be the difference between stopping in order to avoid a fender-bender, or worse, a severe accident.

Winter tires have special rubber and tread designed to handle winter weather. The tire tread remains flexible when temperatures drop below 7°C, preventing snow buildup and helping maintain traction on icy roads.

Check with your insurance professional as some insurance companies offer a discount if your car is equipped with four winter tires.
