It’s quite alarming to see just how many British Columbians are not using winter tires…Winterreifen mit Eiszapfen
That’s the word from Carolyn Gord, Communications Manager for the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada who says BC ranks as one of the lowest in winter tire usage across the country.
Gord says 71% of drivers believe all-season tires are good enough for winter driving, a myth she is trying to disspell…
In any temperature below freezing, Gord says cold temperature, a winter tire will stop your car 30% faster than all-season tires are able to. She says now is the time to get your tires on, before the first snowfall comes.
