Get a Grip! Winter Tire Program
With winter inevitably coming it’s time to get ready! This year Manitoba Public Insurance has started a winter tire program allowing you to finance your winter tires! This is great news to anyone living in Manitoba and Portage la Prairie area. In the past, purchasing a new set of winter tires has definitely been seen as an investment for customers and sometimes not affordable depending on a person’s situation.
This program makes it easy to get a new set of winter tires on your vehicle without breaking the bank. MPI now has financing available that allows you to make monthly payments instead of a large sum of money upfront.
All-Season vs. Winter Tires
Although all-season tires can be used in a moderate winter environment, winter tires provide the best cold-weather performance below 7°C. This includes wet and dry in addition to snow/ice/slush surfaces where greater tread flexibility leads to better grip.
