Should you get winter tires?

Unlike all-season tires, winter tires contain a variety of compounds and design features that can grip the surface and stop a vehicle quicker.

On Jan. 1, 2016, the Ontario government mandated that all personal insurance companies must offer a discount for equipping winter tires on your vehicle.

Insurance companies are doing their part by providing the monetary benefits of equipping your vehicle with winter tires. Insured drivers are eligible to receive a discount (between two and five per cent) on an automobile policy.

Be sure to talk to your insurance broker and find out what savings are available to you.
