Snow Tire Sales to Increase this Winter – A Handy Reminder from TSG Insurance Services

As fall turns to winter, are you ready for the slip-sliding of your car on the snow and ice? As Canadians, most of us do realize that we need to drive differently when bad weather creeps in. It only takes the first snowfall to find your car in a ditch because your tires could not handle the cold. One way to stay safer on the roads is to put snow tires on your automobile. Snow tires (also called winter tires) are built to handle the frigid temperatures to keep you safer on the road.

Sales of winter tires are expected to increase through 2027 as more cars become a commodity and less of a luxury. Many countries recognize that driver safety is paramount during inclement weather. The same holds for Canadians where some provinces require drivers to put snow tires on their car. Some insurance companies offer discounts for making the seasonal switch. Talk to a broker at Thomson, Schindle, Green Insurance, and Financial Services to obtain insurance quotes and discuss potential discounts. Our knowledgeable team will discuss your needs and find the best package for you.
