Wininpeg, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/01/2014 -- With winter just around the corner, a leading auto repair shop in Winnipeg advises motorists to be get their tires ready for the upcoming season.
Canadian Super Shop, a leading automotive service Winnipeg firm, said in a statement that motorists should remember that tire air pressure decreases during the winter. The company advises car owners to regularly check their tires and tire pressure since tire air pressure decreases in cold weather.
It also advises motorists to opt for winter tires as these provide additional traction during the cold months. Canadian Super Shop also discourages motorists from purchasing only a couple of winter tires as having only two wheels can make a vehicle spin out especially on an icy curve. If budget is an issue, the firm suggests that the winter tires are placed on the rear of a front-wheel drive for security reasons.
The company adds that motorists should not overlook wheels and tires designed for snow, citing that Quebec's mandatory snow tire ruling resulted to nearly 20 percent in collisions on the first winter it was implemented.
Canadian Super Shop also advises motorists to constantly check their tire pressure and restore it to levels as recommended by their vehicle's manufacturer.
Regularly checking and correcting wheel alignment and balance would also help in preventing accidents during the winter months, say the shop.
Winnipeg has experienced heavy snowfall the past few years, with the 2013-14 winter season already acknowledged as one of the coldest on record.
