November is upon us; the days are getting shorter and colder. Drivers all know that now is the time to change their summer tires for winter tires. But before you do, have you checked to see if your current winter tires are still in top condition? Installing winter tires is certainly essential, but a worn-out tire will not get you far and could even prove more dangerous.

At Acura Montreal Centre located in the heart of the city, near Laval and Longueil, our service department has excellent new tires available for you. Let your Acura dealer inspect your winter tires and check the general health of your automobile, so you can be ready for the harsh winter season! Choose from an extensive inventory of new SUVs and premium sedans, as well as pre-owned Acura models.


The answer to this question is twofold. On the one hand, as you know, winter tires should be substituted for summer tires because they provide more grip on slippery surfaces like ice and snow. But it’s also important to change your winter tires when they get worn out.

The average winter tire is good for about 30,000 km. In storage, it has a life expectancy of roughly six years, but can last up to ten years on the road. But these figures can differ and depend on how you use your vehicle. Issues such as poor tire pressure, improper tire placement and excessive driving temperatures can hasten the expiration of your tire’s life.

Worn out winter tires don’t make for good winter tires: they’ll have less grippoorer handling and can also cause you to skid. One way to check if your tires need changing is to stick a quarter into one of the grooves. If the nose of the caribou on the coin still shows, it’s time to change the tire. Be sure to try this method in more than one spot on the tire. 

Needless to say, you can also entrust this task to professionals who will tell you the exact state of your tires in no time! At Acura Montreal Centre, our technicians can inspect your tires and fit new ones if needed.

Our dealership carries a variety of tire models in our parts department. While you may be tempted to lean towards the used tire market, new tires will actually last much longer. What’s more, when you come to your Acura dealer, you are guaranteed to be driving on quality tires, as not all tires are created equal.

Some tires offer better handling, are quieter or brake more effectively than others on icy roads, for example. The professionals at Acura Montreal Centre can advise you on our wide range of tire models designed by reputable brands. They will also be able to direct you to the right tires for your car, which will save you time and avoid unnecessary pitfalls!
