Install Winter Tires & Save!
The right tires are crucial for a safe journey.
We all know how dangerous Ontario winters can be, especially if you plan on driving in the snow! Roads can become slippery and unpredictable in a matter of seconds.
These conditions put you, your passengers and other drivers at risk.
While summers or all seasons are great for milder weather, winter demands more grip.
At Mackay Insurance, we recommend installing certified winter tires. Their unique tread ensures a secure grip - even in the iciest conditions.
Beyond increasing your safety, winter tires can also lower your auto insurance premium!
Take Control Behind The Wheel
With severe weather changes and challenging road conditions, winter driving is highly unpredictable.
Thankfully, winter tires lower your risk and give you more control behind the wheel.
While they are not mandatory, the benefit of winter tires hugely outweighs the cost.
In fact, according to TRAC’s 2021 Canadian Consumer Winter Tire Study, 79% of winter tire owners believe winter tires saved them from,
a) A hazardous situation,
