Get your car winter-ready with a FREE set of tires (CONTEST)

Oct 7 2017, 1:02 am

Unpredictable winter weather is on its way, Vancouver.

You have two choices; embrace it with open arms and enjoy all the outdoor activities that come along with it, or complain about the snow.

If you’re prepared for the coming of winter there should be no reason to get down. And you can start by getting your car winter-ready. You may not know that snow tires should already be on your vehicle when driving on designated highways since BC Law set a deadline of October 1. If you’re caught on these roads without them, you could get a fine of more than $100 dollars, or for not having a proper winter tire depth of at least 3.5 mm.

And since the majority of road accidents happen around the time of the first winter snowfall, it’s crucial that you have them. The sooner, the better as your safety is paramount. That’s why Daily Hive teamed up with Mr Lube to give one lucky reader set of four snow tires – for free.

It’s important to remember that snow tires aren’t the only element to consider.

Before you head off on a winter road trip you can check road conditions, have chains in your trunk incase you need them, and an emergency kit, too. You can also check your brakes and lights, avoid using cruise control, and of course, drive carefully throughout the winter season.
