Now Available in BC: Ford Winter Performance Packages

May 25,2022

When was the last time you checked the tread depth on your winter tires? If it’s been a few years (or never), grab a toonie and follow these steps from Skaha Ford in BC to see if it’s time to replace your winter tires.

Checking the tread depth only takes a few seconds:

 
• Place the toonie in between the tread blocks.

• If the tread reaches the bear’s paws, your tires have a safe amount of rubber remaining.

• If the silver part of the coin is covered by the tread block, your tires are 50 percent worn and now is a good time to shop around for a replacement.

• If the tread reaches the “Canada” or “Dollars” lettering, your tires are worn and must be replaced immediately.

Driving with winter tires without sufficient tread depth is unsafe and not recommended. Your Ford will not only lack grip but your braking distance and vehicle control will be impaired. To ensure the safety of yourself, your passengers and fellow drivers, replace worn winter tires for optimal performance in wet, icy and snowy conditions.

Now is a great time to visit Skaha Ford in BC. Our Service Department is currently offering a Winter Performance Package, which offers brand-name winter tires at competitive prices. If your rubber is due for replacement, our experts will help you select the right tire for your Ford to keep you secure on Penticton’s roads.
