And while you’re digging out toques, boots and warm coats for yourself, you should also consider the needs of your car or truck. This includes purchasing and installing a set of winter tires from Skaha Ford.

The Okanagan region gets its fair share of cold snowy weather, which is why it’s important to equip your vehicle with winter tires. As the temperature drops, this causes summer and all-season tires to lose their traction and control on slick roads, especially when it hits 7 degrees Celsius. This is also the temperature where winter tires kick into performance, thanks to the special rubber compounds that are designed to improve surface grip.

Rather than risk your safety (and those around you) this season, visit our Service Department at Skaha Ford to speak with an advisor. We are currently offering a Winter Performance Package that connects our customers to the best winter tires at competitive prices. We’ll help you select the right tire for your vehicle and driving conditions and install them before the snow flies.

2020 ford ecosport for sale kelowna bcControversy surrounds studded tires - with some drivers praising their enhanced traction and others deriding the potential damage they cause. The argument is endless, with both sides claiming victory.

Studded Performance (When Compared To Winter Tires)
3.6% Decrease On Wet Surfaces
15.6% Decrease On Snowy Surfaces

2020 ford ecosport for sale kelowna bcAn intensive study from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation recently discovered that summer tires simply can’t compare to their winter alternatives. These options - which feature a high lateral stiffness that renders them too inflexible for snow, causing brittleness and eventual breakage - deliver weak traction, requiring an average of 43 metres to come to a full stop on icy roads. 

Winter tires, comparatively, require only 32 metres - a full 22% less. This, our Service Department believes, is too great a number to ignore.

Schedule an appointment with us today to request winter tires and let us trade your summer wheels for something far safer.

ford winter tires available kelowna bcWinter is almost here - and with this comes a need for precise grippage. Your vehicle must be ready to face those wet-weather challenges; and tire treads must, therefore, deliver the necessary strength.

Allow our Service Department to help you achieve optimal treads.

To ensure that tires properly perform on the highway, their treads should measure above 2-mm in depth. This promotes superior grippage, as well as optimises sipe functions (thin slits cut across the surface that provide increased traction). To fall below that number will result in ineffective torque distribution on slippery terrains. 

Unsure if your tires measure up? Schedule an appointment with our team today and let us test your treads.
2020 ford edge for sale kelowna bcThe numbers prove troubling - with Consumer Reports noting that approximately half of Canadian drivers believe their all-season tires will suffice for winter. There is no need, they claim, to make a change. It's too great a hassle with too little a reward.

Our Service Department disagrees.

The value of winter tires has been (repeatedly) proven, with their seasonal-specific designs affording them improved grippage in sleet, snow, and slush; and, when comparing responses between vehicles properly equipped with these options and those that weren’t, Consumer Reports found a clear increase in traction performance.
