Tires are the most ignored and underrated component of your vehicle. They are the only interface between your Honda and the road to provide traction to accelerate, steer and stop.
Westwind Honda knows your vehicle best and will ensure it’s equipped with the optimum choice of tire for your driving needs.
There are rebates available on Michelin and Toyo winter and all season tires. Call our Parts Department to find out how much you can save!
HOW TO TELL IF TIRES ARE ALL SEASON
Look for a “M&S” indication on the side. This marking indicates an all season tire. If you see a little mountain with a snow flake inside that’s a winter tire and should be removed when the temperature rises above 7 deg. A summer tire will not have either of these symbols.
MAINTENANCE OF YOUR ALL SEASON TIRES
Tire Pressure: Your tire’s longevity can be increased by maintaining the correct air pressure. The recommended pressure can be found on the driver’s door pillar. Tire pressure should be checked monthly.
Tire Rotations: Properly scheduled tire rotations will promote even wear and prolong the life of your All Season tire.Your tires should be rotated every 8,000km.
Wheel Alignments: Rough roads, winter driving, bumping curbs will all cause the alignment to be altered and in turn cause the tires to wear prematurely. Alignments should be performed yearly.
Tire Replacement: To maintain proper handling and traction your all season tires should be replaced at 4/32″. Time also plays a factor in the life of a tire; It’s recommended that all season tires be replace before they reach 10 year of age.
WHEN SHOULD I REMOVE MY WINTER TIRES AND INSTALL MY ALL SEASON TIRES?
When our temperature’s reach 7 degrees its time to put away the winter tires. Warmer temperature’s cause excessive tread wear on a soft winter tire and greatly reduce the tires life. All season tires will out perform a winter tire with performance, fuel economy, on dry roads and in warm temperatures.
