Start of Fall means Tire Change season is here and the need to think of the upcoming Shift to Winter Driving


The Early Bird gets the tire change ... Entire on Third Ave E
like the rest of the city's garages will be busy, busy, busy over
the next month or so as the annual tire change takes place

For those with plans to drive beyond the Port Edward Turnoff on Friday and through the fall and winter driving season, the rush is on to get the annual changeover from Summer to Winter tires. 

With Thursday the last day for travel on British Columbia highways without proper tires with the proper tread installed on your vehicles.

The seasons changing will perhaps have caught many motorists off guard and that will make for a few delays as the city's garages and tire shops deal with the annual flood of customers new and old.

With the arrival of Fall comes the time to start to think of the changing weather that quickly comes to the North Coast and Northwest and the need to Shift into Winter driving mode for motorists, with The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure offering a range of information through its annual program.

You can learn more about the Winter Tire requirements across the province here.

For those travelling the Highways of the Northwest this fall and into winter, keeping Drive BC as a handy resource is a useful guide to what's ahead on the roads, as well you can check our roster of Highway Cameras across the region for a heads up along the way.
