ARE YOU DRIVER ENOUGH TO HANDLE OUR CANADIAN WINTERS?
Winter is the great Canadian ad- venture we all want to master, especially when getting to and from our prized destinations. To help you perform at your best and with control regardless of the challenge, Bfgoodrich Tires launched the Winter T/A KSI tire. Exclusively available in Canada starting this winter, its technology and design contribute to making the everyday Canadian winter drive not only bearable but enjoyable. Andrew Comrie-picard, Bfgood- rich Tires Ambassador, understands that winter driving is about having the right skills for the road and the right tools for ultimate performance. Here are a few questions he recommends drivers ask themselves to test their acumen:
Do you brake while turning? “One of the most common mistakes a winter driver can make is to apply the brakes when changing direction,” says Comrie-picard. “The best way to slow down and maintain control of your vehicle is to brake while moving in a straight line. Release the brake while initi- ating a turn, and similarly, wait until you’ve completed the turn to apply the throttle.”
Do you stay alert and look ahead? Being aware of your surroundings is imperative when driving. Taking advantage of your peripheral vision will help optimize your ability to manage varying road conditions. By looking as far ahead as possible, you’ll be better equipped to avoid obstacles, steer steady and avoid sudden movements that can cost you control.
Do you have a performance-oriented tread? When the temperature consistently drops below freezing, it’s important to have four high-quality, matching winter tires that offer extreme winter traction and wet per- formance, as well as control and durability, such as the new Bfgoodrich Winter T/A KSI tire. This tire’s high-density silica compound adapts to varying winter temperatures for traction in snow, ice and wet conditions, while its maximized biting edges are created for confident acceleration and braking on snow and ice. Investing in tires like this one can help you maintain the upper hand in challenging winter conditions.
