Other things to keep in mind:

For winter tires, you should go down a tire width (from stock size) and down a wheel diameter – assuming there are no brake clearance issues. The tire profile can be adjusted to maintain the stock rolling radius. The narrower tyre width helps cut through the snow and slush rather than riding on top of it.

Invest in some really good floor mats or better still floorlinersfor the driver/passenger footwells. Weathertech make excellent products that are custom sized to fit most cars.

Stock up on Windshield Washer Fluid with at least a -40 Deg.C rating and get a decent snow brush and ice scraper. Canadian Tire is your best bet for these.

If you can’t wait for Provinz to arrive, give Brad at Braidan Tire in Markham a call at 905-209-7979.
