Sailun Winter Tires – Where Safety of your Family is Paramount !
Fall is in full swing as the leaves fall off the trees, the crisp cool weather approaches us; it’s time for the snow to start rolling on the east coast. Frost is on the window as your heat up the car in the morning and it’s not uncommon for the roads to have touches of ice all ready.
Living in Nova Scotia right on the Atlantic Ocean, the cold breeze and moisture gravitates to our roads. Winter tires are a must on this part of the coast for safe driving. Living in the hub of Nova Scotia, in Truro the wind and weather that come directly up the Bay of Fundy making weather very unpredictable; you can go from clear roads to a snow fill road into the middle of a blizzard in seconds. Nova Scotia is surrounded by water ensuring our air and humidity carries the coldest of the coast. The Bay of Fundy, which has the highest tides in the world loves to shove Ice & Snow directly onto the mainland. Our mountain ranges create some unpredictable weather from one kilometer to the next. Creating thick clouds of fog that can make sudden stopping a must. The amount of rain and long stretches of straight highway throughout our rural province can make hydro planing our the highways treacherous! Safely of our family is paramount!
If the weather in this part of the country is not enough reasons to ensure you have the best tires, playing dodge the wildlife on our highways can be a dangerous game. In order to keep your family safe you need to ensure you have the best possible grip, traction and stopping power.
Roy found this out first hand last winter while driving our pregnant daughter back from a visit with her grandfather. The weather changed on a dime, the fog go thick, the snow plumed down and all of a sudden the fog cleared. OH NO! There was a car less than 10 feet from Roy and Becca on the WRONG side of the road heading right for them (Here in Nova Scotia not all our highways are doubled which makes winter driving extra dangerous). Thankfully we had invested in winter tires which allowed a head on collusion to become less of an impact accident with the ability to stop quick without sliding on snow packed roads. Fortunately there were no life threatening injuries however if we weren’t convinced before we were now that winter tires are a MUST for family safety!
Handling, stopping power, noise and gas consumption are the things I like to know about tires when making my decision on the best fit for our family. We tend to get record snow fall amounts and it doesn’t take long for that snow to pack into the groves of all seasons tires making them like banana peels that why we always choose Winter Tires I love how quiet the tires are; you would never know you had winter tires on. Sailun Tires received the PTPA (Parent Tested – Parent Approved) Seal and it’s not hard to see why so many unbiasd parent testers awarded Sailun Tires the Seal! It’s the ONLY Tire’s that did!
It was bright and sunny yesterday when we packed up the baby and headed to over Mount Thom; it didn’t take long for it to seem like we drove into another dimension, we got attacked by ice pellets and the once try road was not wet and greasy; with the temperature quite low it didn’t take long for those roads to get slick looking! It quickly changed and the highway was flooded with water and cars were all over the highway; well except for us. Our Sailun tires due to their excellent thread design makes driving on the road in these dangerous weather conditions, no difference in handling that if the road had been dry. We continued on our journey knowing that regardless of the weather; we were prepared to arrive safe!
