Serving customers with care and knowledge
Tire Junction has been serving up quality tires with excellent service to the people of Bolton for quite some time now; a success that owner, Amar Uppal, says stems from his over 30 years of experience in the industry.
“I’ve been in this industry for over 30 years. Tire Junction was a family company that I opened up in Bolton about five years ago,” he said.
Mr. Uppal said he offers new and used tires; all season, snow.
“We offer a wide variety of brands from Michelin to Mickey Thomson and Firestone to Hercules. We have every brand possible available, and every brand on the market.”
If you haven’t gotten those winter tires on yet, you might want to visit Mr. Uppal — he will surely take care of you.
“We offer Ice Blazer, Blizzak, Michelin, Hercules — you name it, we’ve got it,” he said.
“If a customer comes to us and requests to order a tire that may be out of stock or don’t have, we can order it and possibly get it in the same day or the next day.”
Mr. Uppal said it’s good to install winter tires when the temperature begins to drop down and stays below 8 degrees Celsius, and re-install all-seasons when the temperature rises and remains above 10 to 12 degrees, usually around April.
Some tips on not only using and maintaining your vehicle in the winter season, but careful driving in snowy conditions include taking time out for your tires. Winter weather can limit traction, putting the safety of drivers and their passengers in jeopardy. When possible, avoid driving in the snow, and steer clear of roads where ice and black ice are known to form. Consider low-viscosity oils in the winter. The owner’s manual of your vehicle may recommend you use a lower viscosity motor oil to counter the dip in temperature that’s synonymous with winter. You should always inspect your vehicle before winter arrives, as it is highly possible that your vehicle may have sustained damage over the year, and the bitter bite of winter will certainly make quick work in exploiting those afflictions. Don’t be caught off guard. Part of winterizing a vehicle is being prepared if the vehicle breaks down. Make sure you have extra washer fluid in your vehicle’s trunk, and don’t forget to include an ice scraper, snowbrush or even a snow shovel as well.
