MPI Winter tire Program

MPI Winter tire Program

Car accidents are never a pleasant experience, and many happen in Manitoba during the winter months. One way to reduce the risk of an accident in the winter is to trust the rubber that you drive on. Swapping to dedicated winter tires can seem overkill if you don’t already have a set, but once you make the switch, you’ll never think twice again.
Luckily, Manitoba Public Insurance has a Winter Tire Program that offers Manitobans a trustworthy and affordable option when making their purchase.

MPI Winter Tire Program
MPI’s Winter Tire Program allows eligible Manitobans to receive a low-interest financing option when purchasing a set of winter tires for their vehicle. The special financing rate is prime plus 2%, on up to $2,000 per vehicle. MPI says that this rate has a term between 1 to 4 years and a monthly payment withdrawal day. This rate can only be applied to qualifying winter tires and associated costs from participating retailers

Winter Tire Program Eligibility
To enjoy the special offers from the MPI Winter Tire Program, there is a set of requirements you must fulfill.
Must be an individual Manitoba Public Insurance customer (not corporate)
Must purchase a set of qualifying winter tires for a passenger vehicle or light truck registered under your name
Must have no financing restrictions or outstanding payments on your MPI account
Basically, if you are a Manitoba Public Insurance holder for your own vehicle, chances are that you are eligible to participate in this program.

When looking for a set of winter tires to buy, look for this symbol. This indicates that the tire is endorsed by trusted parties and is used by MPI to approve its winter tire selection. Dilawri’s Crown Honda carries the largest selection of winter tires in town and can help you choose the right tires for your needs.
