Text message or call Larsens' Excel Tire today; we'll book an appointment for you.

Winter in Penticton is sneaking up on us, with overnight temperatures dropping below 7°C and plenty of rain and some snow forcasted in November. Make sure your tires can handle the cold, wet and snow; and keep your vehicle safely on the road!

Whatever winter has in-store for you, Larsens' Excel Tire can ensure your vehicle is ready for all the winter driving conditions you will encounter. Ask about our Winter Driving Service.

  • Winter Tires Check: ensuring your winter tires are in good condition.
  • Cooling System Check: test your antifreeze level and inspect your engine hoses and belts to make sure your car won't freeze up this winter.
  • Electrical System Check: Your car's battery produces less current at low temperatures, so it must work harder to start your car during cold weather. We can test your battery to determine how it will function under load.

Call Larsens' Excel Tire today to book an appointment. We'll get your vehicle in shape for winter driving.

Winter Tire Change Over

Let's get your summer tires off and put your winter tires on.

  • Once the temp is below 7°C, your winter tires will provide better grip and more control of your vehicle.
  • Winter tires have rubber compounds formulated to stay soft and pliable for better traction in cold weather.
  • You will need "mountain snowflake tires" to drive the mountain passes in BC from October 1 to March 31!
