WINNIPEG — Manitoba motorists who want to finance the purchase of their winter tires this season will be able to do so again through a program offered by Manitoba Public Insurance.
The Crown auto insurer will continue with low-interest financing on winter tires, which provides loans to a maximum of $2,000 per vehicle for up to 48 months at prime plus two percent.
“The safety benefits of winter tires are well documented and this positive response confirms that many Manitoba vehicle owners have made road safety a priority,” said Gord Mackintosh, minister responsible for Manitoba Public Insurance.
“The purpose of this low-interest winter tire financing program is to allow Manitobans, who otherwise might not be financially able to do so, to equip their vehicles with winter tires.”
More than 30,000 drivers have taken advantage of the program since it began last fall.
