Tires: Why The Date Code Matters

Tires: Why The Date Code Matters

Sometimes we get surprised clients when we inform them that their tires need replacing due to obvious cracks in the rubber. “But I just bought them!” they say. Did you know that the majority of tires have a date code on them which indicates the week and year they were manufactured? So just because you bought the tires last year, doesn’t mean they were made that year. And remember that improper storage of tires causes the rubber to prematurely dry and crack.Depending on who you purchase your tires from, how they store their inventory and how often it takes for them to sell out and replenish their stock, you may not be getting what you thought you were paying for. And ok, you don’t need to buy ones that were made that very month. But we’ve seen tires that were purchased in 2012 yet the date code says ... read more

We turned into a craft space!

We turned into a craft space!

This past Sunday (November 30), we transformed our auto repair shop into a craft space! We held our 2nd fundraiser event for Room For A Child Charity and made 10 beautiful cards in 3 hours. All proceeds went towards this great cause. Special thanks to Genevieve Ko, Stampin’ Up Demonstrator Extraordinaire, for creating the cards & putting together the card packs! Room For A Child creates beautiful bedrooms for children living in poverty – all items are donated by individuals or corporations and the work is done by volunteers. Truly a great charity

Storing Your Tires

Storing Your Tires

YES – there is a proper way to storing your tires. First thing’s first—some clarification: Tires: Google defines it this way: “a rubber covering . . . placed around a wheel to form a soft contact with the road.” Rim:Also known as “wheel,” this is the steel, aluminum, or alloy part on which the tire is mounted. Affectionately referred to as “car bling” in most music videos. Note: When you say wheel in our trade, it doesn’t mean tire! As with all things cars, maintenance is key —that includes properly storing your extra set of tires, be it winter or spring season. Remember that your tires are made of rubber and will age naturally over time. Storing them properly will help prevent premature tire wear. If you leave tires for a long period of time in any given position, they’ll develop a flat spot—this applies whether the tires are stored upright or on their side—however, you’ll ... read more

2014 AIA Canada Student Aftermarket Day

2014 AIA Canada Student Aftermarket Day

On November 18, 2014, Emily Chung was a guest speaker in the Career Paths Panel at the AIA Canada’s Student Aftermarket Day. She shared her experience with the auto aftermarket industry, talked about the various roles she undertakes at AutoNiche and sent a positive message about women working in a male-dominated industry. She was humbled to share the panel with representatives from Uni-Select & Mevotech. The aftermarket plays a huge role in our business, and a lot people don’t realize that many aftermarket companies manufacture for OE (e.g. Toyota, GM, BMW, etc). Emily firmly believes that the only way to grow in the auto industry is to continue working together, pursuing excellence in our role within the industry chain

Real Winter Tires: What To Look For

Real Winter Tires: What To Look For

Shopping around for winter tires? Tires in general are a subjective purchase and there are so many options to choose from, like buying ‘white’ wedding invitations—pearl white, cloud white, bright white, super-clean-teeth white. You get the idea. Here are some tips from Transport Canada to keep in mind when buying winter tires: Look for the peaked mountain with snowflake symbol when shopping for winter tires. Tires marked with this symbol meet specific snow traction performance requirements and have been designed specifically for use in severe snow conditions. There are some tires that are marketed as all-weather tires and may have a snowflake design (see example images below), but if it’s not the peaked mountain symbol, it isn’t a winter tire. Tires marked M+S (Mud and Snow) ... read more
