Tire Centre | St-Hubert Toyota
Choosing tires that provide the best safety and value for your driving conditions can be a difficult task. St-Hubert Toyota's Tire Centre specialists are available to help you make an informed choice, taking into account the average number of kilometers traveled each year, how often you drive, and under what conditions.
Whether it's for summer tires, all-season tires, or winter tires, our experts will be able to find the tires that are best for your vehicle.
Your tires carry the entire weight of your vehicle. Keeping your tires properly inflated is essential for the performance and longevity of the tire as well as maintaining the ride quality and safety of your vehicle.
Rolling resistance increases as tires lose air, resulting in increased fuel consumption. Handling will lose responsiveness and uneven tire pressure may lead to uneven tire wear.
Your vehicle may be equipped with a technically-advanced Tire Pressure Monitoring System. While this tool keeps you informed about your tire pressure, it is no substitute for regular tire maintenance. Toyota recommands regular, first-hand visual inspection of your tires, as well as pressure check.
Your tire tread will gradually wear away over time which will have an impact on both traction and braking time.
Regularly inspecting your tires will help determine when they should be replaced. Tire is worn to "wear indicator" or to minimum allowable limit as per tire manufacturer, (1.6mm or 2/32" for all season and 4mm or 5/32" for winter tires). A good trick to measure tire's wear is to insert a 25 cent piece into the tire's grooves with the nose of the caribou facing downward. If the caribou's nose is not visible, the depth is equal or superior to 6/32". If the nose is visible, this means your tires needs to be changed.
Our technicians are able to check your tires tread depth and do a thorough examination for any signs that would indicate that your tires need to be replaced.
Regularly rotating your vehicle's tires will help you achieve more uniform wear, will increase the useful life of the tire, and improve braking and handling performance.
Check your Owner's Manual Supplement for recommended tire rotation intervals.

There are several types of tires that meet different needs. Your St-Hubert Toyota dealer has all the necessary skills you need to recommend the right tires at the right price.
Summer tires are specifically designed for use in warmer conditions. The focus of summer tires is solely on high level of grip, traction, and performance in good weather. Best of all, if you own a sportier model, running a set of summer tires in the warmer months can enhance handling precision, steering response, and all-round performance and driving enjoyment.
All Season Tires
Most vehicles are equipped with All Season Tires. The main appeals of an all-season tire are : Low rolling resistance and improved fuel efficiency, good, nimble performance in a wide variety of conditions, long tread life, and ride comfort and quiet ride.
Light Truck Tires
Light Truck Tires can be equipped on Trucks and SUVs and are designed for Off-road traction, High-level performance, On-road handling and comfort, and All-weather, all purpose.
Much too often, winter tires are portrayed as "snow tires". The truth is, winter tires are not only designed to perform in snowy conditions, but they are intended to provide optimal performance in cold weather temperatures as well. Therefore, even in the absence of snow on the road surface, your winter tires will continue to provide you with the performance and safety you expect.
Winter tires are particularly effective under difficult environmental conditions (snow, ice and mud) and at low temperatures, below +7°C. It is recommended to install winter tires on all four wheels. To make switching tires easier, we use aluminum or steel rims.
In Quebec, winter tires are legally required between December 1st and March 15th for passenger vehicles. Tires specifically designed for winter driving constitute a safe solution for driving in winter.
