In winter, you need to ride on winter tires, this is the law, but it is expensive.
A few years ago, Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) proposed to create a program that would allow everyone to purchase winter tires on credit, and even cover the “re-fitting” of cars, etc.
This is how the MPI Manitoba Winter Tire Program appeared, the program works, and it is quite simple. You can get a loan of up to $ 2,000 per vehicle to purchase winter tires and related costs, including replacement and storage. They even cover the rims!
Interest is a mere prime plus 2 percent. This is really profitable, and you get installments up to 4 years to pay low enough monthly payments. For the safety of your family, you can really afford to use this program.
There are some limitations:
You must be an individual, no companies allowed.
Do not have restrictions on financing or outstanding debts on your MPI account.
It should be a purchase of tires for a car or light truck.
You should buy Snowflake Mountain tires, on the tire itself should be certain a logo.
Your dealer must take care to determine the right tires and your eligibility. You just need to bring to the dealership a couple of things:
Vehicle registration certificate and your driver's license or identity card.
Choose a financing period from one to four years and a monthly payment day.
Choose which existing bank or credit card to link this loan to.
A telephone number and preferred Autopac agent.
