    Default Winter is coming!

    Unfortunately winter is slowly approaching but at GTR Auto we can get you prepared for whatever mother nature decides to throw at us

    We have access to a variety of winter tires from the popular big brands to ones that will fit your budget! Some of these brands include:

    - Michelin
    - Toyo
    - Continental
    - Pirelli
    - Yokohama
    - Bridgestone
    - Gislaved
    - Kumho
    - Cooper
    - Dunlop

    To go along with these tires we have many rim options available! Additionally we also have the ability to stud tires!
    *Will match or beat almost any other retailer!

    To continue the theme of keeping your car ready for winter we also have coolant and oil pan heaters which will make your vehicle start much easier in colder conditions!

    For diesels we highly reccomend using an anti-gel such as the Lubromoly Diesel Flow which Increases the fluidity and filter flow properties of the diesel fuel. It can be used down to 31 C outdoor temperature (dependent on the quality of the diesel fuel), and guarantees reliability of all diesel-powered engines at low temperatures.

    Natty speaks highly of the Gislaved's. I'm considering a studded set. Anyone else have experience with them? The interweb seems to like them as a whole.

    I have Gislaveds on my Volvo, they aren't the studded version though. They've served me quite well, good tread life.

    I have heard really good reviews on them from several people and that's all Valentine sells for winters I believe .

    Pics from last year's winter. Is your life and those of people in your car worth less than the price of winter tires?

    Get ready now.
