At Victory Lube, we offer a full range of services for your vehicle’s tires.

Our services include tire repair, tire installation and rotation, and seasonal tire changes. We are also your source for tire and rim sales.

At Victory Lube, tire change services are performed by trusted technicians to ensure that your tire installation is precise and safe. We use the latest tire shop equipment to remove old tire(s) from the rim, install the new tire(s), and either rotate or balance them as needed.

Tire Repair

Whether your tires have been damaged by a curb or you have run over a sharp object such as a nail, it is often possible to repair your tires rather than having to replace them entirely. Our technicians will thoroughly evaluate your tires and any tire damage to determine whether this is possible, factoring in things like air pressure, tread depth, and uneven wear.

If your tires can be fixed, we can get them repaired quickly and have you on your way.

Tire Rotation

Regular tire rotation will help you get the maximum lifespan out of your vehicle’s tires and help keep you safe on the road. Not only that, but regular rotations can help boost your car’s performance and fuel efficiency. Tire rotation is necessary because tires wear unevenly as a result of the way force is distributed as you drive. This means that tire wear will vary from tire to tire, and tire rotation can even out tire wear so that no tire wears out too quickly.

Tire Balancing

To maximize the performance and life span of your tires, Victory Lube recommends regular tire balancing. And if you feel your vehicle pulling to one side, tire balancing service is likely needed sooner than later. Our tire technicians will evaluate the tire and wheel assembly, checking for imbalance and correcting it with tire weights as necessary. With properly balanced tires, you will experience a more comfortable ride, save money and better ensure the safety of you and your family.

Tire Sales

Do your tires have adequate tread depth? At Victory Lube, we carry a wide variety of tire options. So, regardless of your driving habits, vehicle or budget; we can ensure you receive the tire sales options that best fit your needs.

Seasonal Tire Changes

Despite what their name may suggest, “all-season” tires are really not the best for Canadian winters. Once the temperatures begin to drop, the rubber in these tires becomes harder, and you can lose traction making it less safe to drive.

Winter tires have deeper treads which makes them better for driving on ice and snow. But more than that, these seasonal tires are made from a softer rubber, so they perform better in cold weather even if the roads are dry.

Frequently Asked Questions

The ideal time to put on your winter tires is when the temperatures are consistently below seven degrees C. In Ontario (including our current locations in Sudbury, Midland, Val Caron and Sault Ste. Marie), this is typically mid to late November.

For the average Canadian who drives approximately 25,000 km per year, including about four months with winter tires, their winter tires should last four or five seasons. Obviously, however, there are other factors that can affect this.

For example, driving on winter tires for too long in warmer weather will shorten their lifespan since the same soft rubber that makes them superior for driving in the winter will degrade much more quickly when the temperatures rise.

According to Car Care Canada, most vehicles should have their tires rotated every 10,000 km or during every other oil change.

According to Car Care Canada, tire balancing is a service that should be performed every time a tire is replaced. That said, tire balancing can also be done as a preventative measure on some vehicles.

According to the Canadian Automobile Association, 70% of tire-related failures are due to underinflation, which can be easily remedied by having your tire pressure checked. Also, almost all tire-related problems are more likely to occur while driving on a bare tire than one with some tread remaining.

If you do feel confident changing your tire on your own, it’s always a good idea to keep tire-changing tools in your car (and know how to use them).

Both the tire manufacturer and the car manufacturer will provide recommended tire pressures. If you can’t find this information on either of their websites, contact your dealership for service specials.

Winter tire manufacturers will typically recommend tire pressures for both summer and winter tire use, so you can keep your tire pressure at this value all year long.

For summer tire use, tire manufacturers recommend tire pressures 2 to 4 psi above those for winter tire use. This is because, as the weather heats up and the tire begins to heat up as well, the air inside expands. These tire pressures can be found on your car’s door placard and in your owner’s manual.

Yes, tire pressure affects your vehicle’s fuel economy. An underinflated tire will require your engine to work harder; thus increasing your fuel consumption.

“Tire chains are really only helpful in the deepest, snowiest parts of the province,” warns CAA South Central Ontario. “Many tire chain systems can damage your car’s drivetrain over time, and impossible to use on dry pavement, so they’re no substitute for winter tires.”

Just like tire replacements and repairs, tire rotations are covered under tire warranties. The same applies to tire changes. Remember that these services can also be used as a way of diagnosing potential problems with your vehicle’s tires.
