Winter Tires Make A Big Difference, Says MPI Report

Vehicles equipped with winter tires are in fewer crashes than vehicles without winter tires, according to a Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) report issued last year.

Based on analysis of winter month claims between November and March, winter tire use is estimated to reduce collision claim frequency by 6.3 per cent. The analysis was based on collision claims over the insurance years 2011-12 to 2017-18. Frequency was measured by comparing claim frequency before and after a winter tire purchase for 111,872 vehicles.
