When you’re thinking about protecting your family some of the first things you think about is providing a safe home in a safe community, providing safe healthy food and driving a safe car. Now, when I first got my vehicle I never really considered my tires. I figured as long as the car is safe, not falling apart and I drive like a responsible adult we’d be safe. Sadly, no matter how well you drive and how safe your vehicle technically is without quality tires you’re never 100% safe.
Being a new driver, I was instantly in the market for a safe, quality vehicle. Thankfully, I was offered so generously by my parents their Toyota FJ Cruiser. I didn’t hesitate on the offer as I always loved it and still do after driving it almost a year now. As a new driver, I’ve also learned the importance of checking your tires often. Check to ensure the bolts are all securely on, that there is no debris in or around your tires and the pressure is at a good driving standard. Just like a home, Tires are the foundation of your vehicle, and without a solid foundation life could come crashing around you.
Finding Quality Tires to Keep You Safe
Of course, I’ve shopped around for tires quite regularly. You never know when you’ll need a new set of tires so knowing what you’ll need before you need them is my way of avoiding a frustrating situation. I of course go to my Dad for all vehicle things and he highly recommended Sailun Tires as my tire manufacturer. I’ve used Sailun Tires in the past for off roading tires, and they did amazing getting through the muck but I never thought Sailun Tires for everyday driving, silly me. If they can handle the bush, they can handle me!
Just this summer alone, I learnt how important good tires are. On our road trip out west last summer I was confronted by a family of deer. That’s right, a FAMILY. We were just outside of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan attempting to find a hotel for the night when a family of deer decided to say hello to me.
Now, I would like to remind you I am a NEW driver. At that point I was very new. Thankfully I took driver training and had amazing tires on the truck or we would of been road meat. My tires and my quick Mama Bear reflexes saved our lives. I showed those deer who was boss, and then a big rig behind me showed me who was boss and squished a deer in front of us after he passed me mad that I slammed on brakes for the deer. FYI, watch out for flying deer on the TransCanada 1 highway. I thought I’d be safe following the big rigs, but they just plow through the deer versus slamming on brakes and moving.
Sailun Tires Wins with PTPA!
The Sailun Tires quote, even though so small it speaks so much. Having tires with me every turn of the way is refreshing. Keeping my small little family is my biggest motivation in the world. If they aren’t safe, no one is safe. My vehicle is what I like to call safe. It is big, loud and tough. It may be all those things, but it is also safe because I have quality, safe tires on it as well.
