Jack Frost is almost back from his year-long vacation and he’s ready to wreak havoc on the roads. That means your MINI Cooper needs to be equipped with the right tools. Budds’ MINI Oakville has what you need to fend off Mr. Frost and his perilous winter road conditions: MINI Cold Weather Wheel Packages.

For winter performance, Budds’ MINI Oakville carries the latest lineup of tires to make sure your MINI Cooper is good to go once the snow hits the roads. Everyone in Oakville and the GTA knows that we’re serious about what we do, whether it’s getting you the genuine MINI parts you want or certified MINI service to keep your MINI Cooper running smoothly. So we’ve decided to break down the incredible winter tire offerings we have this year.

We’ve teamed up with tire manufacturers Pirelli and Dunlop to give you the following options for your MINI Cooper:

Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D RSC, Run-Flat

These Dunlop snow tires can be installed on your MINI Cooper in two ways: as 175/60R16 82H specs on 16” steel rims with hubcaps, or as 195/55/R16 87V (excluding JCW models) on 16” cross-spoke alloy rims. Either way, you’ll be styling and safe sitting on reactive silica mixed tires that bear the severe snow rating badge. These tires feature a directional tread design with three different types of sipes to provide superior traction. The central tread block is designed with “pulling” sipes to improve traction while accelerating/braking, while the intermediate blocks have high-amplitude sipes for better lateral stability. Lastly, the outlying shoulder blocks have a 3D sipe-interlocking design for an increased dry road experience while maintaining the flexibility necessary to improve snow and ice traction.

Pirelli Winter 190 Snowcontrol

Mounted on 15” steel rims with covers, these performance snow tires are spec’d at 175/65/R15 84T (excluding S and JCW models) and also have the severe snow rating stamp of approval. Featuring a high-silica tread compound, a siped, directional tread pattern and twin steel belts reinforced with nylon improve high-speed durability.

Pirelli W240 Snowsport, Run-Flat

Severe snow rated and high-speed performance-ready, the Pirelli Snowsport tires’ specs are 205/45/R17 84V and mounted on 17” flame-spoke alloy rims. With an asymmetrical tread and broad shoulder blocks to enhance dry-road handling, these tires are made from a pure silica compound. With the wide grooves and variable geometry tread blocks on these tires, Jack Frost will be no match for your MINI Cooper.

Budds’ MINI Oakville also has a selection of MINI Cold Weather Wheel Packages for Convertible, Clubman and Countryman MINIs. Our MINI service professionals recommend installing winter tires in sets of 4 to maximize handling and responsiveness.
