Yokohama Tire wants drivers to welcome spring with up to $70 rebate on select tires

Langley, BC (March 16, 2020) Yokohama Tire (Canada) Inc. is making it more attractive to drive into Spring, with rebates of up to $70 on a set of four performance, all-season or light truck tires. 

“We want to reward Canadians for making the switch to winter tires by welcoming them to Spring with rebates on our ADVAN, AVID AND GEOLANDAR lines, as well as the PARADA SPEC-X,” said Diana Colosimo, Brand Development Manager for Yokohama Tire (Canada) Inc. “Once the temperature is consistently up above 7 Celsius, it’s time to put away the winter skis, coats and tires and start enjoying the benefits of all-season tires.  Switching to all-season tires provides extended tire wear, a serene ride and improved fuel economy, and we’re making it more attractive to choose Yokohama for warm-weather driving with the 2020 Yokohama Spring Rebate.”

Topping the list of incentives is a chance for buyers to win back the purchase price of their new tires in addition to their rebate claim of $70 (for a set of four tires). Customers are asked to claim their Yokohama VISA prepaid cards at yokohamarebate.ca and will then be automatically entered into the contest to win the purchase price of their set (up to $850).

Now through May 31, 2020, customers can receive $70 rebates on high-performance tires (ADVAN APEX, ADVAN SPORT A/S+, ADVAN FLEVA, ADVAN NEOVA AD08R, ADVAN SPORT V105, ADVAN SPORT V105 ZPS), all-season tires (AVID ASCEND GT, AVID ASCEND LX, AVID ASCEND, PARADA SPEC-X) and light-truck tires (GEOLANDAR G055, GEOLANDAR H/T G056, GEOLANDAR X-CV, GEOLANDAR A/T G015, GEOLANDAR X-AT, GEOLANDAR M/T G003, GEOLANDAR X-MT G005).

As well, buyers will be eligible for a $50 rebate on a set of four AVID TOURING S all-season touring tires.
