Full Answer

The first "Canadian Tire" catalogue was published six years after the company was founded in 1928 by J.W. and A.J. Billes. While the company was originally known for the sale of tires, Canadian Tire moved into many new departments, including home goods, sporting goods and apparel. Some catalogues are still available for purchase. These catalogues are for special orders when the consumer wants a customized product.

  • Q:

    How can you flatten a tire?

    A:

    Safely deflate a tire by depressing the relief valve located at the top of its valve stem. Tires are commonly bled or aired down to one-third of their standard highway-driving pressure to allow for better traction when driven in snow or sand. Bleeding down works by increasing each tire's footprint.
