Come and talk to the friendly folks at Fountain Tire.

The KSA runs on community support. Whether that’s volunteer effort, public sector funding or corporate sponsorship, community support is what makes the wheels on the KSA bus go round and round. 

We’re happy to announce that Fountain Tire in Whitehorse has joined the KSA this year as a corporate sponsor, offering a five per cent discount off all regularly priced parts and tires. That’s great news considering that a set of four high-end truck tires can run upwards of $2,000 nowadays. The hundred bucks you save could buy the first tank of fuel you burn on your new tires.

Most people think of Fountain Tire as simply a tire shop. Sure, they sell passenger car and light truck tires from Goodyear, Dunlop, Kelly, Kumho and other brands. They also sell commercial, agricultural and industrial tires for construction equipment. They’ll supply, install and balance your new tires, rotate them so they last and fix them if they ever go flat. They’ll even do the seasonal changeovers if you have winter tires and they’ll store your off-season tires so you don’t have to lug them around or make space for them at home.

Fountain Tire is also an automotive service and repair shop that does oil and other fluid changes; brake, exhaust, battery and shock replacements; tune-ups; and electrical and transmission work. They’ll even perform pre-trip vehicle inspections to give you peace of mind when making those long trips to visit friends and family south of 60. 

The Fountain Tire motto is “We’re On This Road Together.” Thanks to their generous corporate support, I’d say, “We’re On This Ride Together.” Business owner Sheldon Greenough and the crew wish everyone a great snowmobile season. They remind us all to ride safe and ride sober.

Fountain Tire is open Monday through Saturday at 2283-2nd Avenue beside Home Hardware and across from the Days Inn, or they can be reached at 867-668-6171, www.fountaintire.com/stores/details/105 or [email protected].
