WINDSOR, Ontario (Dec. 17, 2015) — FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Canada Inc. has added a winter-wheel assemblies package to its Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealers' menu of services.
The new service offers customers winter tires mounted and balanced on steel wheels and with tire pressure monitoring system sensors installed. Customers who order such tire/wheel/TPMS packages can then have their local FCA dealer take care of their summer-winter tire changeover.
“Mopar is rolling out our first-ever offering of winter wheel assemblies for those customers who desire a little extra control during the cold weather seasons,” said Pietro Gorlier, head of parts and service (Mopar), FCA – Global.
“The assemblies arrive ready to install and deliver additional peace of mind, even in areas unaffected by the harshest winter weather.”
Winter wheel assemblies are available for a range of FCA vehicles, the company said, including the Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Charger (AWD and RWD), Chrysler Town & Country, Chrysler 300 (AWD and RWD), Chrysler 200 and Jeep Cherokee.
The program is scheduled to expand to encompass even more vehicle models next year.
Mopar winter wheel assemblies will be priced around $285 per wheel, depending on the vehicle (dealer installation is separate). Customers can visit their local FCA Canada dealership for more information.
FCA Canada said it will offer a variety of popular tire brands, including Bridgestone, BF Goodrich, Continental, Goodyear, Michelin, Pirelli, Yokohama, etc. All told, FCA said its program this year covers more 1,100 winter tire fitments,
Mopar — a contraction of the words MOtor and PARts — is FCA's service, parts and customer-care brand. It was trademarked in 1937 with the launch of an antifreeze product.
