Winter Vehicle Preparation Tips

Naturally, winter vehicle preparation includes a winter tire swap, as these tires boast a softer rubber compound and aggressive tread patterns tailor-made for braving extreme temperatures, snow, ice, and slush. In addition to installing winter tires, we strongly suggest checking your engine oil and vital fluids, as well as your battery. Indeed, car batteries are especially vulnerable to cold and extreme weather, and an inspection will help determine whether yours is healthy enough to keep running through the winter. We also recommend checking your brakes, as your stopping distances will be greater on winter drives, and don’t forget to take a look at your windshield wipers as well, since they’ll be key to your visibility at the wheel when driving during a snowfall. Lastly, keep your tire pressure gauge handy at all times and check your winter tire pressure on a monthly basis, as extreme conditions can often cause it to vary.
