Winter storms are just around the corner and now is the time to make sure
your car is winter ready.
Randy Schroeder, the Store Manager of Les Schwab in Layton shares tips to
make sure your tires are all checked out this winter.
How to get your vehicle ready for winter safety:
. With winter storms just around the corner it is important to get your
tires checked out so that your car is running properly in the snow.
. The key to making sure your vehicle drives properly in inclement
weather is to check the tread on your tires to ensure your vehicle can grip the
. Low tread depth can be unsafe when driving in the snow because they
can cause you to slide and loose traction
. Your tires need to have proper air pressure and tread to keep you safe
driving when its cold and wet
. Snow tires improve winter driving especially if you live in the mountains
or on the bench area where you get more snow fall
. However for most of us an all-season tire with good tread depth will be
sufficient to keep you safe on the roads this winter
. If your vehicle isn’t properly aligned it will pull to the side, making it
difficult to drive in slush and snow
. When your vehicle isn’t properly aligned your tires will also wear
improperly – causing them to wear out before expected
