Aaron Knutz with Les Schwab shares tips to get your car winter ready.
How to get your vehicle ready for winter safety:
. With winter storms just around the corner it is important to get your tires checked to make sure they will run properly during the winter weather.
. 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 road.
. Low tread depth can be unsafe when driving in the snow and ice because they can cause you to lose traction and slide.
. Your tires need to have proper air pressure and tread to help keep you safe while driving in cold, wet weather.
. Snow tires improve winter driving especially if you live in the mountains or on the bench area where you get more snow fall.
. Snow tires have a deeper tread depth and different rubber compound to help grip the road in winter conditions.
. If your vehicle isn’t properly aligned it can 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.
