Get Your Tires Ready For The Rigors Of Winter Driving

Posted on

With daylight saving time coming to an end, winter is at the doorstep, and that means that motorists need to get in the habit of conducting the type of preventative maintenance that can keep an accident at bay.  Tires are going to play a critical role in that regard, and therefore citizens might take a look at the tips included in a new report.

Depending on where you live, it may be in your best interest to invest in a set of winter tires for the coming months, as these should do a better job gripping the road and helping you get to your destination safely.

However, if you live in those parts of Southern California where snow doesn’t really need to be a consideration, you may be able to get away with the same tires you’d have at any other time of the year, so long as you see to their upkeep.  Keep them at the pressure they need to be at for optimum usage as suggested by the owner’s manual, and replace them when the tread has worn down to the point that the tire is uneven or won’t be able to properly grip the road.

As you see to this, make sure that you’re also conducting the same kind of work on your spare.  Have such a tire available at all times in case you’re sidelined by a flat, and get this replaced by a primary tire as soon as possible.
