Taking care of your car is a year-round gig.

Fall is in full swing and the winter is fast approaching.

So, we’ve decided to arm you with three maintenance tips that will ensure your car is in tip-top shape for the next 3-4 months.

Let’s jump right in:

Tip 1—Improve Performance by Investing in Winter Tires

There’s no such thing as “all-season” tires. Never use tires that are wide and have a low profile go to website. These tires are horrible in the snow. Always use tires that have a tread pattern that’s made for snow while still performing well on dry roads.

Tip 2—Make Sure Your Safe (and Save Money) by Regularly Checking Your Tire Pressure

Your car’s tires will lose one pound of pressure for every 10 degrees drop in temperature. As the weather gets colder, you should be keeping a close eye on your tire pressure—checking once or twice a week is recommended.

Tip 3—Check Your Battery for Peace of Mind

The last thing you want is to have a car that won’t move on a cold winter day. Check your battery to ensure this doesn’t happen. If your battery is bad, replace it with a new one that’s of great quality. With batteries, spending a little extra money upfront is usually worth it in the long run.

Use these three winter maintenance tips to be ready for a change in weather. If you need some help or are interested in upgrading parts of your car, please don’t hesitate to give Colorado Axle n Gear a call.
