Introducing Evertree Mountain States
Fall is here, and that means winter is close behind it. Unfortunately, many car accidents happen during wet or icy weather. Here at Evertree Mountain States, serving the greater Arvada, CO area, we want to help you avoid as many accidents and mishaps as possible. Here are some tips to help you prepare your car for wet winter weather.
Check Your Tires
One of the most important things to help prepare your car for wet winter weather is checking your tires. As you check your tires, you want to look for signs of damage to your tire, such as bulging along the seams or nails embedded in the tire. You also want to ensure your tires are inflated to the right amount of pressure. Finally, check the tread on your tires. If the tread is low, you should consider replacing the tires before you drive on wet or icy roads.
Replace Your Windshield Wipers
Another important thing that you should do to prepare your car for wet winter weather is to replace your windshield wipers. You should also check your wiper fluid levels and refill them if needed. You want to ensure that you can see as you drive, and a streaky windshield makes it harder to see the road.
Test Your Battery
Lastly, consider having your battery tested before winter. While a bad battery will not lead to an accident, it can leave you stranded if you go out on a cold day. As such, testing it and replacing it before cold winter weather hits are strongly recommended.
