Tires  Fall is a good time to rotate tires, for more even wear and a more comfortable ride. In winter, pressure should be checked weekly. Always check tire pressure in the driveway, since driving as little as a mile to the supermarket can affect the reading.  And don’t forget to check the spare, too, especially if you’ve been lucky and haven’t needed it for a while.  #studdedtyres

Tire Pressure   Have you ever noticed your car’s tire pressure light sometimes comes on during the winter? Or maybe you’ve noticed that your car just isn’t getting the same gas mileage as it used to? Under-inflated tires can lower your gas mileage and are typically more prone to damage (flats, blow-outs, etc.). Check your tire pressure to make sure the cold weather hasn’t deflated them.  #wintertyres

Battery Cold weather can be hard on your battery. Before temperatures dip, check the battery posts and connections to ensure they're free of corrosion. Check the water level in the battery, and if it's an older battery, consider having a mechanic test its ability to retain a charge. #wintertires

Ensure lights and signals are in working order Walk around your vehicle and check that the headlights, taillights, break lights, turn signals, and hazard lights are working properly. You’ll also want to be sure the lights are free of debris, and take time to clean them during your trip as built-up snow, ice, and dirt can reduce their effectiveness. #allweathertires

Tire Care  Spinning out in the snow isn’t the best way to discover your tires are worn out. Examine your tire’s tread for uneven wearing and cupping. If any tire has less than 3/32 –inches of tread, it should be replaced. Also, check the sidewalls for any cuts and nicks. Rotate tires as recommended. #allseasontires

Check the antifreeze  Use an antifreeze tester to draw a few drops of antifreeze from the radiator or overflow. This will give information on the current freezing point of your car's antifreeze. Check the normal lowest temperature for your area, and add more antifreeze as needed to make sure your engine block does not freeze.  #wintertyres
