Winter Driving Takes a Toll on your Tires and Alignment

Winter driving conditions are harsh, and may have caused more than the usual level of wear and tear on your tires. Bring your car in to have an experienced mechanic check the tire tread depths.

You’ll also want to check your front end alignment, especially if you notice that your car is shaking once you reach specific speeds. This could be a sign that your alignment is off and needs to be dealt with.

Change in Seasons is a Good Time to Change Wipers

Spring and fall are good times to change your car’s wipers. These necessary items on your vehicle can’t do an effective job unless they are in peak condition. The last thing you want is to be caught in a storm, only to find out your wiper blades are not cleaning off the full range of your windshield.

Even if you don’t “think” you need to switch them out, arrange a change as a matter of course a couple of times a year. Taking a proactive step to ensure that your wipers are working properly when you need them is a wise move.
