Check the brakes and tiresDriving in wind, rain and soon snow requires good stopping power. That means good brakes and tires. Don’t wait until you are in an emergency situation to discover that either aren’t up to par or unsafe. Some things to look for:
- Worn treads on a tire don’t lie, and if the wear bars are showing, you should look at new tires before winter hits.
- Tire pressure changes as the temperatures drop, so stay on top of keeping the pressure at levels recommended by the manufacturer.
- Most cars nowadays have tire level warnings, so simply pay attention to and act on those signals.
