Chevy Service 101: How To Avoid Getting Stuck In The Snow

February 10th, 2022 by

It’s that time of year again, that wonderful time of year when you have to worry about the state of the roads! Snow and ice can really ruin your day if you let it, but thankfully our Chevy service department is here to help ensure that doesn’t happen. In this quick guide, we’ll be covering some tips and tricks that may just keep your vehicle from losing traction on the road.

Get Those Tires Checked Out

Your vehicle’s tires are its first line of defense against losing contact with the road. Having a good tread depth on your tires can mean the difference between staying on the road and sliding off of it. Should your tire tread be sufficiently worn down, it may be time to replace those tires!

Consider Buying Snow Tires or Chains

To further ensure you aren’t sliding around the road, snow tires or tire chains can provide that extra edge when it comes to traction. Snow tires have specially designed treads to maximize surface area and traction, even through snow and ice.

Check Your Tire’s Pressure

Your vehicle’s manufacturer will recommend a certain tire pressure based on your vehicle’s weight, but snow and ice can complicate this matter. To help reduce the possibility of hydroplaning or losing traction, it is recommended that your tire pressure be between 30 and 35 PSI during the winter.

Your winter driving skills may be refined, but they pale in comparison to putting in the time to prepare for the snow and ice. To help prep you for winter conditions, make your way down to
