Prepping Your Chevy Tires Ready For Winter
Winter is here, are you prepared? Don’t let your vehicle become slide around on the roads. Your Chevy tires are your vehicle’s first line of defense against the slippery winter roads, so ensuring they are ready for the harsh weather is essential.
How Can I Check My Tires?
Every driver can ensure their tires are ready for winter all with the help of a single penny! That’s right, the “Penny Test” can be performed in only a few minutes, and can easily let you know when it’s time to get your tires replaced.
Simply insert a penny into the tread of your tire with Lincoln’s head facing down. If the top of Lincoln’s head is concealed within the tread, you’re good to go! However, if you can still see a majority of the former president’s profile, it’s most likely time for a tire replacement.
What Can I Do To Prevent Sliding On Ice?
There are a number of steps that can be taken to prevent your tires from losing contact with the road. The first and easiest thing that can be done is to check your tires out as previously mentioned. It’s free and can make a real difference in your vehicle’s ability to maintain traction.
If you’re still nervous, consider investing in a set of tire chains or snow tires. Tire chains offer a substantial boost in traction and can be put on by drivers at home. Snow tires, on the other hand, are specifically designed to handle hazardous roads. They offer the most protection against the elements and can be easily put on your vehicle at your local service center.
