Is your car ready for snow?

Posted on December 15, 2018 at 11:05 am

With colder weather hitting many parts of the UK, snow has already started to cover the grounds in some areas. Over the last few weeks, snow has been predicted a number of times and those of us who have been lucky enough to escape it, know that it may be just around the corner. It is vital that you make sure that your car is ready not just for snow but for winter in general. With a lot of grit, mud and water on the roads, it is important that you use to keep your screen wash topped up (ideally that works below freezing). You need to be able to clean your screen regularly to enable you to maintain good vision.
Tyres are another important factor, especially during the winter months. You may find that you need to inflate your tyres when the colder weather hits as this can cause the air in them to shrink down. Be careful though not to overinflate them as this will give you less grip. Ideally, you should have winter tyres fitted during the snowy icy months, but this can be expensive. Often a good all year round tyre will be ok as long as there is plenty of tread left on it, inflated correctly and it is not damaged.
