Switch out those winter tires

When it comes to spring car maintenance, first thing’s first – switch out your winter tires for summer ones.

Surprisingly enough, many people don’t even bother removing their winter tires. While these are ideal for winter weather conditions, winter tires actually compromise traction on dry and wet roads. Wash your winter tires thoroughly, removing leftover salt stains, then make sure to store them in a cool and dry place.

If your car’s sporting all-season tires, it’s wise to check their pressure and tread – if you notice any uneven wear, you may need to get them aligned. If this past winter has been especially hard on your tires, it may be time to abandon them altogether in favour of new ones. Remember: safe tires mean safe driving – skimping on new tires now could put you in serious danger down the road.
