As the temperature decreases, you will notice a decrease in air pressure as well. For every ten degree drop in temperature, the tires can lose one pound per square inch of air. Before you drive, make sure to check the air pressure in each tire. By doing this before you drive, you will prevent the chance of getting a false reading. When you drive, the tires will warm up and expand, thus resulting in an air pressure reading that is not as correct as it should be. We will also be more than happy to check the air pressure in the tires for you. That way you can help to ensure that the tires are reliable for you in the winter.

Adjust Driving

You will also have to adjust your driving in the winter. Snow can quickly build up and cause the roads to become slick and slippery when you need to drive. You will want to make sure to slow down and take your time. This will help you arrive to your destination safely and without any issues. If there is rain or freezing rain, you will have to watch the roadway for any chance of ice occurring. Driving on ice will become dangerous, especially if you slam on the brakes. It will cause you to slide and lose control of the vehicle.

If you start to notice poor handling with your vehicle, make sure that you stay calm and do not over correct the steering wheel. Sometimes if you panic and over correct, you may end up going in the ditch. Remember to leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you as you drive. This way is someone applies their brakes in front of you, it gives you enough time and distance to slow down and brake as well.
