Check Your Tires with the Penny Test

One of the easiest things you can do at home to make sure your car is ready for winter is to check your tire tread with the penny test. Slip a penny head-first between your tire's tread to see how deep it is. If you can still see the top of the head on the coin, it means your tire tread is low and that you should replace your tires soon. Low tire tread makes it harder for your tires to gain traction, which can be especially unsafe in winter when the roads are more hazardous.

Switch to Winter Tires

Winter tires are designed to work better in cold, snowy weather. They're softer and more flexible than other types of tires, which makes them better at gaining traction on cold pavement. They also have deeper, wider tread patterns, making them your first line of defense when it comes to driving on snowy, slushy roads.

If you don't already have a set of winter tires, we can help you find the right fit for your car. We can guide you towards the right fit and install them for you.
