According to metrocreativeconnection. com, tire care is an especially important area of vehicle maintenance. Th e tire experts at Michelin say that regular tires may be ineff ective for winter driving. Summer tires are made from materials that are optimized for warm conditions. When the mercury drops, these same ma- terials can harden, reducing their ability to grip the road. Th at lack of traction can be compounded by the presence of snow or ice. Even all-season tires, which are designed to be driven year-round, can be insuffi cient in severe weather conditions. Winter tires can help drivers safely navi- gate winter roadways. Bridgestone Tires says that having the right snow tires matters when driving in winter weather conditions. It’s important to look for tires that can disperse water suffi ciently and also grip the road. Snow tires are designed to remain softer and more fl exible to conform to the road better in cold conditions. Some winter tires are even studded to provide better traction. Caleb Baker, service advisor at Jeff Drennen on Otsego Avenue reminds driv- ers to also check their tire pressure and their batteries. “We see a lot of tires losing air in this kind of weather,” he said. “You also want to make sure your battery is putting out its full power. Th is weather is really hard on batteries.” Baker also recommended keeping an eye on your wiper blades. “Ice can tear them up,” he said. Another important tip is to make sure you are using the right washer fl uid. “Read the bottle and see what the freez- ing point is,” Baker said. When you are ready to take off , give your vehicle a minute or two to warm up. “You need to give the oil time to circu- late,” Baker said. “It will be thicker in this weather.” However, even when your vehicle is properly maintained you may have to modify your driving techniques with these tips from metrocreativeconnec- to navigate safely on roadways during winter weather. • Drive slowly. Slow down on winter roads. Allow a greater distance for stop- ping than for dry conditions. Slippery conditions can make it more challenging to stop, and excessive speeds can make the situation worse. • Shift into low gear. On hills, rely on low gears to maximize traction to travel up and down hills. Th is can minimize skids or sliding. • Know how to recover from a skid. When skids occur on black ice or slush, drivers should take their feet off of the pedals and steer gently in the direction they want to go. As the vehicle regains traction, only then should the brakes or accelerator be applied.
