All Star Automotive Group Winter Driving Tips!

Stay Safe This Winter – All Star Automotive Group

It’s time to ensure that both you and your vehicle are ready for the winter! Driving can be a little tricky during the colder months of the year and your vehicle needs to be prepared. Winter Air temperatures here in Louisiana typically range 40- to 50-degrees Fahrenheit colder than typical summer temperatures, which means tire pressures naturally change. Tire pressure should be checked weekly because of the temperature drop. Low tire pressures wastes fuel and more importantly, causes the tire to run hotter from the extra friction. Your vehicle’s tires should have between 3-5 psi higher than normal pressure for winter driving. Pressure increase helps offset reduced hot tires.

All tire pressures are meant to be measured in a cold state. This means the tires are at the same temperature as the outside air. If you park your vehicle outside or in an unheated area such as a detached garage, it is best to measure tire pressures first thing in the morning. Cold mornings are a hassle already, but this is when tire pressures are ideal. If you were to measure your tire pressure at any other time, you are recording useless data because the tires are not completely cold.

Check your vehicles manual for dashboard lights and meanings. If you are unable to check your tire pressure yourself, it is possible that your vehicle will let you know of low tire pressures on its own. Look for a warning light that looks like an exclamation point with parenthesis around it. This light will automatically turn on if your tire pressure is low. Take this caution light seriously and cater to your tires.

Also, be sure to fuel your vehicle fully in case your tires go out while driving and you are forced to stop. Pull over to a safe location with your hazard lights on for everyone to see. Staying noticed and letting drivers be aware of your location is essential for your safety. A full tank of gas will allow you stay warm while you wait for help. All Star Automotive can assure your tire safety in the colder months! Click here to schedule your service appointment today.
