It is the perfect time to winterize your vehicles

Local News

Erie is no stranger to snow and the brave people who drive in it for the bulk of  the winter. Although we are accustomed that doesn’t mean we hit the road unprepared. “Make sure your tires are ready make sure they are aired up get your snow tires on the sooner the better,” said President of Tires for Less Norm Loesch.

Once you have the right tires, keeping items like a snow brush, shovel, kitty litter, sand, blankets, and a candle if you get stuck can help you make it through. Make sure that the tire pressure isn’t low and that all four tires are ready for snow. It was a busy day for the crew at Tires for Less since 75 cars came in to get their snow tires on.

“We had good snow tires on our plow truck and we couldn’t get through so we came here had studded snow tires put on,” said David Mattison.

Remember to check all your fluid levels it’s best to do it now before it gets too cold. Another important thing is to make sure your wipers are in good condition.
