Your car's winter tires may not be used very often, but they still have to be taken care of properly. To ensure your winter tires are stored properly and well maintained, use these tips from Ace Hi Oil.

Get to Know Your Winter Tires

Your car's tires are super important if you want to keep your car moving safely. With that said, the changing winter conditions may be too much for your regular tires to handle. If this is the case, winter tires may be the perfect option for you. To learn more about these, continue reading.

A synthetic oil change in Southlake can keep your car at its best. Use AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil to keep it running strong. Contact the pros at Ace Hi Oil at (888) 459-9958 to learn more. You can also shop their online store at your convenience.

Keep Your Car Safe

You may not think about your tires often or even at all. Unless you get a flat, you may even forget they're there. However, during the winter, your tires may have a rougher time keeping you safe due to the weather and climate. Because of this, it's important that you know whether your car will fare better with winter tires. These sorts of tires are made to perform better than all-weather tires when temperatures fall below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Your all-weather tires will become stiffer and lose traction on the road when temperatures are consistently below 45, which can make the road even more dangerous. To ensure your tires won't get worn down faster and that you're safe on the road, be sure to change all four tires to winter tires.

Check Your Tire Pressure Often

Once you've changed your tires to your winter option, you'll still have to check on them regularly just like you do with your regular tires. Take some time at least once a month to check the tire pressure of each one of your tires. Since colder temperatures can lead to your tires losing air pressure more quickly than usual, you'll want to keep an eye on this. Keep in mind that driving on underinflated tires can lead to premature wear as well as deformations on your tires, so it's not something to be ignored. On top of this, your tires won't be able to perform at their best, which can be dangerous for you as you try to maneuver around the winter roads.

Take a Look at the Tire Tread

As you're checking the air pressure of your tires, this is also a great time to check on your tire tread. No matter what type of tires you're using, it's super important that your tires have sufficient tread on them to keep you safe on the road. If the tread is too worn, your tires will have a harder time gripping the road, leaving you more susceptible to slipping and sliding. Use the penny test to ensure you have enough tread on your tires to make it safely through the winter.

Store Your Tires Properly

Once winter is over, you'll need to change your tires back to your regular set. During the rest of the year, you can store your winter tires until they're needed once more. It's important that you know how to store them properly since improper storage can actually ruin them, leaving you needing a whole new set next winter. As you prepare to store them, look for the right space. This area should be a dry, dark area so that your tires don't suffer damage. Avoid placing them in an area where they will come into contact with grease or other substances that can lead to wear. Ideally, you should store them indoors but do your best to keep them off the floor. Look for a shelf in your garage where you can be sure they won't end up in a puddle. It's best not to stack them and instead stand them up if possible. Before storing them, do make sure to clean them thoroughly. This will keep them in better shape and ensure they're ready to go next winter. Once they're clean and you have a space set apart for them, wrap them up in waterproof bags. This will keep moisture out while also keeping necessary oils lubricating the tires from evaporating while stored.
