  • Wiper blades. Check your windshield wiper blades. After winter, they’ve probably had the most workout they’ll get all year. Now’s the time to see if they’re worn, and need to be replaced.
  • Tires. Tires also travel in rougher conditions in winter, and depending on where you live, they’ve had to contend with roads slick with heavy rains, snow, and even ice. Muddy roads also create challenges for tire performance. Now’s the time to check the treads. Less than 4/32 inches of tread means you need to buy some new tires. One old trick for easily checking the tread depth is putting a quarter in the groove of a tire, with George Washington’s head pointing down. If the top of George Washington’s head shows, you have less tread than you need. Time to go shopping. If your tires are okay, make sure they’re properly inflated. Check the psi recommendations that appear on the tire itself. If your tires are underinflated, your handling and braking of your vehicle will be more difficult. Underinflated tires also wear faster.
  • Battery. Check your battery to see if there’s any corrosion or any other problems. Take your vehicle to an automotive shop to have your car looked over for any mechanical issues. It’s better to be proactive than to have a problem on the road.
