How to Prepare Your Car for Indiana Winters

We're well into the winter season here in northwest Indiana, but it's not too late get your car into winter-ready condition. With help from our team of auto maintenance experts, you can prepare your car for the worst that the cold months have to offer.

  • Tires:This oft-overlooked step can make a world of difference in cold-weather performance. Normal all-weather tires aren't actually designed to handle the extreme cold seen in Midwest winters. Neither are they designed to maintain grip in snow. For the best results, we recommend purchasing a set of winter tires. They can help even rear-wheel drive vehicles handle the elements with ease. Plus, they'll last a long time since you'll only use them a few months out of the year.
  • Wiper Blades: If you can't keep snow, rain, and sleet off of your windshield, you'll have problems seeing. That's why we recommend installing a fresh set of high-quality blades for winter. We can help you pick out a durable set that fits your specific make and model.
  • Anti-Freeze: This important fluid keeps key components in your engine from freezing. It's a good idea to check anti-freeze and top it off if necessary when winter comes around.
  • Battery: A fresh battery can save you from major headaches during winter. There's hardly anything worse than being stranded in the freezing cold, after all.
