Tire rotation and changes 

There are plenty of ways to extend the lifespan of your tires. Ensuring you keep your tires inflated to the proper pressure and rotating them helps extend their life. If your tires are worn down, have them replaced sooner rather than later. One way to know whether or not to change them is by the penny test. If you put Lincoln head down between the trends and you can see him, you will need to change your tires soon. 

Brake Repair 

If your brakes are grinding, vibrating or do not respond right away, it may be time to change them out. An easy way to get into an accident in the winter is not being able to brake fast enough when it is slippery out. There is no exact timeline as to when you should replace your brakes so always keep your ears out for noises out of the norm when you brake.

Wiper Blade Replacements 

Wiping your windshields before they are completely thawed may ruin your wiper blades. Replace them to make sure you have the ability to see no matter how hard it is raining or snowing. 

Complimentary Services 

While these services are not mandatory for winter, they are worth mentioning. We always make sure to do a multi-point inspection, battery test, tire inflation check and we hand-wash then vacuum your vehicle.
