Getting your car ready for winter

When winter approaches, it is important to ensure that your car is well prepared. For starters, check out your tire wear. A little trick to check your tires for wear is to take a 25 cents coin and insert it into one of the tread grooves of the tire by placing the nose of the caribou inside the tire. Then if you see the entire nose of the caribou, you must replace the tire because it is excessively worn out. If you have any doubts, the Point S advisors can do a more thorough inspection.

Then, it is important to inspect the following elements:

  1. 1. The tune-up of your engine
  2. 2. The electrical system, i.e. the battery, alternator and starter
  3. 3. The braking system
  4. 4. The alignment

Point S retailers offer these services and can help you prepare your car for winter.
