How to Prepare Your Car for Colder and Wetter Weather

There are several steps you can take now to prepare your car for the challenge of winter.

1. Get your tyres road-ready

First, make sure your tyres are up to scratch by checking their pressures and tread depths. A Tyre Pressure and Tyre Tread Gauge are what you need. If you find your tyres need extra air, then a rapid tyre inflator is useful to save your legs from the foot pump!

2. Keep your windscreen clear

There is nothing worse than a dirty windscreen and an empty screen wash reservoir. Avoid getting caught out by filling up with screen wash.

Upgrading your windscreen wiper blades is a great way to keep your windscreen clear. If your car has standard blades, you can upgrade to flat ones. Flat blades can be upgraded to flat silicone with hydrophobic technology.

3. Maximise your visibility

A clear windscreen is important, but so are all your other windows. You can add a rain repellent is a great little product that repels rain, sleet and snow. It also helps prevent a frost build-up.

4. Protect your interior and exterior

Rain makes mud and that makes a car messy inside and out. You can solve this problem by picking up protective covers and mats. For the exterior, how about a car cover to protect your car from pollution, rain, ice, snow and UV rays.

5. Make your car shine

Your car will thank you for giving its paintwork a bit of love. A pressure washer will make short work of cleaning the car.
