Swap Your Winter Tires
Swapping your winter tires to all-season or summer tires is the ideal way to ensure proper traction during spring. Also, you will avoid prematurely wearing out your winter tire set since the spring climate is too hot for winter tires to operate safely and properly.
Get A General Inspection
After driving over snow, ice, and slush, your vehicle could experience issues or damage to its wheels, suspension, or other systems. Get a general inspection during spring for peace of mind that your vehicle is safe to operate after winter.
Perform Any Outstanding Maintenance
Your vehicle will only continue serving you reliability as you care for and maintain it properly. However, winter months can further stress your vehicle, making it a good idea to bring it in for maintenance.
Clean Your Vehicle Inside & Out
During winter, your vehicle will have salt and road debris all over the exterior, underbody, and interior carpet. Leaving salt and grime on your vehicle during spring will only result in rust, paint damage, or carpet damage, so clean your vehicle inside and out.
Get New Windshield Wipers
After the harsh winter climate, your wiper blades will experience severe wear since ice will damage the rubber part of the wiper blades, making installing a new set for spring a good idea. A high-quality set will be ideal since it will last longer while performing better.
