7 Ways to Improve Driver Visibility this Winter

7 Ways to Improve Driver Visibility this Winter

It's nice having all four seasons in Alaska, even if that means our winter is a little longer than most people's.

Tire Rotation One way to extend the lifespan of your tires is to get them rotated every 5,000-6,000 miles. They do not wear out evenly as you drive and every vehicle is a little different. Therefore, rotating the tires on a regular basis as part of your preventative maintenance plan will help spread out the wear and tear, so they last as long as possible. Tread Depth It's also a good idea to check your tire treads every so often. Be sure and check each of the tires because, like we said, they don't wear out evenly when we drive.
