Sandals not run in the snow. But what to bring: wheel Assembly or just the tires? The studs or “Velcro”? When to change?
If you take just the tires, you save on buying discs, but work on the tire will cost more. It’s not just unscrewed one and put another wheel need to ressortiront, to remove from the rim summer tires, mount the winter, to pump, balance and only after that to install on the car. In addition, the mounting-Dismounting twice a year does not enhance the bead of the tire, because they provide the tightness of the fit to the rim, and they determine how well the tire will hold the pressure. Therefore, the presence of winter and summer sets of tires on the rims looks better, though more expensive. In favor of this decision said another factor: for winter wheels you can take the disks of smaller diameter and install them on the tires with a high profile for more comfort, informs Rus.Media.
When choosing the actual tires better and easier to navigate on the recommendations of the automaker. For example, at Nissan dealerships select tire for all parameters according to the requirements of the manufacturer for each model. The client only needs to decide whether to get studded or “Velcro”.

As a rule, the need for replacement occurs after five years of use. And the other battery is seven years. But to check its capacity before winter – is never superfluous.

After the active summer season it is advisable to check the condition of the pads. In the summer and higher speed, and braking harder, more wear pads respectively. And ahead of winter: you must be confident in the brakes.
The obvious thing that every car owner thinks: all the liquid poured into the machine, should not only be sufficient, but should retain the physico-chemical properties. For example, the moisture content of brake fluid must not exceed 3.5%, otherwise it can form in the tube system of the steam or, conversely, to fall in the form of ice crystals, paralyzing its work. With an excess of water in the antifreeze it also can freeze and break the engine block or the radiator cooling.
