Winter Seasonal Maintenance Items to Consider

The winter season can significantly alter the performance of your vehicle. Before you hit the road in freezing weather, it's important to understand some basic technical parameters of tires.

The gauge pressure in tires might drop below recommended levels when it gets cold outside. Most vehicles should roll on tires that are inflated to at least 32 PSI. If the outdoor temperature drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the gauge pressure might fall by a few psi. According to our Jaguar service experts, it's a good idea to have a reliable air compressor to inflate the tires to the appropriate levels before you hit the road.

The tread is another important factor in the performance of automotive tires. If the tread depth is 2/32 of an inch, then it's time for some new tires. You should purchase winter or all-season tires that are optimized to overcome some of the challenges of cold temperatures and inclement weather.
