In and Out Tires will come to the rescue if your car suffers from the cold weather.

Brace yourself – some truly cold weather has arrived in Millsboro and it’s going to stick around for at least a few days. Forecasters indicate that overnight temperatures will hover around freezing and, on some nights, will drop into the 20s while most daytime temperatures will be in the 40s or 50s.

The drastic change in temperature is hard on people. But the cold is also hard on cars and trucks. So beware of possible car trouble ahead.

Assuming your car starts – cold weather is infamous for killing batteries – one of the first places you may notice a problem is with your tires.

“As the air in your tires gets colder, it contracts and has less pressure. Tires correspondingly become underinflated,” says. “Check your tire pressure more often than you normally would. The Car Care Council recommends doing so once a week. You might think a little deflation provides better traction, but tire experts caution against running tires below manufacturers’ recommended pressure, as that can cause uneven or unsafe tread wear. Getting winter tires is always a good idea in states with inclement weather.”

Other areas you might find problems, according to – thick oil, ice in the fuel line, antifrieeze that doesn’t work, and frozen windshields and belts. advises: “It may be a bit late to hand out this advice this year, but for future reference, the Car Care Council recommends taking your car or truck in for an inspection before winter hits so you can stave off the above problems ahead of time. ‘Vehicles need extra attention when temperatures drop below zero,’ executive director Rich White points out. ‘Whether consumers perform an inspection and required maintenance themselves or go to a repair shop, it’s a small yet important investment to avoid the aggravation and unexpected and potentially dangerous cost of a breakdown in freezing weather.’”
