  • Check your tires and make sure your chains fit before the first winter storm and check tire pressure during cold weather. Remember, tire shops and mechanics are busiest just before and during winter storms.
  • Get a vehicle winter maintenance check-up. Don’t wait to check your battery, belts, hoses, radiator, lights, brakes, heater/defroster and wipers.
  • Keep your fuel tank full — don’t let it fall below half a tank on winter trips.
  • Program your radio for traffic reports and emergency messages (for WSDOT radio: 530 and 1610 AM).
