How to Prep Your Car for Colorado Spring Adventures | EAS Tire & Auto

As the snow melts and the temperatures rise, Colorado bursts into vibrant life, beckoning adventurers to explore its breathtaking landscapes. Whether you're planning a scenic drive through the mountains or embarking on an outdoor adventure, ensuring your car is ready for the journey is the key.

1. Check Your Tires

Before heading out on your Colorado spring escapade:

  • Take a moment to inspect your tires.
  • Ensure they are properly inflated and have adequate tread depth to provide optimal traction on both dry roads and lingering patches of snow or ice.
  • Consider switching to all-weather or summer tires for improved performance in warmer conditions or all-terrain tires if you plan to go on the offroad trails.
  • Remember to inspect your spare tire as well.

2. Test Your Brakes

As you navigate Colorado's winding mountain roads and steep inclines, reliable brakes are crucial for your safety and that of others on the road. Before setting out, test your brakes to ensure they are responsive and free from signs of wear or deterioration. If you notice any unusual noises or vibrations when braking, have your brake system inspected by an EAS Tire & Auto qualified mechanic to address any potential issues.

3. Check Fluid Levels

Proper fluid levels are essential for keeping your car's engine running smoothly, especially during long drives or in high-altitude environments. Check the levels of engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, and windshield washer fluid and top up as needed. Consider having your oil and filter changed if you're due for routine maintenance, as clean oil is important for engine performance and longevity.

4. Inspect Your Lights

Visibility is paramount when navigating Colorado's diverse terrain, from bustling city streets to remote mountain passes. Take a moment to inspect all exterior lights on your vehicle, including headlights, taillights, turn signals, and brake lights. Replace any burnt-out bulbs or damaged lenses to ensure maximum visibility and compliance with state regulations.

5. Pack Emergency Essentials

While Colorado's spring weather can be unpredictable, being prepared for the unexpected can help you navigate any challenges that may arise on your journey. Pack a roadside emergency kit containing essentials such as jumper cables, a flashlight, blankets, water, non-perishable snacks, and a first aid kit.
