MANAGE THE ARRIVAL OF COLD WEATHER
The winter tyre season starts. Advice to face the Autumn, starting with the right tyre.
Replace summer tyres with Pirelli winter tyres to efficiently control the road and drive in complete safety.
Add antifreeze to the vehicle's cooling system (mixture of 50% water and 50% antifreeze).
Check the efficiency of the braking system so that it will always be ready to work.
Check the windscreen washer fluid and, if necessary, add antifreeze. It is crucial, at all times, to be able to clean the windscreen from the potential of mud sprayed by the cars ahead.
Checking the lights is crucial: during the winter there could be visibility problems that must not catch you unprepared.
It is advisable to use specific winter oil to make it easier to start the engine on cold days. It is recommended to change the oil before the winter's cold days arrive, if a thicker oil was used during the summer.
Antifreeze compounds and salt contribute to make the roads safer in winter, but they can corrode parts of the vehicle and compromise their integrity. In order to ensure optimum visibility, it is important to keep the windscreen and windows clean and to make sure that the windscreen washer fluid contains antifreeze.
