RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE AUTUMN

MANAGE THE ARRIVAL OF COLD WEATHER

The winter tyre season starts. Advice to face the Autumn, starting with the right tyre.

1- THE TYRES BEFORE ALL ELSE

Replace summer tyres with Pirelli winter tyres to efficiently control the road and drive in complete safety.

2 - ENGINE PROTECTION

Add antifreeze to the vehicle's cooling system (mixture of 50% water and 50% antifreeze).

3 - MAXIMUM ATTENTION TO SAFETY

Check the efficiency of the braking system so that it will always be ready to work.

4 - THINK ABOUT VISIBILITY

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.

5 - THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING SEEN

Checking the lights is crucial: during the winter there could be visibility problems that must not catch you unprepared.

6 - STARTING THE ENGINE IN COLD WEATHER

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.

7 - KEEP THE VEHICLE CLEAN

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.
