Wiper Blades

Freezing temperatures cause windshield wipers to freeze to the windshield or become cracked. The first reaction when most people get into their car with their window not clear is to turn on the wipers. Depending on how severe the freeze is it can cause the rubber to be ripped and therefore not do its job correctly.

Even if you take care not to do this the freezing weather can still cause the rubber to harden and crack and will deteriorate a lot faster than normal when used as well as not wiping the windscreen in full.

Tire Pressure

Cold weather can also cause tires to loose pressure, which can cause them to become bald. Always be sure to check the pressure is correct.
