1. ALL SEASON TIRES ARE FINE. REALLY. just be sure to have more than 40% tread.

2. you only need to change your wiper fluid if you were running water. any of the blue stuff should already be rated for -20 deg F. really only canadian’s need to worry about any lower, but then they have block heaters..

3. spend some time in a snow-covered parking lot practicing putting thecar nearly out of control and re-gaining control. it’s only dangerous if you don’t understand how you and the car reacts to the alteration in grip.
