Winter tire wheels using 4WD


We don’t need to tell you how harsh Sioux City Winters can be. And it can be dangerous to be broken down along the road. But if it happens, you need to be prepared. That’s why it’s important to have a winter car safety kit stowed in your vehicle. The best car emergency kit includes an emergency tool kit for your car and several other items. Our service department wants to help you keep safe this Winter, so let’s take a closer look at why you need a Winter emergency car kit and what you should put in it. 

Why You Need a Winter Emergency Car Kit

It’s not hard to find yourself stranded on a back Brookings road during the Winter. These roads can easily become snowed and iced over during a blizzard, making it hard for tow vehicles to reach you. And, if you find yourself in an area where you don’t have cell service, it can be a long time before help arrives. A Winter car safety kit can help you stay safe, whereas an emergency tool kit for a car can potentially get you back on the road.
