The chill of winter will be here sooner than we know it.
Winterizing your corvette for the upcoming colder months is a full proof way of ensuring it will run properly when you’re ready to go in the spring.
When storing a corvette for the winter Cody recommends unhooking the negative battery cable or installing a battery tender to your car. GM allows 28 days without charging your battery before it becomes completely discharged. He also recommends tires to be at 35-40 PSI before storing to prevent flat spotting on the tires. If you are not storing your corvette in a climate controlled shop or building Cody recommends to have the antifreeze checked to hold up to a minimum temperature of -30 degrees.
He also recommends that when driving in fall seasons before winterization to change the tire pressures to be between 32-35 PSI due to drastic temperature changes. If driving a corvette with Goodyear tires it is not recommended driving in temperatures below 40 degrees, as well as with Michelin tires on your corvette the recommendation when driving in the fall months is temperatures under 30 degrees.
