Automotive Tips from Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Riverview: When to Replace Your Wiper Blades

December 8, 2016

There are several important factors that go into how often Riverview drivers should replace their wiper blades. Of course, the more you use your wipers, the faster the blades will wear out – especially if you use them on an icy windshield. Whether it’s a lot of bugs and road grime from FL freeway driving or lots of wet weather – your blades get a work out and start to wear.

But your wiper blades break down even when they aren’t used frequently. They are damaged by sunlight and temperature changes as well. The rubber in the blades can dry out and crack and eventually fall apart. Check your wipers: If they’re not doing their important job, have them replaced at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Riverview in Riverview.

Talk to your Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Riverview service advisor about how you drive - we can counsel you on the optimal blades for your needs.
