The team at Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission wants your car to be ready for both spring and summer, and that all starts with a little spring cleaning.  Here a few areas that need attention after winter:  Tires: Winter can affect the air in your tires, causing them both to expand and contract, which will, in turn, change the air pressure.
