Winter road-trips can be an exciting adventure for you and the entire family, but if your ride isn’t prepared, you could be in for more thrills than you bargained for. Whether your route takes you through the snowy mountains or areas with cold temperatures, make sure your vehicle is ready to conquer anything with these simple upgrades the next time you plan a road-trip.
It’s a good idea to invest in a durable set of snow chains that can handle any winter driving condition. Tire chains provide greater traction needed for safe handling, and they’re designed to deliver sure footing through snow and ice. Choose from our extensive selection to wrap your wheels in the burliest protection possible before heading out on any winter road-trip. Other winter driving tips: Accelerate and decelerate slowly to achieve the best traction on the icy roads and avoid skids, and remember that everything—stopping, turning, accelerating—takes longer on snow-covered roads.
A weak battery and freezing temps are a risky combo, so load-test your battery before you embark on your road-trip … especially if your vehicle’s an older model. It’s a good idea to take your road-trip vehicle to a trusted mechanic for a tune-up before your journey. If you need to replace your battery, check out our extensive variety. It doesn’t hurt to have a battery charger on hand as well, in the case that you hear crickets the next time you turn your car key.
If your big rig or pick-up needs some extra traction, these traction weights securely weigh down your rear wheels without damaging your truck bed. With these simple accessories, you can achieve the back-end traction you need to handle the slickest streets and icy weather.
When it’s snowy and cold in the morning, the last thing you want to do is spend lots of time chipping the ice away from your windshield. Keep your windshield shielded whenever your ride’s parked outside with our durable windshield covers and snow shades, which fit most cars, pick-ups, vans and SUVs.
As you’re chugging down the highway and it starts to snow, the last thing you want to worry about is your wiper blades’ effectiveness. Worn-out wiper blades can decrease visibility in the event of rain or snow. Also improve the performance of your vehicle’s windshield washer system with our windshield washer heaters, which heat your wiper fluid for more powerful cleaning.
When the weather outside is frightful, these custom-fit car covers are sure delightful. Keep your ride safe and warm from any winter storm when it’s parked outdoors with these durable car covers. Choose from big-name brands like Coverking and Covercraft to find an outdoor car cover that can withstand rain, snow, ice and sun.

These roof racks and cargo carriers are not only built tough from high-quality materials, but they also provide more leg space and interior comfort for your passengers, which is especially handy during those long commutes. AutoAnything provides a plethora of cargo boxes, cargo baskets and roof rack systems you can use to haul your gear securely and safely through any snowy weather.
While it’s important to have bright beams for better visibility at longer distances, having great fog lights is equally important. These fog lights work with your low-beams to improve your visibility when it’s raining, snowing or sleeting. They emit a wide, low pattern of light that’s designed to shine below the mist and haze, ensuring that other drivers see you on the road.
Whether you’re taking the kids out to build their first snowman or are preparing to tear up the slopes, these custom-fit floor mats and liners keep your floorboards safe from unwanted messes from snow and slush.
