Tip & How-To about Dodge Pickup

Choosing the right tire for winter

When choosing the right tire for winter travel you want to make sure the rubber isnt to stiff. a soft rubber tire will grab the road easier. if you prefer studs than go that route, but if you prefer studless then make sure the tire is siped for winter and snow or ice traction, now i drive a full size dodge with a lift kit and huge tires up here in n. idaho where the snow gets real deep. i dont usually have to much trouble because my tires are softer rubber and thats all i use. cars with less weight should choose an inexpensive tire that will get the job done and will keep you safe but wont break your bank. tire shops will always try to get you to buy the most costly tires when for $500 less you can get practically the same tread design with studs and everything. and generally the cheaper versions will last the same amount of time. so dont be fooled times are tough right now and some folks will do whatever it takes to get your money. ask a lot of questions. tires that are to wide will begin to wear out through the center quicker than the right width for you car or truck
