    Great answer jetski224! Snow tires are superior for snow traction and for cold weather traction. All season tires lose their grip when the temp drops. If you live where the temperature drops under 20 degrees (F) you'll appreciate the cold weather and snow gripping traction of snow tires.

Well, this web site asks me to give people advice, so here goes. I was born and raised in the north and still live up near Wisconsin, so we get a lot of snow, EH. Snow tires for those of us living in the great north are a good investment. They create superior traction in the snow and that's what you need.

The reason you don't run them in the summer time is because of the tread design. The design is made to fill with snow, so they run smoother. Running them on dry pavement with wear them out prematurely and cause a rough ride.

Buy them at a tire store near you where you can get them changed over when summer time comes.

Im from texas, and im taking a trip to minnesota and have been told to winterize my truck 1996 ford f-350 with a 460 engine, what does this entail


Make sure the antifreeze is a 50:50 mix for max freeze protection. The engine oil should be multi-viscosity (5w-30 or 10w-30). Fit all-season radial tires if you don't have them already. Carry a set of tire chains so that you can get around if the snow flies. Make sure your heater and defroster work well. That fairly well covers the essentials, but you will likely discover a few extras like a snow/ice scraper for the windows. Bring a warm coat and hat if you have them. Some folks place rocks or sand in the bed to get better rear end traction, but don't make the trip with them. Sand is also handy if you are stuck on ice. Good luck!

What all-season tire would you reccommend for a 2002 Ford F150 2 wheel drive truck? Must go through deep Pa winter snow storms


Don't waste your money on all season tires if you are going to be wading through deep snow. Get a good aggresive mud and snow tread for winter driving. I've had good luck with Goodyear's in Eastern Canadian winters. Hope this helps.

Snow problems


No.

Snow tires will help out a lot due to the fact that they are designed to make contact with the road rather than riding on top of the snow.

2005 ford focus, is there a special location that they put the lug nut key?


The lug wrench is
located in a bag next to the spare
tire (3–door and 5–door models) or
on top of the spare tire (sedan and
wagon models). and the key was in this bag.
but they dont always get put back.
im sure you have checked your glove box
if you cant find it any tire repair shop can remove the lock and replace it with a standard one.
good luck
