Snow tires are better for Winter But, Change them back out for Spring or they will not last very long on Regular Asphalt. They are made from a Softer Rubber than all Season Tires. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Winter driving tips.


WINTER TIRES
As a mechanic and a shop owner I get to try out various types of vehicles during test drives. So we get to try out different types of tires too. We learn what works well and what doesn't.
Don't kid yourself, all season tires don't come close to a quality winter tire on ice and snow. And when you add studs to a winter tire it makes them incredibly good. I hope they allow studded tires where you drive.
All season tires work well when they can contact the road surface directly, but when isolated from the road by ice and snow they just don't work. The compound of the tire is generally harder to resist summer heat that wears tires out and with the colder temperatures they just get stiffer.
The winter tire compound is a little softer which allows a better contact patch with whatever is under it and the larger tread gaps pinch the snow to gain traction.
Another big misconception with tires is putting them on the drive wheels only.
OK, why not you ask? Well lets start with one of the most common vehicles on the road today, a family sedan, front wheel drive.
On these cars your engine and transmission is front mounted, so a good part of the weight is front biased. So that puts lots of weight on your front wheels. Weight =traction, right? So you put your winter tires on the front and your already used all seasons on the back.
Imagine now cruising down the freeway in 4 inches of fresh snow, "man these winter tires are awesome !" But you need to brake in a hurry for a deer coming out. Well those fresh winters do their job OK but the lightweight back end of your car hasn't the traction to handle the maneuver, the back end is sliding around sideways...hang on to it!!!
Well you get the picture now. You need all 4.

DONT SPIN YOUR TIRES

How many times do you see it each slippery day? You know, the drivers wheels howling for mercy as they attempt to accelerate.
Many vehicles today are equipped with traction control, there is a good reason for this accessory to your vehicle. If you can accelerate without spinning you will get moving faster than someone who is, and under more control too. A spinning tire will often create a hot spot under itself, melt the ice or snow and make it even more slippery. You even run the risk of getting yourself stuck in the rut you create.
A spinning tire also will go sideways easier, as it loses traction it also loses some direction.
Granpa said to me sometimes...slow down and go faster ...I now have seen the truth in it.

What is the proper tire for the 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo


Trick question.....no fair!!!!!!

Seriously, it depends on your application. I had a 1999 and now drive a 2001......

The best advice will be from a good tire store... I can only offer you what I know based on experience.

A good "All Season" M/S (mud and snow) tire rated "Traction A" is OK for "all season" driving UNLESS you are facing allot of mud and snow!

If so, you need "off road" or "snow" tires.... if you are looking at lots of ice on the road, you need to have them "studded". You will have to change this type of tire after the winter season is over as required by law. Also, these tires make allot of "road noise" and are unsuitable for things like commuting down the freeway.

You will get the best advice from your local tire dealer because even though we can give you generic answers like those I just provided, your local tire dealer can understand much better exactly what you want to use your Jeep for in your particular neighborhood, and give you exactly what you need.

I do not have winter tires and I am wondering what is the best winter tire for 525XI. I have Continental all season and the winter performance terrible.


Of coarse,All Season Tires, are not for snow

You need a couple of new wheels, and dedicate them to
2 snows, of your choice.

Look at tire rack.com, just for the tire tests,
then look locally for treads you like

There are better tires than continental

When you need 4 new tires look at Cooper

Looking to replace all season tires, what are my best options when I live in the mountains? occassional big dumps of snow but with global warming not cold enough to warrant snow tires. most of my driving...


If you have too much money, I will take some off your hands. All season tires are all season tires. If you want snow tires get a new set of rims then keep snow tires in your garage for the winter and all season tires for the rest of the year. If you cant drive in the snow cant help you with that.

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.

Can we use snow tires on it and if so what kind and size. for a 2007 mercury mountineer


Hello. Yes, snow tires will give you the best possible traction in winter driving conditions, better that all season. The size tire depends upon the size of your rim so go to a tire store and shop around. They will tell you what size your vehicle requires. As far as kind goes, I prefer Michelin but any brand name snow tire will work fine.
Kindly rate my answer as useful. Thank you.

On what tires do you put chains for an all-wheel


I would say the front , IF I was putting chains on. Not that I EVER would , I live in Canada , and we get lots of snow here. I have NEVER seen a car with chains on. (not even those useless cable chains) Winter tires , or Good all seasons are a far better solution.
