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.

My saturn does not go to good in the snow , it slides all I over the place I just landesd in a ditch I bought new tires but that has not solved the problem I like the vue but not in the snow.


It is good practice even for a vehicle with AWD to use snow tires in the winter. My wifes car is AWD and does not perform well even with the recommended all season tires on it. AWD is often confused or thought to be as good as 4 wheel drive, that is definitely not the case. My only recommendation would be to invest in a good set of snows like Bridgestone Blizzaks or equivalent....and even then, drive carefully and cautiously. Be safe

Tip

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.

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

No real problems, just shopping for the best tires for Wisconsin winters. This is my second Chevy Lumina, the first was a 96, which was hit by a drunk driver while parked, and destroyed...nobody...


Make sure you get snow tires not all seasons. Get a tire with a "Mud and Snow" tread design. It may also be called M&S. If you experience a lot of icy conditions, give serious thought to getting them studded. Todays new tread designs give you the traction you will need to wade through snow but not the road noise that there used to be. Look for deep lugs with wide gaps between them to move snow out of the tire track. That way you will be the guy driving home while the other guy's are waiting to get towed out. Hope this helps.

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 fuel is best for my Chev Malibu, 2003. I live


Standard 87 octane is all that car requires. You will gain no benefit from using mid or top grade fuel.

Most passenger car tires are run between 32 and 35 psi, regardless of season. You can look at the side of the tire to find what the max cold psi pressure is. You will normally find that it is 35psi.

As for summer/winter tires. If the wobble only happens when the snow tires are installed, and not with the summer tires, that obviously eliminates the car as being the problem. Do you have your summer and winter tires mounted on different sets of wheels, or do you swap the tires every season on the same wheels?

If they are on different sets of wheels, then the winter tires are out of balance, have some sort of damage to the carcass of the tires, or you have a bent wheel. If you are using the same wheels and swapping the tires every season, then you need to have your winter tires balanced and see if it solves the problem.

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.

How does 4 wheel drive work?


Hi there , in order for your 4 wheel to work you have to drive a couple feet for everything to lock. If you are already stuck and you put it into 4 wheel, it won't engage. hope this helps you out
