What do I need Snow Tires For??
By Island Living from British Columbia - Dodge Ram 2500 Van - All-Season
First Set of Full Snow Tires I've put on any vehicle I've owned. Always have bought Michelin LTXs for my trucks and vans and never have been disappointed. I've always liked the Mud & Snow all season tires in winter thinking that the full winter tire would not provide a noticeable difference in grip and braking. I thought I would treat myself to a full winter rated tire on our newer ProMaster Van . After the first snowfall this week I took them out to see how they would do. What a difference ! Super grippy stopping on snow and ice amazing. With the front wheel drive on the ProMaster and these LTX Winter Load E rated tires it feels like a 4 WD
"LONG HAUL" UPDATE
By old timer from Ontario - Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD - All-Season
OK, here we are end December 2016, & I've had enough serious snow/slush/slippery conditions here in SW & SE Ontario Canada to deal with that I can definitely claim the "Winter" LTX is far superior to the "All Season" LTX this time of year in all respects, no contest...the Winter LX may appear similar to the A/S LTX, but it's not the same tire at all...I'm sure it helps that I have some 2,500 lbs sitting on each front wheel, but rear wheelspin from stop is noticeably less...in 4wd it's a tank, and it stops on demand, As a bonus, the soft Winter compound rides much better than the harder A/S compound...very VERY satisfied with these tires...
