My Daughters 2003 ZTW now has 6000 Ks on it and so far no problems. Had a
couple of inches of snow last night. I took it out for a test this
morning(Perilli P6's.) It had no problem with traction at all. In fact it
was better my car :-))
I'll keep you informed. I live in Ontario.
That's good to know Gerry.
My wagon is due for replacement rubber. I know I don't want Goodyear
Integrity tires again. I have heard plenty of praise for the Goodyear
Regatta 2, and the Michelin X One is also on my short list. Anybody got
input on those? I'm in Manitoba, so good all-season tires are a must.
I would really suggest using four winter tires on separate rims. For your
conditions a good all-round one such as Alpins would be excellent. I use
Canadian Tire Icetrac with good results, but I live in Eastern Ontario which
has a lot more ice and snow.
Well that's just it... We really don't get as much snow, here on the
prairies, as others commonly believe. We're more about cold temperatures
than deep snow. Shelling out for a second set of tires and rims makes little
sense - especially since I'm not committed to keeping my Focus, long-term.
I'm convinced, good all-season tires are my better choice.
Thanks for the response Dave.
