Sure don't have to worry about this for a while, but thought I'd ask while
I'm thinking of it.
Son has a 2005 Accord, 6 cyl., four door sedan.
He has always been complaining about how poorly it climbs most any kind of
hill when there is snow on it, even a little.
Compares it to his last car, which was a Mercury Sable sedan, and just great
in this regard.
Uses low(er) gears, but this doesn't seem to help much.
a. Is this inability a function of the car design, or most likely just the
original tires that came with the car ?
b. If, this winter, he puts on snow tires, or something better than the
"all-weather" compromise that is now on, and that they love to sell for
every possible condition, can he get away with just the two front tires ?
Or, would this cause fish-tailing or other control type problems ?
c. Any winter tire recommendations ?
The true old fashioned heavy threaded Snow tires ?
