I had a 2014 Cruze eco in Indy and granted the winter I had the car the weather wasn't too bad but I never needed snow tires. I find If the weather is really bad I just stay home seems to work best for me. I realize not everyone has that luxury.I have a 2012 Cruze Eco and i live in WV so winter can be rough, was wondering if anybody has any suggestions for winter tires? They are 215/55R17. Thanks
And they just came out with the Arctic 12s, which are a newer Hakkapeliitta design. But even the non-12 Arctics are fantastic tires for the price. I had them on the Cav and they were beasts. My brother has them on his Buick and they work great there.Best snow tire available is Nokian Hakapelita. But that's way overkill for your neck of the woods.
Michelin Xice is second best. But that too is overkill for your conditions.
Suggest you look at General Altimax Arctic. It is a several generations old Hakapelita design. But it's still awesome. It's also a smoking good price.
We have a solid selection of Winter tires in 215/55R-17 size available. Here is a link to them on our web site:I have a 2012 Cruze Eco and i live in WV so winter can be rough, was wondering if anybody has any suggestions for winter tires? They are 215/55R17. Thanks
This is the only all-weather tire I know of.So I have been looking at a good all season tire that also does good in winter. I have been looking at Goodyear Triple Tread. Seeing how when GY runs out they sell this tire for winter I guess I found my answer. Is there any tire that is equal to the triple tread, good dry/wet performance, and good in the snow. Noise is less of an issue as I normally have the radio going. Also, is there a good place to buy these tires at discount prices? Locally they are up to 150 dollars each.
This. I remember an article comparing some Michelin tire to the Conti DWS on the track. The DWS looked so hacked up and sawtoothed after, and the Michelin was worn but still even.Honestly, Continental DWS's aren't bad, either.
But they're still nothing compared to a straight winter tire. Tread design can be built into an all-season, but the rubber compound plays a big part too, and that rubber does not like warm weather.
