I was going to purchase a Dodge Charger SXT, however, because it is rear-wheel drive and I just found out that they don't have snow tires to fit car around here, I decided not to buy. I live in upstate ny and we have bad winter weather. How good is rear wheel drive (I have front wheel drive now)
I am a delivery driver and the last few years have had trouble skidding in bad weather. What type of tires would you recommend? Should I get snow tires for the winter? If so, all 4 or just front or just back? Is it ok to use those tires year round or would I have to change them in warmer weather?
Can you safely remove the studs from studded snow tires and then drive on them without compromising your safety?
I have a 2008 Chevy Colorado pickup. The tires have a little over 30,000 miles and I was told I could not have the front end aligned because the tires were not good.
