Re: 2012 Laredo looking for a tire upgrade
Remember AT's are not winter tires. And all seasons are really no seasons. For the winter get a set of quality winter tires from Nokia, Vredstein, Bridgestone or Michelin. Another advantage winter tires have is when temps fall below 40 degrees the tread compounds provide better traction on snow, ice, in the wet and dry then AT, MTS and no seasons. Go with a 70 series or narrower for a winter tire.
My preference in winter tires is Michelin followed by Nokia and Vredstein. The distributor for Vredstein is/used to located in CT.
Consider upgrading to a 18" wheel and tire for the rest of the year.
a quality winter tire will offer superior performance in snow, ice and wet conditions when compared to a AT or MT tire.
