New Snow tire

I see Tirerack has a new Pirelli snow and ice tire for you guys in the bad winter places. $333.00 a tire. It has the mountain/snowflake symbol on it.

Re: New Snow tire

Right on! I got a full set mounted on the new OZ 20" rims delivered in July to beat the fall rush. Full width 295/45. Haven't installed them yet, and not really anxious to put on snows, but TireRack guarantees the fit. Now we're ready for ski country, however one thing, they are not run-flat and even with the full size spare that comes with the tow package the spare will not fit over the front calipers, so order an inflation kit. Will send up some pics when they get mounted on the Jeep......in October.

Re: New Snow tire

No real need to order an inflation kit, just put the spare on the rear and move the rear to the front that's flat.

I bought a car a while back that had used some of that flat fix crap and it took over an hour to completely clean the rim before we correctly repaired the tire. That goop will most likely ruin the TPS sensor too.

Re: New Snow tire

You should never put a temp tire on the front of a vehicle. If it goes bad you could loose control.

I'm curious to know how the traction is on dry pavement.
