Hi all! Winter is fast coming to the Pacific NW - that means "ski season" for the girls.
I'm not worried about snow locally in Seattle (rare for a day or two), but we used to use my inlaws 4 wheel drive Previa to get up I90 to the ski area. Snow is usually close to the pass, about 3" deep usually, with some ice at times.
That van is dying, so we need to use our current tow vehicle ... a two wheel drive Dodge 1 ton van with no limited slip diff. It's all we can do to make it up there in time for their lessons, I don't really want to stop to put on chains so....
Snow tires - the Tire Rack has Winterforce M+S snow tires for $68 a pop (made by Bridgeston/Firestone). They recommend four, should they all be studded or just the drive tires (or do I just buy two). Do I really need studded tires? http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Compar...ll&search=true
I would like to take a trip to Vancouver, maybe the coast. Can I still tow with studded tires?
