This will be my first winter in Minnesota with my 451. After reading posts from Canadians on this site, I decided to get new tires put on a couple of weeks ago. The Canucks suggested Vredestein Quatrac 5 which are all season but have the Mountain Symbol on them. I'm excited to see how they work. By the way, I'm from Rice Lake, where are you from?
I've just put General Altimax Arctic 12's (185/60 R15) on my rear wheels in preparation for snow. At first, I couldn't find a good winter tire for the front 165/65 R15's. I'm now thinking about buying some Vredstein Quatrac 5 snow-rated, all-season tires for the front. I'm hoping that these will be a bit better than the all-season Conti's the car came with. Has anyone tried them?
