View Full Version : winter tires question
stupid question but... is 235/r17/45 (snow tire) better in snow then 205/x/x ? or it's the other way around ? I'm guessing the wider the tire the better? :huh?:

the exact opposite actually.
the thinner tire digs thru the snow and give the car traction
wouldnt wider tire get better grip ?

a narrow tire will "cut" through the snow... where the wider tire will tend to "float" on top of the snow.
