Sorry, I meant the snow tires were the same size; not sure about the rim width. Sibbo -- I live next to a ski resort and get a LOT of snow, so would have been much happier with a narrow snow tire. Unfortunately, the RAV came with 235 Nankook snows. I'll do my best to wear them out so they can be replaced with some good Haaks or an equivalent tire.philrav4 said:
Actually from personal experience on other vehicles here in northern Vermont I can tell you it makes quite a bit of difference. No difference on ice or slush, but when driving over powder wide tires ride on top and you just don't get much grip, while narrow tires cut down to the ground and let you get home.sibbo said:Hey boondox, snow tires are still ight years ahead of all seasons regardless of width. Down the road it would be interesting for you to update us as to how much difference you notice if you go with narrower tires.
