It's time to buy my 4 door some new tires. Which have you used and think are the best choices by brand?
We are very happy with out YOKOHAMAs on our 2005, rain, shine, snow or whatever the road throws at us. Wear to this point has been excellent. They have proven themselves to be great SNOW tires with our last storm as well. My girlfriend LOVES how her RAV4 handles in adverse conditions!
YK-HTX, gotten through Discount Tire. I HEAR us RAV4ers get a....pardon the pun....discount there as they are one of our sponsors but I am not certain how that works. Someone else that knows may chime in.....
This is our ski car. We go EVERYWHERE in the Winter with it. I have a Tacoma 4WD as well and we still take the 2005 on our ski trips. My girlfriend is from Michigan so is used to driving in adverse Snowy conditions and she LOVES this car. And she really likes how these tires handle in the Snow. During our last storm, there were 45 mph winds and she had to break through some 2+ foot drifts to get out of our neighborhood. She called me giggling about how well the car did! They are "Mud and Snow" rated. That way we don't have to change tires out at the change of seasons. My Tacoma has all-seasons tires as well. Yes, being a native Coloradoan, I am used to driving in Snow, but that doesn't matter; what does is the traction the vehicle has and RAV4's are great Winter cars. If you want the best "bad-ass" Winter tire, Google Hakkapeliitta 8: studded tires from Norway, I believe. They have been discussed on this forum so a search may also get you some good information.
