I bought new tires for the Chrysler Town & Country. They’re not all season tires like before, like what we’ve all gotten used to. If you look closely at your all season tires, you’ll notice they’re not rated for snow. I now have all weather. They have the little picture of a snowflake on the tire, designating them suitable as a snow tire. I got them at Mo-Tires here in Lethbridge.
Well this is embarrassing!
But these tiny spare tires are supposed to do up to 80km/h. Wow.
Even last winter when A&C were visiting, two tires went flat. Cheap iron rims. They rusted and continually lost their bead. Matt B., a tire guy I know at Elrich, told me these would probably last 3 or 4 years, especially if only used in winter. He knows his stuff, Not using them during hot weather loosens the bead, moisture gets in, and the metal begins to rust.
So I went to Kia to order rims.
What do you think? I know, I know, they’re a lot of money for just a set of rims. The point is a) I hated those winter beater car iron rims, b) I wanted something nicer to match the summer rims, and c) I hated pumping up my tires every few days.
