No, but you'll have to stay in 1st or 2nd gear the whole time!jfrano said:Regarding the VTM-4 switch. I understand it stays engage up til 18mph. When I exceed that speed and then drop below 18, will it automatically come back on? Is there a problem driving like the above in bad weather...15-20-10-25-10?
You're absolutely correct. There is no substitute for winter tires. I wanted a high quality tire that is respectable in winter for this year. The Cross Terrains are a HUGE improvement. Next winter, I'll be purchasing the 4X4 Alpins with steel rims.Commuter said:As good as the CTs are, they are no substitute for real winter tires especially when there is ice.
I'd go with Michelin 4X4 Alpins or Goodyear Wrangler Ultragrips. Bridgestone may have a 4X4 version of their Blizzaks. Nonetheless, get real winter tires for the ultimate safety during the winter. It's the ice that I worry more about than the snow.
