New Winter Tires



Finally replaced the old smooth Cooper Discoverer tires with some new Kelly Wintermarks. What a huge difference it makes. Braking and traction are so much better. Theres a little tire whine when driving on hard surfaces but not objectionable. I went from a P235-70R15 to a P235-75 to gain a little ground clearance.

Re: New Winter Tires

Looks good. I guess those outer lugs are for digging in on mud and snow, and the center pattern is for hard road? I've tried to educate myself on tire size and tread matters... Still learning.

Re: New Winter Tires

It was cold, but its a lot colder today at -35 this morning. Tire sizes are metric of course. The key number here is the "75" in P235-75Rx15. That means the sidewall is 75% of 235 centimetres. As compared to what I had before being 70% of 235 centimetres. I now have more sidewall and less tread than I had before with the 70 series tires. I think that will be an advantage in my type of driving but only time will tell.
