Does Your Cruze Need Michelin Snow Tires, Bridgestone Snow Tires or Firestone Snow Tires?

Thursday, October 13, 2011 by Steve Huffman
Chevrolet's all-new Cruze has proven to be a popular choice among U.S. drivers. Many discerning drivers no doubt opted for this model due to its outstanding fuel economy. Part of that fuel economy was achieved by the O.E. all-season tires with which they were equipped. Unfortunately, these tires don't always perform so well in the winter. However, there are some excellent winter tire options available that wil get the Cruze safely through Mother Nature's coldest months.

The Blizzaks are one of our best sellers, and the WS70 is the winter / snow tire choice for my personal car. They offer superior traction in snow and on ice. They are, however, a little soft on dry pavement. For this reason, we would also suggest the Michelin X-Ice Xi2. They have excellent winter traction as well, but behave more like your all-season tires on dry pavement. The Firestone Winterforce is a great entry-level winter / snow tire that is also studdable. And when you're looking at Firestone tire prices, the Winterforce is an excellent choice for the budget-minded consumer.

You may also want to consider snow wheels to go along with your new Chevy tires to create a Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package. Packages come pre-assembled and ready to bolt on. This saves you time and money and gives you the freedom to easily change between summer and winter packages.
