How much do All Terrain tires affect fuel economy? Help me choose all-weather v.s. all-terrain
I recently got a AWD SUV, and live in Toronto proper. 2007 Toyota Rav4 Base V6 only 152,000km (sob...).
Roads are cleared quickly and frequently. Around these parts. The only challenge is that my parking spot is off a lane way. So these lane ways seem to be plowed LAST.
For that reason... I've decided on getting a set of ALL WEATHER TIRES!
(In-case some people are mistaken... These are different from all-seasons in that they are good enough to have the snow flake symbol for severe winter service, but are designed to be safely driven in the summer time). Both of the selections I narrowed down have the mountain snow flake. They're also both designed to be driven during all 4 seasons.
There are two choices for my vehicle model.
Nokian Nordman WR SUV. This is an ALL-Weather tire.
