"I want to buy snow tires for my car"

It's a rear-wheel drive sedan, and I have trouble getting up hills, especially when I start from a dead stop. Love the car, but need better traction!

Re: I want to buy snow tires for my car

Hi timfou,

I had the same problem when I got my rear-wheel drive sedan. After one winter with all season tires, I bought a set of Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 winter tires. Now, every winter from around the end of November to the end of March I have these tires on my car instead of my All Season tires.

I found that the site TireRack was the easiest place to price shop and compare features, tire ratings and reviews. I also bought a second set of rims to mount the snow tires on. TireRack made it easy to pick a local auto repair shop to ship the tires and rims to, so they could mount and balance them and then install them on my car.

All in all, they did a great job getting me the product information that I wanted as well as coordinating the shipping with my local mechanic. Plus, since I was shopping online, I felt that I was able to research and get the best price for the snow tires. Check them out, if you are so inclined.

"I want to know if my roof will collapse from the snow and ice" +
details: With all this heavy snow accumulating, ice dams forming, I am worried about my roof collapsing. I heard of roofs of schools and office buldings falling in and injuring people inside. The pitch of my roof is not very steep, and I have a flat area over my porch area. Is there some inspection to know if my roof will not cave in, or if the roof can hold the weight of snow and ice.
