Hey all, my family and I are moving out west from NC, and are driving out in winter, not the best idea, but it's what is happening. So we are wondering if we should change the tires on our Dodge Caravan. Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

I used to travel for a living by car across 17 States, so indeed winter tires were a MUST for me. I preferred to use the quality Michelin and Pirelli winter tires which were competent on dry roads but really had bite for those tough drives in the winter storms I ran into. I steered away from the offbrands frankly as many of the larger dealers make more money off of them to encourage you to buy them. I stuck with those mentioned and they served me well. A good Discount Tire location can probably advise you well as that is where I got mine. Vans in particular aren't known for their good traction so you'll need all the help you can get. I assume it isn't all wheel drive. Don't compromise with cheap wanna be's. Get good tires and they will pay dividends.
