#1

How much weight should I put in my trunk for winter driving in Colorado?


#2

Other than the fact this is a terrible vehicle for snow just call the service department at your dealer . Surely someone there has experience with this problem.


#3

If you do add weight it needs to be above or slightly in front of the rear wheels.


#4

If you are in Colorado, and drive a Miata, I’d suggest buying 4 winter tires on steel wheels and installing them for the entire winter. Put the nice alloy wheels and tire back on i the spring. The car will perform WAY better than just tossing some weight in the trunk. In fact, they will transform a scary winter car into a secure one.

Check tirerack.com for wheel-and-tire packages. Be sure and search for “winter” tires, they are specifically made for ice and snow.
