I know that is a strong label, but . . . I just installed all season “touring” tires on a 12 Liberty. From what I read, the snow performance difference between all season and all terrain tires was negligible, so I opted for better rain and dry performance, and a quieter ride.
We get a couple of major storms a season, but the rest of the time we might max out at four inches. Any guidance, besides, “Stay off the roads” and “drop the air pressure”?
I already drive like there is an eggshell under the accelerator in bad weather. The embarrassment of spinning out in a 4WD because I drove stupid is too much to contemplate.
And, yes, I know I had no rational justification for the Jeep. A Camry with snow tires would perform just as well in this region.
But the heart wants what it wants . . .
