Have not had a chance here in Ohio to drive through heavy snow, my tires seem to spin even with a light coating of snow, and I have to put it in 4 wheel drive just to get up a slight slope . I'll have to check, if I go to a narrower tire, will I need to buy new rims?
Well, for reasons I won't get into, I had to sell my 2003 2500 D/A and 2007 5'er. So, I bought a 2008 F-150(9300lb. tow rating) with the hope of buying a travel trailer within the next couple of years to get back into camping. My question is for you F-150 owners that live in the northern climates and have 275/55/20 size tires on your truck. My truck came with Yokohoma Geolander tires in the above size. New tires, but I have never owned a truck with such terrible traction in the snow. Somebody said that the wider the tire, the worse the traction is? I'm thinking of switching over to Michelins to improve traction. Am I correct in my thinking, or is this just something I have to put up with because of the size of tire? This is my first F-150. I have had Chevrolets and GMC's prior and never had these types of problems in the snow.
Heading down to Disneys Fort Wilderness CG in a few months. I know that they rent golf carts but I thought I read somewhere awhile ago that there is an off site company that rents golf carts out to people camping at the Fort and delivers it to the campground. Anyone know if this is true? has anyone used one of these companies?
