Have not had any problems with the MKC in snow; I kept the all-weather tires on last winter and survived. Still, might consider snow tires this year just to be "safe"; we'll see. Hard to justify snow tires when you survived this past winter on the standard tires!Hi
How does your MKC Drive in the Snow?
From the Information Display Select Driver Assist then Select Intelligent AWD and you should see the graphic of the drive. I will verify later."You can pull up what the AWD system is doing if you have the option in it,"
How do you do that?
Yup thats the procedure.From the Information Display Select Driver Assist then Select Intelligent AWD and you should see the graphic of the drive. I will verify later.
Also consider winter tires if you are in a more urban location for most of your driving. They work in a few inches of snow but have improved ice, wet and dry traction over all seasons. Go with snow tires if you are driving on snow and ice regularly. The Michelin Alpines are excellent winter tires, did 7 years in a FWD car with them in NH, no problem with under 3" snow. Ambient Air Temp's also has to be below 45 degrees F regularly before winter or snow tires are really worth the money too. Yes snow and winter tires will work but they will be really soft and wear quicker.Hi
Thank You All for Your Advice. I live in New York. So we could get Between 2 and 8 inches normally.
WHAT HE SAID! BELOW ~40-45 DEGREES, ESP ON A WET ROAD, YOU'D BE SHOCKED IF YOU SAW THE INCREASED STOPPING DISTANCES AND LOSS OF LAT G ABILITIES ON A SET OF ALL SEASON TIRES. All season tire means "does nothing well" When Pirelli's are toast, I intend to put some proper summer tires on vehicle such as Sumitomo HTRZ3's. Fabulous tire for any money and will easily blow the Pirelli's out of the water. I've had them on 3 cars. Another favorite are General AS03's. Few compromises here for an UHP tire. You don't have to pay Michelin, Bridgestone or Goodyear's advertising bills to get top shelf performance these days. I've had many tires on the track..........unless you are racing against the clock , saving .1 sec/lap isn't worth double the cost. Finally all these tires that last a ridiculous 60-80K miles mean you spend 10-20K extra time on worn down tires with greatly diminished wet performance...the most important performance for a street driver.I run snow tires on my factory wheels and my Michelins on a set of chrome mags in the summer. People always worry about getting stuck in the snow, but stopping and handling are much greater concerns. If you're stuck you can get pulled out. If you can't stop or turn, it could lead to a accident and possible injuries.
One other aspect people never consider. If you buy dedicated snow tires for winter use, you're extending the life of your conventional tires. They get used for half the year so they last longer. You have to buy tires anyway, so why not the right ones for road conditions?
What kind of tires came on your MKC? We just got a 2016 MKC Reserve and it Pirelli Centuratos. Wife says it does great in the snow and looking at the tracks they make it looks like they have a good bite.I just purchased a 2016 MKC AWD 2.3L and live in South Dakota. It slips and slides all over even though the tires are in great condition according to the dealership. We have very little snow right now. Does anyone else have this issue. If so, possible solutions?
Great if all wheel drive I live live where we can get several feet of snow didn’t get a lot of chance last year but what little I did it was great can’t wait to try it with the new Michelin crossclimate2Hi
