What are the best snow tires for a Ford Explorer?
My friends and I are taking a road trip to New York this winter, and I’m so excited! I’ve just never driven in snow before and I heard the weather gets pretty dicey this time of year. What are the best snow tires for a Ford Explorer?

That sounds like a fun trip! Luckily for all drivers, they are prepared for winter storms in that part of the country so the roads will be regularly plowed. For added peace of mind, we’d say the best snow tires for the Ford Explorer are the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2 tires thanks to their unique tread compound that stays flexible during subzero temperatures.
If you can’t find the Latitude X-Ice Xi2 tires, the budget-friendly Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady tires are another great option for the Ford Explorer SUV. These capable tires deliver impressive performance in snow, ice, and mud, too.
