Why You Should Take Your Off-Roading Chevy Truck Home for Christmas


​It never snows in Harlingen. While they're freezing up north, we're baking in the hot Texas sun. Naturally, you'd be hard-pressed to find anybody around here with a set of winter tires, or even all-season tires for their car.

This can pose a problem around the holiday season for those traveling by car.

When summer tires meet snow and ice, a spin-out is just waiting to happen. If your family lives someplace cold, there may be a way to survive your holiday road trip without investing in a new set of winter tires just for the occasion.

If you drive a Chevrolet pickup like the Colorado ZR2, or Silverado 1500 with the Z71 Off-Road Package, you're running on all-terrain tires. Because these tires are designed to dig into sand and mud to grab traction, they are also good at digging into snow. A recent Consumer Reports truck tire test found that all-terrain tires get better snow traction than regular all-season tires.

Who knew rock crawling and desert running translated so well into winter performance?
