I have a 2012 tundra, tires have very good tread but have noticed in with snow covered roads, from full stop to accelerate the rear tires will spin easily unless I feather it and on curves the back end can get squirly. Doesnt affect stopping. Obviously if in 4 WD no issues at all.

Full disclaimer, I dont have a cap yet and only a couple of 70 lb sand bags in the back otherwise empty. Could that be part of the issue? These Michelin tires came with the truck when I bought it used so dont know if there are better ones I should be looking at.

Thanks,

Obviously you haven't changed over to winter air in your tires.
Wacked, not trying to be a smart ass or sound stupid, but was that a joke? :)
Dead serious.

Winter air is a more condensed version of summer air and therefore by nature heavier. So when using the winter air, especially in areas with heavy snow you have the added benefit of added traction.

Oh, and Wacked not being a smart ass will never happen.

Never mind, I didn't see the comma in your statement. >:D

OK thanks. To be honest I have never heard of winter air. Can you expand on that for me please? What is it and where to get it? Sorry for the newbe question.

Any local auto parts store should carry it. Usually I find it next to the hollow spark plug wires, or sometimes even near the performance floor mats. If it's not on display, sometimes they keep it in the back near the synthetic halogen fluid.

Thanks Ric. I will google this too, but imagine you are not totally emptying the air in the tires just adding this to it??

Thanks,
