Tires for a boxster?

Recommended Posts

i bought a pre owned porsche boxster, it is almost an year that i have the car now.

i think its time to replace the tires.

i will be driving it in state of missouri.. slight snow..

can any one suggest what kind of tires i need to buy?

are snow tires suitable only when it snows? do we have to switch them with regular tires for summer?

is there any thing like all season tires?

All-season tires mean you'll sacrifice a bit in both summer and winter performance, but there are some pretty good choices out there if you don't want to spring for two sets right now.

I got a set of Yokohama Advan S4s (UHP all-season) for my 987 S - about $900 from TireRack - and had them mounted by my local shop. Dry/wet performance is very good, and they'll get you around in light snow too. True winter tires would be better, of course, but we don't really get enough snow here to justify it...

I drove my 987S with Mickh PS2's back from Germany in light snow a few years back. If you are on a main road where the snow is melting then you will be ok as long as you dont plan to overtake and get onto the ridge of snow in the middle. Off main road in car parks etc, traction is a lot worse particularly on gradients. If you must drive the car in all weathers , its better to get an all year or winter tyre fitted. the PS2's are a summer tyre only.
