I spend my winters in Telluride/Vail and its ridiculous how many Land Rovers are out here running either aftermarket summer performance tires or standard all seasons. As Telluride is partnered with Land Rover, you notice it a lot down there. The dealers & brand reps are the ones I hold responsible here as they keep telling customers "Its a Range Rover, it is great in the snow and doesn't need snow tires!". Doesn't matter how great the car is (which all LR's are), without the right contact to the ground all that tech won't help you. Especially around here with our extreme elevation and winter conditions the roads get SERIOUSLY sketchy. Anyhow, tired of the dealers and brand reps I've spoken to spewing this BS and putting customers at risk. I see them crashed and banged up on the side of the road all winter long..... When you're in the mountains....all cars need snow tires, period. I run Nokian Hakka R2 SUV and even with those mountain driving over Vail Pass can get mad sketchy.... Almost wish I had gone studded....
