    Porsche Cayenne

    I live in Michigan. Will this car be good in Winter without snow tires?

    No - you will always need snow tires in a climate like Michigan (I know - I lived in Novi for 6 years). Why not just get a second set of rims with good snow tires and be done with it (and be safe). Most likely about 2-3K from Tirerack) That's what I do with my snow Porsche (911 4S).

    Interesting. The guy at Lavery Porsche told me that I can get all weather tires on a Macan and I wouldn't need snow tires. Is he wrong?

    I have not driven a Macan, but I would say he is not correct. You can get around, but to be safe and have good solid stopping power you should get snow tires. Why not have a set of good summer tires and enjoy the summer with great grip and handling and then have a set of winter tires to be safe in the winter? Not that expensive - you can even just have one set of rims and swap the tires twice a year if you do not ant to spend the money on a second set of rims. Check out TireRack for options at www.tirerack.com. Even better - call them and ask for Damon. He is a great resource for information and very knowledgeable.

    The Cayenne is a great SUV. I just ordered my third one. Any vehicle needs Snow Tires in the Winter.
