  2. Love my 2017 base soul with manual transmission...but need snow tires...

    New Member Introductions
    Hi all, About one year ago I purchased a 2017 base with manual transmission, I love it. However, I live in the northeast and my experience last winter 'strongly suggested' switching out all weather to snow tires this coming winter and into the future. Snow tires/wheels are reasonable, but...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    After 40,000 miles my stock tires are half way worn down. With a Vermont ski vacation planned, I geared up for safety. Chrome dome caps on universal 16 inch wheels with Winterforce tires. The look is retro, and so am I. That is the time machine in the background. Sure footed feeling on any...

    So I've been bopped around quite a bit in the snow over the last few years in my 2011 with little to no problems but I want to step up my game with chains. Anybody have any input?

  10. Do Studded Snow Tires Repel Deer?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I haven't been able to find any empirical data on this, but this is something I noticed last year and so far this year. I'm wondering if it's just my imagination. In short, it seems to me that the noise from studded tires repels deer. I've noticed that they tend to run away (that is, into the...

  14. Winter problems

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I am 3 months into my new Soul 2015, still loving the panoramic roof and all the gadgets. First snow today, and I was all over the place except on the road. The car apparently has the ability to get out of Automatic, and there is the traction control button. Does anyone have experience...
  15. Soul in First Snow

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So, I had my 16" Michelin x-ices and steelies installed with great anticipation for first big snowfall. Got it last night (over a foot already) and just took a short drive on city roads. Have been driving an old Saturn until now so was kind of testing out the car to see how it would handle...

  17. Firestone Winterforce Winter tires

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I just got my winterforce tires from tire rack today. I downsized to 195/65/15 wheels mounted on alloy rims. I originally wanted to get steel wheels but then thought by the time i buy a decent set of wheel covers i might as well just go for a cheap pair of alloy wheels at 85 bucks a piece...

  20. Winter / Snow Tires for next year ...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Ok, so I'm sure this has been covered many times but my question seems to be a BIT different. I have the 2011 Soul Exclaim with the Sport Suspension and 18" rims. I live in CT and our Winters the last couple years have been pretty bad, but luckily with my job I don't need to go out if it's...
