2004 XRS Advice for Gravel Road Driving Performance

Recommended Posts

Hello. I purchased my 2004 Matrix XRS new in 2004 and have 115,000 km. I recently moved from the city to rural area with gravel roads. I love my car and would prefer to keep it, but it is not loving the deep gravel, mud and snow conditions that exist in the country.  Any suggestions to lift it up a bit to clear the gravel and improve vehicle control? I have 17” low profile tires currently, so thinking different/ larger tires as a start? Other suggestions? Thanks!

Actually to prove control and clear the gravel, you could use the same size tire with higher profile, meaning more tire as compared to low profile. Or find one of the rare awd 2003-2004 matrix models.
