MarshallV82 I've never had snow tires, I really would like to get some but it seems like it's overkill for my truck. I've never really had issues getting to the mountains, even on the worst of days..

My Infiniti doesn't leave the garage in the winter time!

djmisio85 Just picked up some Yokohama Ice Guard 5's for my evo My last set were IG20's, and to be honest, they still gripped ok after 11years, but the sidewalls had taken their toll over the years and were so wobbly that I finally had to upgrade.

They are at the garage now getting put onto my winter rims. Can't wait to try out these brand spanking new tyres this weekend

mhaas I used all seasons on my 4WD pickup. I don't doubt that snowtires make a difference but it really hasn't been an issue for me. 4wd and taking it easy on snowy roads gets the job done for me. Plus I move around a lot so storing extra truck tires would get annoying.

PorkCereal I'm a Florida transplant to Massachusetts, so my 2wd truck isn't really suited, especially with custom 20in performance tires. Had to get a set of snows second year up here. Way too squirrely without.

I personally think that mandatory winter tire is a good thing.

I usually buy mine used as so many people forget about them in their garage when they return the car at the end of their lease. $150-$200 for 4 brand-name tires with 75-80% tread life is pretty normal. Noticeable braking improvement and extends the life of your other tires.

Financially, owning 2 sets of tires and getting nearly twice the use is pretty much a wash.

Sure enough, as we finally made some progress getting up into the foothills we found the reason for the backup. There was a Lexus IS300 (rear wheel drive) with summer tires spinning it's wheels all over the road. And about 100 feet infront of it was a Mazda 3 with summer tires all over the road spinning it's wheels. Those two dickheads added an hour onto our commute. After we passed them traffic was completely clear except for a few cars stuck in ditches that had clearly been driving way too fast for the conditions.


Even the cheapest set of snowtires in existence will be infinately better than the most expensive set of all-seasons. You can buy a set of super cheap snow tires and have them mounted for around $300. There is no excuse to not have them!

Just be prepared to buy them 'til you die... You'll never want to go back!
