I don't have snow tires. I just have regular all season tires. I've never had snow tires. Most everyone I know has snow tires. I live in a ski resort and we get lots of snow. So, the question that arises is am I an idiot or visionary pioneer. It can be quite expensive if you change your tires twice a year. Then there's the matter of storing the winter tires in the summer. I get the feeling some people leave their snow tires on year round--and that's not smart as they aren't made for the hot roads of summer.Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
