    Re: Snow tires

    I don't think I have used snow tires since I was in high school. Find a good all season tire and then you don't have to worry about the hassles.

    I've never driven on snow tires, just curious if anyone does here. *shrug*

    I would say about the only time you consider it is if you have a rear wheel drive truck/SUV and you pull a trailer around quite a bit in the winter/ice. Otherwise my opinion is they are more hassle then they are a benefit.

    No. I did buy some chains last winter. I like to ski in Colorado once in a while and would rather be safe than sorry.

    Re: Snow tires

    I have them and I love them. I hardly ever slip or slide on the snow with them. I have studless snow tires, but I have also used studded snow tires.

    Re: Snow tires

    Front wheel drive cars don't need them as badly as rear wheel drive cars unless you are trying to get through deep snow all winter long.

    Nope its been more than a year since I lived in Alaska. As much I like it where I currently live, I wouldn't mind going back to Alaska.
