Do You Need Snow Tires?

With snow season upon us, more and more people are asking me about snow tires. They want to know whether their all-season tires are good enough for winter driving, or if they should spend the extra dough for a set of proper snow tires. The decision is yours. I swap my summer tires for snow tires every winter, on both my car and my wife’s AWD wagon. Opinions on snow tires tend to be like snowflakes, no two are alike and trying to catch the truth on your tongue can drive you nuts. To make it easier, check out this simple explanation and you’ll make the right choice.

    It’s also a question of how much risk does a driver want to assume. If you live in an area where there might be 1 or 2 snowy days a season, then all season tires are probably enough. If you live within a couple miles of where you work then all season might also be sufficient. If you’re a hard core skiier that makes frequent trips into the mountains then you’ll probably want snow tires.
