Re: OEM tires are horrible in Snow.
Here's something you might want to check out! I bought a set of 265/60R18 Michelin X-Ice snow tires today from Tire Rack. Had them mounted on dedicated 18" wheels with Tire Pressure Sensors for my Summit so I could just swap them in November and back again in March. All's good you say? Wrong!
Just got a call from the good folks at Tire Rack and these tires are illegal for my Summit. In Pennsylvania if the tires you have on the car are smaller than what is on the door placard (20") the car will fail inspection. Depending upon when your annual inspection falls this might not be a problem but here's yet another case of legislators feeling the need to insert themselves into every detail of your daily life. Unbelievable.
Not meant to be a political rant, just a heads up to check your local laws.
