Re: Worth switching to winter tires?
4wd helps get you going(into trouble?), but it doesn't help you stop, steer, and get out of the way of people like my brother in law who says, "i got 4wd, i'm good in my F150", but won't drive in snow with it cuz he's all over the road(running GY Silent Armors, no weight in bed). We run blizzaks, or studs on 4wd trucks, wranglers, durangos, and grands...no questions. The wife first realized how much of a difference on her old front wheel drive, now she won't be with out the blizzaks. If I lived where there was more "deep" snow, I would go with studded Duratracs, where we are in OH, we get wet ice, some deep snow, light snow that is just enough to make everything slippery, and all the "4wd SUV's" going 15mph scared of winter(amazing, comes every year they seem to forget that)get passed by us in our blizzak wearing Jeeps, and we can stop at the light, and make our turns. Just saying, how many people do you see going slow in their car when the weather is bad. They probably spend more on golf, vacation, whatever, but won't spend a few bucks on some extra safety/security for their family for the winter. I don't get it.
If you were born here, you're American, no colors, no races...know your heritage and be proud of it, but act like an American, or go to the nearest coast or border...AND LEAVE!!
