Re: First Experience with new truck in snow

Question - Do snow tires make the ride less enjoyable? Any reason to not have snow tires for all year round? Seems expensive and a pain to get snow tires for a few months then switch back.

The Blizzaks turn your rig into a Zamboni. Great in the snow and on ice. In cold weather, there's nothing that make the ride less enjoyable. However, they're softer rubber. When the temp goes up above 40F, or so, the handling responsiveness may seem sloppy (softer). No, you'd not want to leave them on all year round. I'd left a set on one of my cars over the summer, and they "melted" - tread wore out alot. When I put my stock tires on (to trade in for my WK2 ), I noticed steering was more precise.
So, that covers soft-type winter tires. As far as knobby tread (AT like), IDK, but I think you might expect more noise.
