I'm right next door to you. I certainly agree with the importance of the tires you run.
I have to laugh at the vehicles I see in the ditch when there's a snowstorm. Just about every one is a 4x4. I don't know what's worse...
People who think a 4WD enables them to drive like the road is dry.
Won't slow down and allow a little more space between themselves and the vehicle in front of them.
This is especially true during the first couple of storms of the season. And this is from people who've driven in winter snow conditions since they first got their license.
I'm like, WTF is there to get used to? It should be automatic, like riding a bicycle.
