I got $400 off Craigslist with 25 miles on my Forteras.

Not this year. I decided to go with a better performing A/S.
We'll use our other car that has snows or just stay home if necessary.

This will be my Third year with the Forteras. First two were on the 17 inch rims and a Chicago Polar Vortex. This year on 20" Overlands. No issues for me either

Re: Stock 2015 Altitude Tires and Snow

I dont mean to turn this into the I have Forteras and they work for me thread. My point is obvious. The dedicated winter tire will work better in winter weather than an all season and especially better than the OEM Forteras.

Don't NEED them, but although I grew up in Montana blizzard territory and actually "do know how to drive in snow" I also know enough about physics to know that better tires do help a bit.
Unfortunately, they also aren't miracles judging from the Subies in the ditches every winter.

The standard tires are serviceable... by no means as good as you can buy for either summer or winter driving. Skilled/experienced drivers can make do with them by the simple tactic of not doing anything really stupid, smarter drivers are aware that they are nowhere near as good as premium snows or summers.
