    Default Did I Win? Winters on!

    Not that I planned to have them on the wife's car this early but it was in for service and due for a tire rotation anyway. I figured might as well toss them on now and avoid the big rush when the first (real) snow hits in a few weeks. So, did I win? Anyone else have them on already?

    Real winners have separate winter rims, and they can swap out themselves the morning of first snowfall.

    Real winners have winter cars so they can just hop into that instead on the morning of first snowfall.

    A real winner would not have any idea what winter tires are and would be sipping a drink oceanside in Hawaii. I curse my Euro great grandparents for taking the ship on the left for Montreal, the ship on the right was going to Australia.

    I'm always super conscious about tire wear on winters in the warm weather. I'm a big believer of not driving on them until the average is below 10 if your other set is all seasons.

    If your other set is summers/zr tires etc. Now is a really good time

    But an insurance employee definitely knows the value, and being prepared certainly is a good thing.

    I'm gonna change around halloween I think. I have higher speed rated winter tires which are awesome when there isn't snow on the ground, they retain some fun handling characteristics that most winters don't have.
