    Going to put my wife's on this weekend because they're non-studded, and her summers are kind of worn. Mine aren't going on until the end of the month because studded.

    I have had those on my truck for the past 2 years too. But mainly because the jack i have is too small to lift my truck up to get them off. I need to go find a floor jack, thanks for reminding me, I wanna put my studded winters on this year.

    I ran duratracs on my truck for 2 winters and loved them. Snow was my bitch, even better than the winters I swapped on last year. Decided to move to cooper discovers last winter, but almost regret just not doing another set of duratrac. Only improvement with dedicated winters is on compact snow/ice.

    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?
    Had my tires put on a couple weeks back, but I needed brand new tires and I just run all season M+S

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

    Is it already snowing in Calgary? Fuck I hope it stays clear for a few more weeks. Might potentially want to do a trip in the Aston to Calgary to swap it something equally as inept in winter (without proper tires). lol

    I want to get a set of dedicated winters for the F150, but we will see. I was happy with my KO2s when I had them on the old truck. the OEMs on the new body style are infinitely better than the poorelli garbage they had before.

    Shit, here I was wanting to pick up a set of Niche wheels for whatever was left of Fall

    Guess the priority now is getting a set of new studded winters for my car.

    Duratracs are great on snow, but man they're a giant load of shit on the typical calgary icy road

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


    that's what I'm doing.

    Got some Toyo G3's onto the "winter beater" this week. Nice days will be in the summer car(s).

    Had the truck shod with Cooper at3's on Friday morning, perfect timing. Pretty good tire, pushed through more than a foot of snow down rural road this morning , pretty good for a 2wd truck.Our MD decided to do nothing as the snow fell.

    Learned something I already knew but it's good to revisit.
    BFG Sport Comp-2's are not suitable for cold temps and amazingly useless in snow. It was amazing how useless these things are in snow and a great reminder of how incredible actual snow tires are at doing their job.
    I'm still glad I delayed putting my Blizzaks on until real winter starts but the simple task I had to do in those Summer tires was a shocking ordeal. My ABS must be tired!

    And it’s important to remember that nothing in the last 3 days really counted as cold temps lol
