Sorry, I haven't been on in a while, but I've been too busy having loads of fun in my new rex. I'll be posting pics and what I've done to it soon too. That's a different thread though...
The cold weather is coming and it's time to get prepared. I saw a similar thread to this and I didn't want to thread-jack so I figured I'd ask here.
I know I am gonna have a dedicated summer/winter set of tires but my concern is the winter set. I am from the midwest and while we can get a lot of snow in the winter, there are still times when the snow melts and we are driving around on dry roads for a couple weeks at a time.
I read all the articles on tirerack about winter/snow tires and my concern is that my winter/snow tires would prematurely wear when I am in the dry during the winter. I've never had winter/snow tires (always all season) and I've never had a problem with driving in the snow, so I am considering putting all season tires on my winter rims.
In your experience, about how long do winter/snow tires last when they are driven on roads that are sometimes covered in snow and sometimes dry?
