This. Why don't more people realize this, instead of worrying about wearing down the tread of their precious snow tires like they were studded with gold? The tread you wear on the snow tires you save on your summers; in the end the cost pretty much evens out. Plus you get the peace of mind and traction in cold temperatures especially at night.

Madryga saying this morning there's a chance of snow at higher levels and in the burbs come Friday/Saturday. Better keep those winter tires on!

Global BC | Snow, blast of winter predicted for Metro Vancouver


Quote:
METRO VANCOUVER - Lower Mainlanders hoping to put away their winter coats and boots may be in for a surprise as a cold front has been predicted by Accuweather.com to bring more flurries early next week.

The U.S.-based weather site predicts almost 5 cm of snow could fall in Vancouver next Monday, Feb. 27.

The snow is forecast to last until next Thursday and could continue to dump on the local ski mountains, which have enjoyed a late-season spike in people carving up their slopes.

I never understand why people swap out their winter tires before the winter season is over. Like Mindbomber said, they're winter tires, not snow tires. You get far better traction in low temperatures even if it's above 0* and there have been mornings where I've seen neighbour's cars covered in ice, even over the past couple weeks.

All I can say is that if I'm hit during either a cold snap or a snow fall by one of you guys who decided to swap out your winter tires, there will be hell to pay.

Winter tires go on my car when the average temp drops below 8* degrees ish...

Here in Bavaria, all cars must have winter tires on all four corners from late Nov to Easter otherwise it's something like a 60eur fine per corner.
