I didn’t want to Mount and demount snows this year so I decided to go with an all weather tire versus all season. Went w/ Nokian wrg4 all weather supposed to be better than all seasons and almost as good as snows. Terrible tire Almost got stuck in deep snow. 1 to 2 inch snow on salted roads have to drive under 20 mph with stabilitrack. Turn off stability track and they’re dangerous. 0° dry salted roads they are slippery. So stay away from them. Lots of nice wheels and one-year-old snows on craigslist, but have to match bolt pattern, offset, and center bore. I didn’t have any luck with that. if you go to 17 inch wheels with tirerack, my understanding is the best snow tire for your money is the general altimax arctic. Since it’s late in the season you probably already made your decision. I’d be interested in what you did. Thanks.
