Winter Tires

with winter fast approaching and already hitting in some areas, what would be the best winter/tire combo for the 10th gen?

figured someone had to start the discussion! might as well make it a sticky!

Do you guys switch to winter tires or do you prefer to go with all seasons? A good set of all seasons are a lot easier to deal with rather than changing your tires all the time.

with take offs, it's easy. and hour job in the garage. and that is with a hand lug wrench! i haven't invested yet into a impact...make it faster.

the difference between winter tires and all season tires...is like trying to run a full sprint around a track with tennis shoes vs. track shoes. yes, the tennis shoes will do it, but, it could get a bit 'spirited' in the corners vs. the track shoes which are made for the track.

and don't forget, winter tires are more than just snow tires - they also help with traction at temps below 40 degrees...where all season's will lost a lot of traction below those temps. why they are called WINTER tires and not SNOW tires anymore.

If I came across Winter tires I'd probably just bury them in the backyard and make planter boxes out of them! Where I live we have Summer 11 months out of the year which results in no need for Winter tires.

One of the first things I changed on my car was new Pilot Sport A/S tires.These are UHP and do a adequate job in ice and snow.As a summer tire they are great.

I do! But for funsies, not for the snow. Give it a little while and more people will chime in when the site gets more members.

Thanks! But all that means is I have no idea how to drive in the snow. I think I've done it like twice in the 15 years of driving under my belt - once in a 1997 Civic LX and the other time in my 2007 Fit base that almost got stuck in a 3-inch snowbank trying to get onto the street from a parking lot.

I always get winter tires. Been running Michelin X-Ice tires on my only 2 vehicles and always got through winter without issue. Also knowing how to drive in winter is another thing to know how to do.
