Thanks guys. Right now any snow tire would be precautionary because the last time we had a warm November like this one Southern NE got no snow and I burned up the new snow tires I bought in 2001 on dry pavement but I have an extra set of rims now so I could swap them on only when it snows. (The wife is calling me a geek).
