Question: Is it wise to buy snow tires and if so what types would be best?
Answer: If you spend most of the winter in the city, you probably don’t need to be concerned with snow tires. For as few times as the roads in town get snow packed, snow tires won’t be worth using. However, if you go to the mountains a couple times a month or are a regular skier, snow tires would be a good investment.
There are four variations of snow tires: all-season tires, snow tires, studded snow tires and ice tires. All have advantages and disadvantages.
