our snow tire law has a huge flaw though, the period starts before snow hits, and last well after snow is gone, so if you have high quality rubbers, you lose them prematurely.

that's what happened to the owner of the tire shop near my place, he had brand new high end yokohamas that lasted one winter, the company refused to honor the warranty because he drove them too long on asphalt.

i have chains, and i think i used them 1 time,. and took them off, felt like i was driving a tank down the road



my theroy, slow down, don't make any sudden moves on snow,a nd ice, adn you should be just fine... when the blizzard hit portland a couple years about, i have to drive 50 miles to get home to eugene, it took me 2.5 hours to get home, any faster than 20 was speeding, and i had trucks blowing past me on I5, and i would end up passing them after they landed in the ditch, my truck never hiccuped once, and i was on worn out studded winter tires, and i did better then 4X4's

How does that work? They were snow tires....made for the road...government mandated and he couldn't get the warranty even though they didn't last like they were supposed too?

The company's warranty doesn't take into account the gov's stupidity. They said they were snow tires only meant to be driven on snow, not during fall or spring.

I have no idea, I kinda follow my own way most places I go lol I tend to like to explore and I miss the Oregon coast, did a bicycle trip down it a few years back and had a couple spots I wanted to drop by again. Unless you got a different thought?
