Here , outside of Chicago, I'm having a tough time justifying the winter set ups , due to the weather becoming increasingly warmer. Especially considering both cars are AWD Subarus.Yeah, honestly for just driving around town or on the highways I would probably never bother, something like a BFG KO2 has decent grip. But for driving quick on snowy/icy forest roads, or for something like the Alcan rally that goes up to Alaska, gotta have those studded Hakkas. To say nothing of ice racing.
I'd be really hard pressed to swap out AT's or MT's on a truck.
The upside is, having winter set ups gives me a reason for better looking aftermarket wheels!!! LOL!!
I use the OEM wheels for winter and buy cooler looking rims for the Summer set up.
