    never run snow tires in warm weather. Once the mercury says 45 swap back to summer/all seasons, the compound in snows just melts right off. You can burn through a set of snows in one summer pretty easy.

    If you have all seasons (highway/AT/MT) on your daily, during the next cold snap (Fri night/sat morn should be cold) feel your tires' rubber. press into the tread with a flat-blade screwdriver and see how much, or little, the rubber flexes. Cheap all seasons will be hard as glass, limiting how well they can grip the pavement.
    When I was stationed in GrandForks ND, it was common to see folk during their first winter, driving all season tires, to skate across the road. Dry concrete, no ice! Entirely because their tires were frozen. Often times they were coming from a warm-weather base... Even when you are used to winter weather, that first winter is brutal! There just is no way to prepare yourself for -40 to -80 weather... especially when the wind picks up...

    I mean, this year, the wife still has the snows on. Because we haven't gone anywhere. Before we know it it'll be 45 outside again.

    Bite your tongue! We just got warm weather, and UV kills all virus/bacteria.
