winter tires?

its that time of the year. I would like new tires for the coming winter driving season. I bought a new set of alloy wheels this summer and mounted them with my old tires. should i get all-season tires for them or get a set of winter tires for my stock rims I still have? I am leaning towards getting winter tires and just putting them on the stock rims. I have had new A/S tires on previous cars that were lousy in snow. I think almost any winter tire would be better than any A/S tire. why buy an all-around tire when i should get a winter tire? the roads are well plowed in minnesota but are almost always icy. its hard to cover every square inch of road with sand and salt but the highway dept. tries real hard.

I'd get some winter tires and put them on your old rims. Keep the good wheels off the road during the winter...

I'd recommend dedicated winter rims/tires, this way you can use a summer tire (higher performance) in the good months and swap to the winters as soon as you expect snow

plus no all season will atch the traction of a true winter tire in the messy stuff (obviously) I bought a set of Dunlop Graspics for my spare rims and love them

Agreed. If you only have one set of wheels, go for a GOOD set of All Seasons. But, if you have a set of nice alloys AND a set of steelies or something, get some dedicated snow tires for the winter, and save the alloys for warmer, less corrosive weather.

I've now gone to dedicated winters and summers, even though witners aren't too bad around here, I do head up the mountains for snowboarding, so winters help me a lot. I just did it backwards and got the winters first, then new rims. enjoy.
