Looking to put new tires on my wife's Dodge Durango, The tire size is 265/50R20 which can be very expensive.

I am looking at a set of Mastercraft courser MSR (snows)or Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 all terrains
Snow's would be ideal but unsure of what the winter weather will be don't want to put them on if it's going to be warmer than normal, some input on this would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Jim

It's still good but quieter than other boards.

I think you'll find all weather boards are quiet right now. It's a transitionary period -- not thunderstorm season, not hurricane season, and prior to winter snow. Not much, weather-wise, to discuss. Watch the Euro or GFS show a snow event a week out and see the board light up.

What does that mean? What is exciting in early November? It's a boring time. Too early for snow. Just because nobody responded in 1 day doesn't mean the world is ending.

It means this board has dropped like a rock in the ocean!!! Years ago when the board was started the chatter in early November was quite extensive.. The Long range forecasts and the speculation of things to come has disappeared.. Some of the members of this forum used to write up in length their thoughts about the upcoming winter, The conversation that followed was priceless. Wheather you agreed with it or not, this board was always hopping!! Not anymore.

Just my opinion, but I have seen a major drop off with the participation on this particular forum..

On my 4wd pickup, I just run good all terrain tires.
On my passenger cars that are not AWD I put snows on in the winter right before I hear the first real snow will fall. Snow tires are much softer rubber, and wear out from heat quickly on dry roads. For my two sets of snows I have them mounted on separate steel wheels. This makes it much easier rather than going to a tire place every fall and spring to have your tires swapped and mounted and balanced again. You just slap the snow tires on yourself. Over the life of your snow tires, probably 4 or 5 years, it's cheaper to just buy cheap steel wheels rather than keep paying for mounting and balancing twice a year.

It's been like this for a while.

This forum picks up when a storm is coming.

I use the same tires all year long. No hills where I live on Long Island. When I lived in Connecticut it was so different. Plenty of hills and some very steep. When it snowed you thought twice about going out, especially considering someone could get stuck going up one of those hills and that would get everyone behind them in trouble. Where I am now, I clear the snow from the driveway and off I go.

Don’t know anyone who uses snow tires. Just good all season tires have worked for me. Roads are clear within 24 HRs of snow, so never saw the need.

Since I drive 200 miles a day snow tires are essential for my commute snow tires are much safer than all season tires all-season tires are made of harder rubber which do not do well in cold snowy weather. It is a proven fact that snow tires outperform all season tires. Stopping, accelerating, and just all-around handling, snow tires can't be beat especially where I live

If you live "out our way" and you don't have 4wd or Awd, snow tires make a HUGE difference.
