Any suggestions, are the all seasons out there decent in the snow?
I'm up in NH now and the bit of snow that we have had this year I haven't had any issues with using Continental DWS's... They are an all season tire.
The only issue I do have is when there is a layer of ice underneath the snow, or if there is so much snow that the car plows it or just rides up on top of it. I can get around when there is 4 inches or less fine, but when there is more, 6 inches plus, I just have to shovel to get out of where ever I am first... Darn town plows like to wall everyone in and these cars don't go through snow banks.
