After a few days I decided that it was time to dump the AS tires. I'm going to be skiing this winter so it is worth getting a set of winter shoes. I also look forward to improved ice handling which is typically a bigger problem in the Portland area. As we all know X Drive improves snow traction and handling, but doesn't do sh*t for stopping. A delivery truck was stuck sideways across one of the roads down from the hill for 3 days. Bizzaks go on tomorrow. The local Firestone dealer is matching Tire Rack's price.
hi E91AWD, I'm from PDX, too. Currently my car has snow cables on, but I had hard time to put them on and off the car. So I decide to buy a set of snow tires, Can you tell me where the Firestone dealer sell the tires matching TireRack's price, please? If you have their phone number, that be great!
