    South Dakota? I'm assuming these are winter tires? That's a good brand too. My wife's G4 has the 15" wheels too but I'll slap some much cheaper 185 55 r15 tires on when the time is right. We don't use winter tires down here.

    You don't? Doesn't Georgia get snow too? I thought in the state of both South and North Carolina for examples get snow and Georgia is a bit further down.

    Nothing that warrants having to own a whole other set of tires. Nobody sprays their car's undercarriage for rust protection either, as our highways rarely have salt on them, it snows so infrequently and pathetically. 2" of snow will shut down Atlanta for days.

    Try searching for 185\55 instead, and I'll bet you'll find a better cross section of selection and pricing.

    There's a reason for that. Northern snow is easy driving. I lived in Michigan for 5 years. Once it's well below freezing, the snow is just powder. Down here the snow is just slush. It's when the climate is a bit under freezing at night, and just a couple degrees above it during the day. Precipitation freezes at night, and then turns to "greasie" ice during the day. That's what happens in Atlanta area, pretty much at worse case conditions. It happens up north too, before it get's to the colder days of winter. And guess what? Those snow birds up there can't drive on ice either. Had a northern snob coworker keep giving me crap about how southern people can't drive in inclement weather. Only to turn around and crash his snob bmw in the snow the very next winter. My wife and I never crashed while we were there. And I drove on Maypops when I lived there.

    However, the reason we don't salt down here is, every 6 years or so, when we get snow, it's melted and gone by noon the next day. No need for the equipment and chemicals. God takes care of it. Most of the time. Just the occasional icing for drama.

    In any event, the first mention of snow, all bread, milk and toilet paper are wiped out at the grocery stores, as if we'll be trapped in our houses for a month.
