Actually I've never seen the need for AWD. I have no issues with my Accord and snow tires. Drove right through the storm last week from Riverton WY through Casper (18" of snow) through the hills and back home. Snuck on the Interstate for the few hours it was open. Only have AWD because my wife wanted it, and it is her car. They always close the roads well before I have any issues. I do see plenty of AWD vehicles in the ditch though - probably don't have snow tires. Ride and noise of the new studless tires is equal to all-seasons and much better than the aggressive truck tires. Look at reviews on Consumer Reports.Just wondering. I'm 50, lived here my whole life, hunt, fish, ice fish, and have never seen the need for snow tires. I'd think the ride and noise wouldn't make changing them worth while?
New tires. Didn't like the factory size on the new wheels. Went with 265/50/20. Looks a lot better IMO.
