Just moved to Winchester, VA. Having spent my entire in the south, I have no clue what snow is.
Last year's mild winter aside. Are winter tires the way to go? I have a set of Hankook iPike 409's ready to go when my Subaru gets here at the end of the month. My plan was to mount them mid November (or if it snows before then).
People at work tell me I am crazy and the tread pattern on the iPike looks pretty serious. Obviously the OE summer tires are not the way to go, but is my current plan overkill?
