265 in the snow would seem like driving in a toboggan.
where did you get the tires? on tirerack they were $920 + shipping. my shipping was only $70 from them 2 weeks ago, but i only got 195s.
Picked them up locally at a Firestone. Got a decent deal considering I just wanted to get the switch out of the way and the manager offered me a decent price. The 265's surely cost a pretty penny but to me it's money a good investment. I like a good tire that performs well when it's not snowing, as well as being able to tear through winter conditions in the mountains when I head up to board.
I just hope it actually snows this year -_-
