Default All seasons for Mammoth and Big Bear suggestions

I need new tires and I guess I need to get a new set of All Seasons since I go to the mountains.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone go up to the mountains in summer tires, I am sure some of you do.

I feel snow tires are a waste for us, unless you live up there.

Last year my All seasons didn't see any snow, maybe a little wetness on the road at the most.

It was always clean pavement and relatively warm out when I went.

Summer tires in the snow are just stupid, even if you come up just once. The factory re92's work just fine in the snow. It's how you drive and knowing the conditions, not the best snow tire that will get you through the winter.

Everytime I post this though I get some OC snowboard kids who come up a few times a year telling me I'm wrong, even though I've been living up here the better part of my life.

I agree. I just get sick of people saying the re92's on stockers suck in the snow, and then they come up with summer tires on.

haha I know right..


I was thinking of getting Potenza RE960 Pole Position or Continental Extreme Contact.

I was hoping to have a tire that did it all. So I don't need two sets of rims but there maybe no way around that.

Thanks I'll check Tucker Tire, saw in another post they have used tires, so that may solve my predicament

I've driven Re92's in the snow and they do very well.

I've driven Falken Ziex 512's in the snow and they did better than the Re92's.

My Ziex saw 2 seasons and one very heavy snow season and they did very well. don't risk summer tires up there, we don't need any unecessary accidents that clog up the already busy highways to the resorts.

I have the Pirelli PZeros M+S. They've seen some light snow and mud up at Big Bear and they handled it like champs. I haven't driven in heavy snow though.

Blizzak WS-50. Nuff said. Get a dedicated set of wheels for it, so you can use it whenever you need it.
