Being softer rubber, snow tires are even safer at temps below 49

Mine went on rather early this year, Aug, after running out of tread on the current set.

Just slapped my Nokian WR_G2s on this afternoon.

GRD 4theWIN!

I can't believe how much chain tire shops want for mounting tires: $37 each!
Luckily I got out of work early and was able to get down to GRD.

That's because you live in crook county, the Firestone ran by people of the swamp charge $10 per tire but you keep the old tires.

$85 out the door. And they even cleaned up the bead sealer that the previous owner/shop put on.
GRD is by far my go to place for tire/alignment services.

I just store mine in a corner in the garage. I put a board down first then a pease of cardboard between each wheel then cover with a old blanket.

I've been storing my tires in a rack I hung from the ceiling in my heated garage 5 years ago, and they've been fine.

I also heard its best to store the tires lying flat and not to store them standing up cause it can flat spot or warp the tire.
