Given the warmer temperatures and the lack of snow (once or twice a year) we have been experiencing here in the DC metro area, it is hard to justify buying snow tires. I know that the Bridgestones that my car is equipped with offers less grip in the colder months, however this is not enough to propel me to spend $800 (rims and tires). Instead I have been driving a little slower and in the event of snowfall I plan on working from home (as may be the case later tonight). Honestly, for me it is peace of mind knowing that temporary solutions exist.
