winter tires

joe_mnMarch 17, 2010

i have a set of 1/2 worn blizzaks on my car. i need to buy all season tires before summer. i do have a set of summer tires but they are down to 1/4 tread and probably not worth having mounted. mounting/balancing is not cheap so why not put it towards new tires? maybe i can sell the blizzaks for $50 and get someone to buy them. or find another set of rims?

Or leave the blizzaks on and wear them out the rest of the way this summer, and then replace them with a good set of all season tires. Mounting and dismounting 2 sets of tires on one set of wheels is a waste of money imo. If you want dedicated winter tires, buy a set of cheep rims and pay only once for mounting and balancing. jmo

we bought a car 3yrs ago in june and it came with blizzaks. good shape. 3/4tread. the guy threw in a set of Z rated tires with 1/4 tread. put them on and than got AS tires in november. kept blizzaks for my car. we had 4 cars at the time that all used the same size tire. put blizzaks on 1 car and sold it the next spring. been warm here. 60's for mn is not normal. son has car in duluth. they get lots of snow so i don't think winter is over for them yet. will get AS tires for his car in may? than get rid of blizzaks.
