Finally ordered snow tires...

Here in the KC area we don't typically get a LOT of days in the winter with accumulated snow, and with the year's mildness I've been putting off buying snows. Well, the winter weather is now approaching fast and I went in search of tires. Guess what? No one in the KC area carries snow tires 18s or above. No one.

I ended up ordering a set from tirerack.com with rims. They will mount and balance the tires and deliver them sometime next week. Unfortunately, the snow will be here tomorrow...

Good idea not just for snow but for cold weather, but in your case you can just buy Conti ExtremeContact DWS, or Pirelli P Zero nero, they both ultra high performance all season tires and have a great winter reviews on tirerack too

I'm riding on Turanza all-seasons right now and the one day we had a little snow dusting they seemed to do well, but I'd heard that real snow tires can make a huge difference when there is accumulation so I bought Blizzaks. I'll ride those through March and switch back to the Turanza.

I'm also thinking about picking up a winter beater...
