    As the title says when are you guys taking your snow tires and winter wheels off? With it starting to get nice out I was thinking about doing it this weekend or the weekend after. I might do it after the next decent rain to make sure the salt is off the road.

    It only takes a light dusting of snow and everyone in Texas all of a sudden thinks that the roads have disappeared...

    Actually we do move better on the highways here in the snow than up in MA. I avoid MA in snow storms after being caught in one there. It took me over 3 hours to get from where 93 meets 495 to the MA pike, then about 1.5 from where 495 meets the MA pike to the 84 exit.

    For me a rwd truck with a locker the snows help out, plus at about $375 per wheel and tire for the 20's they are coming off for the winter.

    I had maybe 3 minutes of it, nothing accumulated. I was going to put them on this weekend but I'll wait. That or something might end up in the garage instead of this truck that already has 20's from the factory on it.
