If you live in a area that’s gets any decent amount snow/ice, snow tires are a very wise investment. My friend learned this lesson the hard way today after Pittsburgh got a surprising amount of snow with some ice underneath it.
Although he wasn’t traveling very fast, <20, he was not able to stop, thus running into another vehicle. Not sure what tires are on his car, but I imagine they’re something crappy the dealer put on.
Damage doesn’t look crazy bad, but dealing with insurance is never pleasurable. Stay safe out there, Oppo’s!
