For those of us who are active in the winter tire threads of years gone by and have a memory, please stop pointing out the differences between up there and down here.
We get it. Everyone up there is acclimatized to it b/c they have to be and will learn fast if they dont.
well several people have said "you don't need snow tires in Vancover" which is arguable and really its about money because all snow tire thread are about money not performance not actually whether you really need snow tires … the question is in essence "whats the least I can skate (don't miss the pun) by on?"
and so I argue the point because thats what we do in a forum and so if one person stays out of the ditch after reading my POV its worth y'all having to listen
OTOH if you said "I won't pay for real snow tires cuz I am a cheap fuck" that is self explanatory so I will just agree with you in fact no comment is needed
BC should just make snow tires mandatory like quebec, it will mean a huge $$ for the tire shops, accidents will go down , more people will get to work … an economic boost
edit:If the BC gov ever grows a pair and saves y'all from yourself by making snow tires mandatory, get your new snow tires ASAP because what happened when snow tires became the law in quebec was a run on snow tires in quebec and a shortage in the rest of canada, fortunatley that year I ordered my new snow tires (haks of course ) in early september and I got my tires
