I was just curious why people don't run winter tires year round? I mean if they get better traction in snow, slush, and rain then why not? Or is it that they don't last as long or something like that? :dunno:

Winter tires are usually made from a softer compound, to provide maximum traction in colder temperatures. The softer compound would wear more aggresively in warmer temperatures and result in the tires wearing out sooner. That's my take on it anyway.

Yeah, but that would be a cool burnout. You know, with sparks flying everywhere. :rck: Thanks for clearing that up for me, I figured it was because of the softer compound but didn't know if there was something else or not. Thanks again.
