Yup, 2 sets of tires and rims. A costly investment, however the 20" mags are much too nice to get ruined from all the winter road salt, not to mention the price of 20" dedicated winter are astronomical. Straight winter tires are a legal requirement here.Shirtmkc, so this mean you have two sets of rims n'est-ce pas? We just ordered Nokian 19" allweather tires and on a wait list for them (maybe next week). We are looking forward to not having to store extra tires and rims.
Guess tires and pressure are important to you Canadians. How bad is your driving conditions and it sounds like some of you are mandated to have snow tires?I stored my 20"s right at the dealer, and had them install 18" Michelin snow tires along with TPMS.... a worthwhile safety investment in my books.
I got pleasantly surprised today....a knock at our front door...answer the door and there is a nice gentleman delivering a wonderful gift basket full of goodies, and the coolest mug in it's centre, curtesy Ford Lincoln (Holiday Ford Lincoln) in Peterborough....that was very thoughtful and a very sweet gesture. There's a jar of Italian stuffed olives, a pack of roasted almonds, some pack of speciality coffee, a bunch of Godiva chocolates , oranges, a wall candle ornament, and a whole lot more...I mean this was a pretty large basket!!!! Nice touch indeed!
Thank you Holiday Ford for the appreciated holiday cheer lol
Wow. Glad I don't live where you do :smile. Does your MKC get "damaged" or taken any beating physically from all that?5.0 Candy you sure do have a great Lincoln dealer! The dealer I bought from in Barrie doesn't even bother to keep in touch unless I contact them first...not really impressed with them at all.
I would never drive without winter tires and this time around I got the tires studded as well. We tend to get a lot of snow and freezing rain and I have a 25 km drive to work as I live out in the country. Combine that with a steep, uphill 125 foot driveway from the road to my garage and nothing works better than studded, winter tires on an AWD vehicle.
This winter has been crazy warm...it is 14 C (57 F) here today and no snow on the ground.
