    Ordered new Winters tires

    Cooper Evolution Winters, in 175/65R15.

    Best name brand decent tire I could find that would allow a dropped size but maintain overall diameter.

    Should be in in a couple weeks. I will review em when I mount them late October.

    $455 installed.

    Good luck with them. I'm glad I'm in an area where I can get by with all seasons year round and don't have to worry about the expense and trouble of having to change tires every 6 months. It's not uncommon for us to get a few snowfalls each year and occasionally get an ice storm but in 43 years of driving I've never needed winter tires to get where I needed to go. I usually have more trouble here in my own driveway than anywhere else I go.

    Extra cost? What about having a second set of tires costs extra? Maybe the rims are a sunk cost, I guess?

    I suppose not everyone gets a second set of wheels for their summers/winters. Swapping tires over twice a year adds up.

    I usually buy 70-75K mile all seasons and they last for several years. Two sets and they'd rot before I wore out both sets so it would be an extra expense. Sure I could go to a 40K mile tire but that wouldn't cut the cost enough to pay for a second set of tires. If I needed winter tires I'd definitely have a second set of wheels and wouldn't pay $80-$100 to have them removed from the wheels and re-balanced every 6 months. I bought an extra steel wheel for mine just so I could have a full size spare instead of one of the donuts that you're not supposed to run more than about 45-50 MPH on.
