    [SIZE="3"]Hey guys, I have the stock tires on my new 2010 TRD sport, and I have been thinking about winter tires... I live in Nashville area, not too bad, but last year it was rough for a few weeks...
    In any case, I was wondering how many of you have 2 sets of tires, all weather and winter tires??
    What is your solution for that?
    I have been looking in some videos on youtube, it is amazing the difference of driving quality and stopping power when someone has winter tires!
    And like someone said on their video... "your insurance premium in an car rack will more likely be more than a set of winter tires anyway"

    I run agressive all-seasons or all-terrains year round. No second set of tires here. Currently running Cooper ATR's. A couple reasons for a second set would be if one set is studded. Legally you can't run then year round. Also, you could run a street tire during the summer and a winter tire during the winter. A street tire will perform better during the summer months. Lots of different methods of thinking or reasons.

    I live in NB Canada, would not consider getting through the ice and snow of winter without the snows on. Of course we get about 4 months of bad winter weather here, not just a couple of weeks.

    We do on my wifes car. I have a second set of wheels so I can change them in the garage whenever I feel. We bought her a set of studless snow tires, it is great having a dedicated set of winter tires and wheels. If the steel winter wheels get dented so what, it is a lot cheaper than replacing the factory ones. On my truck I have not yet, mostly due to money at the moment. I would like to in the future.
