@kckyle thanks for the reply. Yes, I've never run dedicated snow tires for a multitude of reasons. The main ones being the actual amount of days in Iowa with snow/ice on the majority of the roads in the DSM metro is very few. Maybe a few weeks out of the winter season normally. I seek out All Season tires with good winter/snow ratings and they are sufficient for my needs and I can run them year round. But having bad rated all season tires in the winter can be terrible. I've experinced that a few times in my younger days. Plus I don't have to store a full extra set of wheels/tires somewhere.
