I can't call it homie.
All I can say is that I've never seen a set of snow tires in person, putting the Evo away for 4 to 6 months would be a nightmare, and my last winter consisted of 2 inches of rain.

Fo' realz, no puttin' the Evo away for me, but I do have to use snow tires here in the Pikes Peak region! It's not that bad really - just a few weeks out of the winter are bad enough. Last winter, I couldn't get out of my driveway for a week due to having sloped driveway where all the snow piles up much higher than normal in the depression at the bottom. It wasn't a traction issue, but rather a bottoming out issue. I couldn't even dig it all out from that deep, but then again, I'm from Alabama and have no freakin' clue what to do with heavy snow.

I lived in the U.P. of mich. for a year and it would snow 3 feet in one night once a month or so and it was always snowing. for 3-4 months you dont really see the sun its more like a gray cloud over the whole sky. I will never live there again worst place i have ever lived. I have a 3"lift and 30" tires on my jeep and there where many mornings when i had to go to work and had to spend 30 mins dirting that out. snow up to the rear window!

The snowmobile trails suck, there is only two groumers for the whole U.P. so the trails are all ripped up. and snowboarding is not bad that is one of the reasons why i moved there. but i lived in wausau,wi and rib mt. was i only a 5 min drive from my house which rib mt. has two or three times the runs as the hills by my house in the U.P.
