I got snow tires for the first time on my AWD Santa Fe and that combination is amazing!
In WA/OR I agree, it would be hard to justify 2 full sets of tires in your climate. I'm not that familiar with the range of tire available. I would stop by your local Les Schwab store and ask them about all season tires with good ice traction.Is there a preferred all weather tire I should consider? I’d rather not have to swap out. Thanks
