studded tires

Okay so I know its almost summer so this question comes in a bit late... I drove all winter in my new edge mustang and had summer tires on the whole time! Got stuck a few times, had to back down a couple hills that I couldn't make it up... Yes I should have bought winter tires or at least put weight in the trunk but I was cheap and lazy I guess!...

Annnyways just thinking ahead about next winter and was thinking about a nice set of winter tires and I have heard of people getting there's studded! ..
Anyone have experience with this? do they last the whole winter? do you notice a difference? If the roads aren't snow covered one day or you hit pavement do they just bust off....

They will last all winter if you don't drive crazy. I'm not sure you are a loud to have them on a rear wheel drive car though.

Studded tires along with chains are completely illegal in MD.

well I would never drive around with chains on my tires lol that's a bit overboard... but studs?... I see offers from tire shops with offers for studding tires. Just curious how useful they are or if its a bit over board or useless due to most likely not always having the roads fulla ice and snow..

Maybe if one flew off it would be easier to hit the car behind you if the car is rwd. I said I wasn't sure.

I think that you need a winter tire that is "studdable" and I'm not sure that they make one in 245/45R17.
I hear that the Bridgestone Blizzaks are a good choice for a "winter only" tire in the climate that you live in...

I drive in a winter area and drive studless winter tires with no issues. We aren't allowed studs and I won't put chains on this car.

The best snow tires in my opinion is Bridgestone blizzaks for stud less and Firestone winter force for studded ones.

I agree

Yea live in TN and used to work PT for Goodyear.
They are not allowed on the road here anymore either.
To many dummies drove them in good weather and tore up the roads.
But they let the Omish ride on the road with steal wheels.
