I live in NH and it is time to consider whether or not I should get winter tires. My previous cars were a 2007 Honda Pilot 4WD and before that a 2000 Toyota Sienna AWD. Both vehicles did great in snow and it was not needed for me to get a different set of tires for winter. Where I live is hilly so I will need the traction in the winter weather. With that said, I am a good driver in snow and ice, knowing how to handle the vehicle to prevent going off the road or the other lane of traffic.
