Well I know that the dedicated snow tires of the last few decades don't last very long - especially if you run them for half of the driving year due to these soft compounds. If you leave them on your vehicle for half of the driving year they'll be gone in two winter seasons. In the conditions out here on the coast the need for these tires is only 2 - 3 months, unlike back east where the real winter still exists. Silica (glass?) in the rubber is the new way is it?
