    I just ordered them last night and got the call back from them today. They will not be making these tires anymore due to low sales. I asked if that meant in the EU or just the US. I was told it was both. They are being replaced with an all weather tread...

    Well, son of a motherless goat! :baldy

    :clap Hot Dang!!! They have 51 Snow + tires in stock!!! Now a few less than that!! :freaky

    I don't know the birth date on the tires, but I'm willing to take the chance. Remember, Safety Third! :deal







    Ok, I'll ask him when he calls back with the shipping quote...:1drink

    I knew Premier had plenty because I asked my local guy and that is where he gets his.

    Glad you got a few and I'll bet they are fairly fresh since they came in this year. I bought the last one they had last year for Elmer, or was that two years ago?

    Dave-d got the Vredestein Snow+ installed on the drive and car wheels before the RTB 3 rally. His wife really liked them in the gravel but they seemed to wear her out faster on pavement. They chased my old Goose around the northern hill country on Saturday, until I was stopped by a flat.

    She sure handles that great and I had a blast leading. It was a great day with great company.

    A thread hijack, hopefully ended quickly, go HERE. Still current. They're reflective, too!

    I don't see blizzak mentioned much as a pusher, do they not last long on pavement ? Has anyone taken a tire groovier to a nanking ? I sort of feel I should try that at least so my pusher doesn't outlive me.Happy T-day.DB
