I DO NOT want to spend $1300 on a set of rims and tires for 2 days of snow
Don't. Use that 1,300 and buy a real nice taxi ride....or pay ur buddies gas for a ride in his truck, rent a limo, take a bus, or better yet...STAY HOME! Take a vacation!
Ok...I'm giving you a hard time over taking you literally. I apologize...but only meant it in fun. Seriously, if it's just two days a year, I'm sure 99% of people will just suck it up. Get a ride, drive in it extra careful, et.c
