We have to spend a good thousand more for tires that will only be used for 3 months at tops.
well...in order to do that, it would increase the cost of the car - and those living in warm climates (or who put their Camaros away for the winter) - would be upset that they have this extra set of tires.......

(...not to mention shipping costs and logistics of getting the tires to the owner)

People need to quit being pansies.
No one is being a pansey, just think it's kind of ridiculous one has to spend 1-2k a couple months after purchasing a 60k vehicle. I would have rather have had it as a 1k option when paying for the vehicle not a few months after purchasing it.

I don't even drive mine in the winter, but i have three sets of rims, each with different kinds of tires. Bought two sets used and for good prices.

Scott, your a saint for even answering these comments. All I can picture is a handgun sitting at your desk and as you read these you slowly grab the gun, put to your head and then think , no not this time, but I'm getting close.
