My Story

We're excited about our new tires and can't wait to see how they hold up this winter.  We're keeping this blog to chronicle our journey through the ice and snow until we get back to the other side-the still cold and wet days of Spring.

Many Miles, Long Drives, and Awesome Tires!

So, we stared an adventure at the end of February.  We sold our Michigan home, had one last snow storm on our way out.  Our WRG3's had a lovely goodbye to the snow on our way out of town. Over the cour…

Cold and Rainy

It's been cold and rainy here.  I love the tires in the rain.  They grip really well.  The drive always feels tight and I've never felt them lose grip in the rain.  They feel really solid. I'm also h…

What Happened To El Nino?!

Snow, snow snow.  And COLD!!  The weather has been a bit crazy.  We've had snow, ice, rain and cold all week.  I've come to trust my WRG3's in any condition.  We drove in it all. If they slip in the sn…

Rain

We had a lot of rain a couple days ago and I had good intentions of putting up this post then, but, better late than never right?!  It rained pretty hard all day.  We had some appointments to keep, so…

Wet Roads

Well, we didn't have a white christmas, but we didn't have a wet one either.  I confess to being happy about not having a white Christmas.  Never thought I'd say that. Growing up in the south, I always…

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Beautiful!

After that crazy snow storm we had a couple weeks ago, the temperatures went back up and everything melted.  I was afraid it would all ice over again-and a little excited to test my WRG3's on the icy p…

Snow!!

It's finally here!  It was a beautiful snow.  Thick and wet-the perfect kind for a snowman.  But, also, the perfect kind for slippery road conditions.  We went out to run a few errands during the snow…

Anticipation

We're supposed to get 3-6 inches of a rain/snow mixture this weekend.  The kids are excited.  I think my tires are excited too!  They've been a bit bored with the beautiful weather we've had the last c…

All is Well

We're rolling along another week in our WRG3's.  The Fall weather is definitely progressing and we've had some wet weather this week.  The tires seem to stand up well to rain and puddles, but again, we…

Ready to Roll

We got our new tires in a few weeks ago-and not a moment too soon, I might add!  Nokian WR G3.  We wanted all weather tires this time around because I gotta be honest, I'm terrible at changing them out…
