    Softer rubber remains flexible at lower temperatures than that in all-season tires, don’t think winter tires get more flexible as the temperature falls.

      Agreed. It was in relation to that of all-season tires which become hard like a rock when temperatures fall. Whereas winter tires remain flexible. It was the way I worded the sentence. Thanks for bringing it up.

      Actually yes they do…and remain flexible and gripping to -40 and below.

    Your comments on winter tires are NOT strong enough. They should be mandatory as they are around the world. All season tires are a misnomer caused by a ’80s tire promotion. How the tire industry is still allowed to use the terminology is scandalous. They are 3 season tires only! Between -10°C and -14°C (+7°F to +14°F) they become exactly the equal of hockey pucks. That is scary and fatal to hundreds of people every year.

    Hi Scott, awesome post!! Regarding your last line about not forgetting to breathe, I actually did a post on this very topic on my own Driving in the Real World blog a few years ago. It was about singing while driving in bad winter conditions. Would love to hear what you think, either way: http://www.drivingintherealworld.com/journal/2012/1/5/singing-on-the-ice.html
