There's snow in the forecast for tomorrow, so I put the snow tires on my son's car. If you have directional snow tires, like Michelin X-Ice, be sure to put them on the proper side of the car. There's an arrow indicating direction of rotation. Another consideration is using something like Never Seize. I apply it to the wheel/hub mating surfaces and also to the wheel studs. It's not uncommon for both of these to get rusted in place.
I appreciate that information, Jerry!! I have to look back to 1996 to remember snow tires. 25 years later, we live in a condo community (55+)with underground parking. Of course I miss the houses we occupied. In 96' we had 19 significant snow storms in NJ. So much snow, we had to shovel it way above our heads to pile it on either side of our driveway. I had to use heavy ice pick shovel to clear a path to the roadway. I was teaching in Chatham, NJ, about a 15 mile ride. We had so many snow days, we made up one day on a Saturday. The NJ Dept of Education came and monitored the day to make sure students were receiving proper instruction. They were amazed because it was "business as usual" in Chatham!!
Snow Tires??? Rotation?? No thanks! I'll watch the storm out the window.
