Hi All, New to the forum - have really been enjoying reading your posts, especially during the grueling wait for our SE to arrive. We've now had our Island Blue since mid-June, and love how it drives. I've read through a bunch of the winter tire threads, and haven't found any opinions on the Vredestein Wintrac Pro, which are very highly rated on Tire Rack. So if any of you have used these on your SE, it would be great to hear your thoughts. We live in Portland and use the SE mostly for driving around the city. We also have an ICE AWD SUV for longer drives. Portland gets maybe 1 or 2 snowstorms each winter, and the city all but shuts down when this happens, as it doesnt have the equipment to clear anything but the largest arteries. there was a 10"+ storm late last winter that also wreaked havoc for a while. I'm on the fence as to get dedicated winter/snow tires (as we do on the SUV), or replace the summer tires with all seasons, and just not drive the mini when it snows. Either way here, it gets cold enough in the winter that the OEM summer tires will not work for us, if we're going to drive it at all this winter. Any thoughts from the seasoned Mini SE owners in the north? Thanks!
