Same here...and I put winters on only last week. As I also live in the Ottawa area, fellow SFS owners can attest that we've had quite a bit of snow in the last 4-5 weeks...and they Contis were OK for all-seasons...and had tons 'o fun slipping and sliding in "controlled areas"I have them. And I have winters for snow. No issue's in the summer.
IMHOI've got 19000k on my contis now, and I must say, in deeper snow (Not deep enough to be pushing snow at all) they are a POS. I had to push my SF off my street yesterday in 6-7" of snow. New wheels are coming in the summer, Winters tires on the factory wheels are coming next year.
I am not implying that you have no common sense, just that there seems to be less of it around these days.I don't disagree that winter tires are better than all seasons in winter, but I certainly hope you're not implying I don't have any common sense. I have owned vehicles in areas where studded tires are permitted, areas where tire chains are mandated, and have had vehicles with winter tires and vehicles without.
I'm just curious why you excluded the 2.4 from this thread. The 2.4s come with Continental tires as well.Tires for those who have the 2.0T Does anyone who drives the Sante Fe 2.0 hate the OEM Continentals? They seem to hydroplane easily in rain and they are not that great in the snow. Might replace mine before they wear out. Any suggestions?
