Hey Chuck - no worries, glad I could help. I've run snow tires now for 8 years on my current truck - took me two years and the birth of our first for me to wise up, but now I don't think I would ever go back. The softer rubber compound just makes so much sense when it comes to control and stopping ability. I would suggest buying rims for your winter tires too. Personally the tire shops wanted $20 per tire to swap twice a year, so in less than 2 years I covered the cost of rims which I can change myself. I'm waiting on my new truck right now and it'll be one of the first things I do. Cheers.
