Hey Scotty!

Winter is a total crapshoot here in PA...we could get tons of snow/ice or none at all. My car is RWD so I wanna make sure it's ready just in case. My car-enthusiast uncle tells me I should buy 2 cheap extra wheels and put winter tires on them, then swap them out with my rear wheels for the winter. Want to get a mechanic's opinion though.Would this be a good idea or should I just put on 4 winter tires to be safe?

On that note, what tire brands would you most recommend ( or more importantly which brands should I avoid)?

his idea is good, we did that all the time in niagara falls when I was growing up. Avoid cheap chinese made tires, most other brands are fine
