Will Montana ever get to the point where our vehicles won't need snow tires anymore?
My vehicles aren't there yet. I live on a hill and for me not only are snow tires a necessity, but I need studs on two of my vehicles that are front-wheel drives. If you are planning on traveling on Montana's roads this upcoming holiday season, please drive safe, and make sure you are safe and buckle up. In Montana it's the law.
