Road trip from Bay Area (Nor Cal) to Whistler
I'm hoping some of you can give me some advice on tires I should purchase prior to my road trip and winter use of my car.
I'm planning on taking a winter drive from the bay area up to Vancouver, then onto Whistler and Kelowna and then back to SF.
I've only recently moved from Australia to the USA, so I can't say I have any familiarity with winter road driving conditions in the northern hemisphere.
Seeing as I need new tires now for my stock 18inch rims, what tires should I consider?
Do I get full winter tires or something else (if something else, what is it)?
The plan is to visit the ski fields at Whistler and Big White over 2 weeks. Then drive back to SF and use the car for weekend trips from SF to Tahoe for the rest of winter.
For summer I plan on getting some new rims with tires then, so ultimately what tires I buy now would hopefully be ok for winter driving in the bay area also.
For summer I plan to take those rims off and get new rims with new tires for summer.
Car is a e90 M3 sedan.
