Ok shit for brains, explain the cost I impose on the world by not
buying a block heater.
I'm sure you do that to others just to be an asshole, but you would
first have to find me before you could do it to me. So the ass being
ground here is yours aince you are powerless to do what you would like
to do. ;)~
And you're dreaming shit for brains.

Sumitomo T4s are rated as low rolling resistance tires and what our
local Toyota Service Centers sell as replacements for the OEM tires.
At Tire Rack, they have been one of the more affordable tires although
last week I learned they had gone from $0/tire I first paid to $6/
tire. I've been pretty happy with them in North Alabama.
Winter tires have more to do with superior winter grip and safety more
than economics. I"ve never lived far enough North to consider them a
realistic option. Most of the time, snow storms shutdown the whole
area and we all take a 'snow day.' But if I lived in areas where snow
is considered 'part of the climate,' I'd probably have a set on steel
rims and swap them in the fall and spring.

Thank you for the info. The tread looks open enough to make them a
reasonable all season tire. They say it can handle light snow.
The tires I am running are a bit more open but not much.
It would be interesting to know how much difference they give in mpg.
In this comparison of 4 tires at Tire Rack the difference between the
best and worst was 1.44% or less than 1 mpg for a 56 mpg Prius.

Usually, a post like yours is the result of someone shoving the truth up
your ass until you realize it.
