Default Winter tire anytime?

I have my Nox since almost a year now. I have done 22 000km this year with it, considering that the 2 first months I've done 10 000 km with it before moving. I've splitted the other 12 000 km in 10 months.

In Quebec we have a law for winter tires on the car December 15 to March 15. With the millage I do, I'm thinking of putting a mud an snow tire all year long. Will be around 550$ for a set every 2 years instead of 1200$ for summer/winter tires every 3 years.

What you guys think about that ?

I think that I would use the mud/snow tire if I was in your shoes but man that is going to change your ride quality for sure!

Yes I know. But daily, I use the truck for 10 km maximum. This weekend I went to Ottawa, with all the stuff and the family visit it was a 800km drive, but I don't do them very often. That's why I'm thinking about the mud and snow.

I will see in the future, but I'm thinking of that considering that I will have to buy a second set of wheels if I keep the summer/winter tires process.

I know most people wait till they get a good deal on some cheap OE wheels and then put the winter tires on for winter and brake out the summer tires when there is no snow.

For the tire change, I have a guy who does it in his own garage, 25$ for the tire install, cheap as f*** haha.

I'm looking for good use 16'' wheels, like I have now on the truck. Really don't know yet what I will do, I think I will see with the company bonus lol

Yeah it has been a while since I have gotten a bonus. It went from 4 digits one year, to 3 digits, mid 3 digits and the last one was low 3 digits...
