So as my previous posts have indicated, we have just moved to AK. I've talked to several folks over the past 6 months or so who have hinted that studded tires are a necessity here in AK in the winter. With that being said, I am wondering if this is true for all vehicles or not. I have a 08' F250 4x4 Crew Cab Diesel and will be living in the Soldotna area. Do you think I will need studded tires for my vehicle? If so, what's a reasonable price to pay? Also, when would I need to switch over to the studded tires? When would I need to switch back? I've probably ask a lot of rookie questions here but you don't know unless you ask... right.
Thanks in advance!
