Yeah you're not getting what I'm saying. In the middle/lower latitudes of the USA it rarely snows enough to stick to the road. Buying snow tires is a waste of money. You basically just don't even drive around these states with any snow on the road. The place shuts down. The chains would be nice to have IN CASE you need to go somewhere, or your car is stuck because you left it somewhere.
