lol bet the 'winter' you see down there is a joke compared to here....and yet still people refused to put winter tires on here, but now since last year, there's a law for mandatory winter tires...finally lol. You ll be fine down there in texas. If you wanna experience some REAL, SCARY winter driving, come up here and visit me. Bring your studded set of tires though :P
