I think they are less efficient on dry roads, i.e mpg.
I sensed it might be something like that. Thanks!
They also wear out much faster on warm roads, turning to mush in no time (figuratively speaking). I believe they actually become detrimental to proper road handling and hence, dangerous to a point, but I'm just talking through my hat now.
And I totally understand and agree with the lack of equipment for snow clearing where snow is only but rare. What a waste that would be. Here, it's a huge deal and industry of course, but that's necessary, believe me.
We REALLY enjoy our summers around here.
