Pointless law really, they would be better served on mandating tire tread depth.
They do as well, the ex-boyfriend of my daughter got a ticket last winter for that

Also about the Duratrac, they have the snowflake symbol, and still allowed here in Quebec for this winter, but I heard that they won't be aloud next year, they don't have the right rubber composition.

Also the remark about studs, the studs are effective on ice when the temperature is around freezing point, colder than this, studless tires like Michelin X-Ice, Blizzaks, ... become more effective.

I remember reading a few years ago that the year they implemented/enforced it, nobody could find snowflake tires in stores and people were having them stolen off their cars. Is any of that still the case?
Yes we need to have the snow flake on tires between Dec 15-march 15 except for trucks but that will change next year too. They will also have to have snowflake on the tires too.

If you decide on the Duratracs, I found out from a very "driven to succeed" salesman at Sears that they will beat any price you can find. I ended up buying mine from them for a better price than anywhere else. I don't think they readily advertise the policy but I would ask them to beat the best price you can find before you buy elsewhere.

They didn't stock them but they were happy to order them and had them in less than a week.
