So last year we received a '99 Tahoe. My parents put new tires on it - the catch is that they had it done in Florida and we live in the upper Midwest with snowy winters. The tires aren't all weather and we had some slip and sliding last winter (just a couple times - usually things are plowed and salted). My husband thinks that putting weight in the back (like cinder blocks) would mitigate that. Still, he wants me to feel safe. New all-weather tires would be $300+ for all four and we'd be losing 4 perfectly good tires. We're not keen on buying snow tires and changing them each season. I think we need to change them but I can't articulate why since I'm not a tire person.

What's the best option? Money is tight but if we absolutely must change the tires we can swing it (but with having had a baby this year, there's always expenses). What would you do? Is there a way to get cheaper tires? I checked Wal-Mart and Tires Plus and all weather tires were $80/each. :S
