Best stock of winter tires in VT!

Toyo Observe G3-Ice

The Toyo G3-Ice has quickly become one of out favorite winter tires. With the combination of an exceptional price, excellent winter performance, and class leading longevity the G3-Ice is hard to beat. If there was a down side it is that they are hard to keep in stock and when they are gone they are gone for the season, so buy early!

Cooper Evolution Winter

The Cooper Evolution Winter is a bread and butter tire for
Vermont Tire. Price for performance is the name of the
game with the Evolution Winter. This Stud able deep
snow winter tire is the spiritual successor to the legendary
Weather-Master St/2. The directional design adds better
lateral grip. Vermont Tire was part of the development and
testing of the Evolution Winter and we are proud of the result.  

Cooper Discoverer Snow Claw

The Discoverer Snow Claw replaces the long living ang much
loved Discoverer M+S. This light truck and SUV tire was designed from the ground up to move forward with current technology. Vermont Tire has thoroughly tested this tire and it proved be even to surpassing its non-Scandinavian competition without studs and studs can be added to take it to the next level. 

Nokian Nordman 7

If you want next level traction that comes from a factory installed shaped stud without breaking the bank, look no further than the Nordman 7. Available with or without studs, the Nordman 7 brings many of the refinements of its bigger brother without the price tag. Expect exceptional snow and ice performance and a quieter ride.


If you need the absolute best in winter traction look no further than the Hakkapeliitta 9. With two functional shaped stud designs in the same tire and full tread coverage, the Hakkapeliitta 9 is the pinnacle of snow and ice traction. Because of the special stud designs and tread features the Hakkapeliitta 9 remains more quiet and kinder to the road that a traditional studded tire. Nokian holds more Winter tire patents than all tire manufactures combined and this tire is the culmination of all of them. This is the only winter tire I put on my daughter and wife’s cars.

I grew up in the tire business. My parents built our company over the last 30 years. I’ve accumulated a lot of knowledge about tires and more importantly, what tires are best for certain applications. Too much time is spent focusing on price, mileage, fuel economy or other stats that don’t necessarily give the full impression of what is right for you.

A customer recently sent me an email about the service he received from Matt Morse our Montpelier location. With his permission I am reposting it here.

Mark and family,

I’m writing to let you know how much I’ve appreciated Matt Morse’s work with a problem with my tires that has been very problematic for me and that Matt’s approach and willingness to help has made all the difference.

I’ve been a customer of VT Tire and Service for years and had many of my family’s vehicles in your shop. Usually, it’s just a simple matter of purchasing great tires, having them installed and that’s it.

This one starts with my fault.  I purchased a set of tires from Simple Tire (never again!).  Another shop installed them but, after two times trying to balance the tires, they were not right.  I appealed to Matt for help and he graciously made an appointment and had the tires balanced.  Again, they were not right and after a second try with no success Matt identified that the tires were the problem and we should look into a warranty replacement.  I contacted Simple Tire (twice by e-mail and once by a return form) who finally said I should contact the manufacturer (no help at all).

I contacted Nokian who immediately contacted Matt and, together, they arranged for a replacement.  Matt made that transaction smooth as silk.  I drove away a happy man.  Yesterday I felt a shake in the steering wheel and a funny vibration.  Again, Matt said, “bring her in.”  I did and early this morning everything seems to be working as it should.

I wanted you to know that I really appreciate how Matt and all the technicians at VT Tire and Service worked hard with this difficult situation to really helped me out.  What looked like a situation where I’d save a few bucks ended in a whole lot of work and I would have saved more money had I just come to you first.  You can count on seeing me and my family’s vehicles when it’s time for new tires.

Most importantly, Matt deserves some special recognition for going above and beyond in a totally professional and ultimately helpful manner.

Thank you,


Bill ———–
