Will chart-topping snowfalls mean record winter tire sales?

Winter tire shipments fell from 5.3 million units in 2012 to 4.6 million units in 2013, a 13.2% drop, according to Modern Tire Dealer statistics. The decline was sharper the prior year when winter tire shipments fell 14.5% from 2011’s 6.2 million units.
