    LR or Performance for so cal ski resorts

    I go skiing every weekend during winter (Southern California). My understanding is that I need to get winter tires and need to change tires much more frequently for the performance model. Should I choose the long range model?

    Is LR worth an extra 6k?

    Just placed an order for Standard Range Plus. But with the recent price increase of SR+, Long Range costs only 6K more, instead of 8K. Should I cancel it and order LR instead?
