Now is a good time to double down on a Prius or Hybrid. You will get a screaming deal and when the Saudis are done bankrupting the frackers and gas is back at $4 you'll be ready. I give cheap gas 6-12 months

We install battery tenders on all our trucks (400+ to date) so that when the truck is plugged in for cold temp starts, the batteries get a trickle charge, block heater is active and so is the oil pan heater.

I had a previous generation Weathermaster in tiny 175/70/13. They did fine. Can't comment on if they kept up with current tech. I'd survey parking lots around you to get some ideas of local popularity.
