Winter happens here, but it isn't exactly Fargo. For the most part, it stays above zero.

You don't need snow tires, just tires with some tread. Driving on bald tires in ice is a good way to land in a ditch somewhere. Even if this ends up a mild El Nino winter, expect plenty of moisture like we've had the last few days, and the big accumulating snows happen when it's right at or just below freezing. Below 20, snow is powder and doesn't accumulate as much. Probably never saw more than six inches on the ground last year, and we would warm up to above freezing every so often to melt it off.

Thank you..

Could anyone please explain the car registration process. Some states need the car inspection receipt but some states don't need it. I need to register car and transfer DL.
Please advise

Ohio doesn't need a smog check like California (for example), just title.

ODPS | BMV | Vehicle Registration

Please advise
1) Get an Ohio driver's license at the registration office... get your picture taken, etc.
2) Take your out of state title to the title bureau (each county has a couple different locations). They'll issue a new Ohio title in your name, the fee is a few bucks, maybe $15. You'll need the Ohio DL for this.
3) Take the Ohio title back over to the registration office, where you can get plates and registration. There's an inspection, but it's just to verify that the VIN number on the car matches that of the title. Registration is $55-ish.

If you're lucky, some locations will have both the title bureau and registration people in the same building... sometimes right next door or across the hall from each other.

From Highway 35 it's a straight shot to Beavercreek, and what you seek is there. Beavercreek also has a lot of people who work at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base not far away. 35 also doesn't bottleneck as much as I-70 does, a lot of which has to do with construction that should be wrapping up soon. It's been torn up the whole time I've been here.
That's because Midwestern cities are small. If you want suburban sprawl try Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Detroit. Chicago suburban sprawl is the closest thing you'll find to say, Virginia, Georgia, DC or Maryland. Most Midwest cities are well under 100 square miles.

Yeah I remember that from the early 2000s. No emissions check anymore? Interesting.

Certain counties - Cuyahoga and Summit off the top of my head - still have echeck. Nothing anywhere near southwestern Ohio, though.

If you lump the growing development (or mess depending on your POV) between Cincinnati and Dayton, you get plenty of that sprawl nature. It slowed during the recession, but has only picked back up since the recovery gained some legs. Really thinking about it, you could drive I-75 from Walton, KY all the way to Troy, OH and see non-stop development now. That alone is a nearly 100 mile drive.

Still nothing compared to Chicago or NOVA/DC/MD or Atlanta.

Radial tires killed those off but I had a set of those klunky bias-ply snow tires on my 1978 Plymouth Fury, the road noise was unreal.
