It was last Sunday for me. Got em on and had NO problem blasting through plow drifts on super slick black top with an empty tank of gas. Not too bad for a supercharged RWD car.

Just ordered 16" steelies and General Altimax Arctic tires for the Focus. Excited to have proper winter tires but looks like I'll have to rock the RE71Rs till Tuesday.

My 4wd in my suzuki grand vitara might be messed up. Almost died twice on Sunday going to work. First the stupid abs wouldn't let me stop so i almost rear ended someone. Then going around a long curve a little fast it decided to pull towards the embankment. Lastly, around another less sharp curve still driving the speed limit 45-55 area, it decided to lose all control and shoot left from the far 4th lane towards 3 oncoming cars and 1 semi in the back. Just got it corrected in time luckily not over corrected. Phew.. might be the wheel bearing that's making noise too making the brake light come in during hard corning. I guess i need to check all that out asap. LoL

I just had to move the TransAm today. On the NT05's.


Sketchy as fuck.

Also, posted a video in the RS thread of an RS in some really nasty stuff. Was faster on the rally course in Drift Mode.

I think NOW is summer tire time. Except its raining, and I don't want to go out there and sit in the rain with changing from winter to summer.

And next weekend looks to be the same.

So I'll have to get it done during one of the drier weekdays.

Can't wait to get these winter tires off, but it needs to stay above 50 degrees.

Default Whens winter tire time?

Summer tire mode Engaged!

Although. FUCK!! The socket slipped on on rim and marred the lug socket.

I need to buy a non marring socket.
