Default official it's going to snow thread.

I used to worry about plowing through deep snow in the Camaro... less so in the Mustang since it had several inches more clearance and doesnít take in air under the car. Now with the truck I just 4H and drive it through everything. Lol.

This year I decided not to put the winter tires/wheels on my Accord. Most of the time, and that's literally like 99.4% of the time, the snow is gone before you drive on the roads anyways, BUT there are days like today where I had to drive in the snow. My all season tires were just fine. Could I have driven faster with winter tires? Fuck yeah I could have, I could have driven faster with fuckin' drag slicks, but unfortunately, you can only go as fast as all the idiots in front of you. So, I ask, wtf is the point of buying snow/winter tires if you're only going 30mph with tires that are plenty capable of handling all conditions within reason?

Just plowed the drive way. No plows in the neighborhoods that I can see. Went and did by the mail box and we are approaching 3-5 inches in the street right now.

Bring on more! Donít stop until 10

My usual 20-25 min drive took 45 min. Other than one idiot with bald tires stuck on a light inclined road and the usual idiots that drive down the middle of the road it was drama free.

and can you imagine a long bed crew raptor? how awesome that'd be in the snow.

best thing about my truck in the snow is since it's a schoolbus in length, once the ass starts to come around, you've known it was about to for about 30 seconds

That right there is the reason for snow tires. lol

Getting up to speed on all seasons isn't bad. But braking and maneuvering is another story. There is no excuse to say snow tires are not worth it other than cost. And I get it. I decided to try my car this year with all season tires to save the money. With as little snow as we have had by us, it hasn't been bad at all.



Then I look at the asshat in a stanced car driving to work this morning. Not only was he plowing snow with his front bumper, but he sideswiped three cars coming up to a stop light. Before hitting the car in front of him.

Followed a plow into work doing 20 mph as he was dumping democrat levels of salt all over the road. Took 20 minutes to go 4.5 miles. For fucks sakes.
