Timing is everything.copracer288 said:I have 560 miles on the car. My winter tires (Continental ContiExtremeContact) came in last Thursday, the wheels (Rota Tarmac II) followed on Saturday. I had them mounted up and on the car Saturday night. On Sunday we had a snow storm and I was out playin'. It was great!
yeah, it does seem nuts, i agree. but i'm too broke to buy all-season tires and wheels. i could swap the re070s off, but then the tire monkey will probably leave big gashes in my rims. i've got a beater with all-season tires. if i don't drive it now, then when? i've driven awd in the snow lots and lots; my first car was a suby 4wd; my other car is an outback. so there's no novelty to me of driving in the snow. and there's nothing to do in the snow that requires 300hp. (think i've rationalized it enough to myself? ) the one thing i will miss is playing with the dccd, but i'll live and learn vicariously through you guys.copracer288 said:Man, what's up with that.
Yeah, I'm sure I might consider it if I had more than one car : )toyworx said:I'm not saying that driving my STi wouldn't be the most legal fun i've had in years, but for me this is the 911 that i can't afford. For me it's a pure toy. I don't need to own it. I have two other vehicles, a buick park ave (the winter beater, got it for free when they took my grandfahters license away a few years ago), and a done up CJ7 (the summer toy).
So i would prefer to keep it under 10,000 miles a year, and keep the salt off. Nothing mucks up an engine bay quicker than Connecticut roads in the winter.
