Soooooo glad I got the new tires a few weeks ago. Looking outside I was starting to get very nervous when that dusting was on the ground. The Kumhos did a great job getting me home tonight!

Stocker 16s are actually pretty decent in the snow from what I've heard - I had the 17" RSAs with 26,000 miles on them!! They were scary in the snow when they were brand new.... I nearly crapped myself driving to work with a dusting a couple months ago. Within a week I had the new tires. ;)

Yeah I have almost 26,000 on these. I think I can get by until Summer. The plan was to get aftermarket ones and save the 16's for winter, lil late now :lol:

Yea, yesterday was fun, im glad my recently puchased 3 has no abs, cause i got used to driving my miata with no abs. The only problem is that my truck and miata are RWD and im used to beig able to hang the tail out..

i gots the stock 17" RSAs that have maybe 1/8'' left on them

Im holding out to get some nice tires for the warmer wether, then will prob invest in a set of winter rims/tires for next winter.

I'll let you know how it goes for me... mine's getting a new clutch put into it (covered under warrenty by Mazda, somehow, for those who care) and I have a rental. Ford Edge... it's a Mazda 6 with a big body, a lift kit, a 265 HP 3.5L, and AWD. Not bad. It really didn't have much trouble this morning on the Schuylkill Expwy or PA Tpk. Woo!

lol....I got stuck in my driveway too during the last storm. It was completley locked to the ground by ice, at one point I was in 3rd going 65mph according to the speedo; but not moving at all :shock: Sure was fun though, until the tires started smoking :lol: This week not as bad as I thoughts, this snow was wet but not icey.

I ran into the same situation the first day of snow... a week after I got my car. Bent the tie road, scratched the bumper, had to replace wheel.
NOT FUN AT ALL.

After that I learned my lesson... bought a set of blizzak revo. Now I'm laughing my ass off at those FWD stucked in snow. :lol:
