With Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow tires, I've driven almost daily through 2 winters now. I do have an old 4x4 as back up if it gets really deep but rarely have to use it and the car is much nicer to...

I swapped mine on early in October, but we had snow here in mid October too. The snow hasn't been sticking until just lately though. I'd rather put them on a bit early and drive easy to save the...

According to the pinned winter tire thread, there are 'some' 19 inch rims that will fit over the rollerskate brakepads but many do not. I don't know for sure about the stock rims but I'd take Sir...

I've sort of resigned myself to doing this eventually, so I'd really like to hear how it turns out too.

In the mean time, I've picked up some of the GM touch up paint and I use it to seal the open...

Interesting. I'm just the opposite. If the roads are bare, dry, and warm then it's not very likely that I'll be breaking traction. If the roads are snow covered, wet, or just cold enough to maybe...

Lightweight 19" rims that clear rollerskates?

Like the title says I'm trying to figure out which, if any, lightweight 19" rims will clear the rollerskate brake pads on an SS. There are some SS cars shown on the forum here with 19" wheels but...

I've no problem revving 3k if I'm climbing a steep hill or I'm going to need the power soon. If I'm going to be 'cruising' more than 10 or 20 seconds at that speed, then I'll shift up. Downshifting...

I remember reading somewhere that the Blizzaks had a bit more tread squirm than some other winter tires, but any winter rubber will be softer than the summer tires.

I think it's a bad thing to have the brakes applied unnecessarily and having the power fade unexpectedly is annoying too. The "nannies" can't prevent the car from sliding. If someone drives...

The 40 or 45 numbers are a ratio of height to the size of the tire, not absolute heights. The stock 275/40r20 tires are the same height as the stock 245/45r20 tires. It's because the 40 is a smaller...
