Would I drive MY Camaro in snow? Nope. That's what I have a DD for.

Is the Camaro a capable vehicle in the snow? Most definately when equipped with proper tires.

If you are driving in the snow with the stock RS P-Zeroes, you are asking for an accident or a 'Aww man I wrecked my Camaro" thread. It was proven time and again in last winter's threads.

You are spending good money on a vehicle. Spend the extra money on some actual winter tires and save yourself the headaches.

One says over steer (ass end coming around), another says lifted front end will lose traction in front, causing under steer (pushing straight ahead). Which is it?

Driving slower will solve all traction problems.

Tube Steak

I was just about to post how much tube steak, but I re-read the thread and noticed it was sand not steak.

I have driven my RS in the snow. We dont get much, but I have not had any problems whatsoever driving with the RS 20 inch Pirellis.

Well you want me to go out and measure it ? That's the thinking of the designer for the CTS coupe, he used the exact same terminology, he doesn't like "wheel gaps less than 2 1/2 fingers width"(in his very own words he stated this).

Well it helps tremendously in my car, after I left the car wash and got the tires dried, I put it in first and stomped on it for a second, it just hooked up immediately(30 seconds after leaving car wash nonetheless), where I normally get wheel spin. Winter storms on monday, so might as well leave them be(had them out for a while). I can feel the weight when braking though, but the rear seldom kicks out now, feels more stable when cornering...
