Chase lives in Florida, I believe, and may not know about snow driving. That thing would be a death trap. Best snow tires are more like pizza cutters. You want them to get down through the snow and grip the underlying surface, not float on top like off road tires.

Yes, it snows in Arizona. I only have to drive two hours north in the winter. But then I can turn around and leave it again.

Don't sweat it. These do pretty well in snow, as long as you don't try it with summer-only tires.

You'll be pleasantly surprised, then. As long as the snow isn't deep enough to start building up in the front grill, you'll make it just fine. Great balance in these cars means good traction and steering in the snow,

Cover does seem to touch the tube a little but I don't see anyway to correct that.

There are some things to do and look for during installation to help the lid go on easily, we have posted them many times on this forum and if you call us for technical support we can guide you through them as well.

It only took me 10 minutes to uninstall the factory intake and install the new CAI, then another 10 minutes to get the cover attached right the first time,lol

But it settles in once you drive the car for a while, everytime I take the cover off now, it goes right into place when I put it back on, no problem..
