I use the flatstoppers as well. I spun the tires once too. But there is a little trick to using then you have to line them up against the tires and back up about 18" and then go foward just fast enough to get up and over.

...what's up with the bag and store stuff, it ain't a boat in the backyard for cryin' out loud.....to each his own. I'll drive mine if it's above 40 degrees in the winter, with dry and clear road conditions whenever I get some free time to do so.

This is exactly what I plan to do this winter except I won't have to wait for temps to get above 40. Just had my winter wheels put on today.

Here's the thread I posted when I bought everything back in August.

Man, you can't appreciate how hard the Goodyears get when it's cold until you put on a tire specifically made for cold weather.

Man I couldn't imagine the pain of having to put my Camaro away for 6 months at a time. Where I'm from cold weather is a dip in the 50's.

Yes. It's a decent indoor cover.

I like the cover, I have the same one.

Anyway I had to put my car into storage about 4 months ago due to a move.

Itís tough not being able to drive the car but I know itís only temporary. The only good thing at least I am able to visit the car and itís in a heated storage space.

What size capsule do you have, and is it the size you recommend to others?
