I brought my SS home almost 3 weeks ago when a snow storm hit that was supposed to miss us. I made a turn down a snow covered hill and saw two cars at the bottom, one in each ditch on the left and right side of the road. Let my foot off the gas, didn't brake, and it stared to slide to the right. Steered out of the slide and it started to slide toward the other side of the road. Decided to hit the brakes and let the anti-lock take over. Almost instantly the car sensed I wasn't going in the direction I was steering and straightened the car so I was pointing right down the road. Held the brakes until it was able to stop. Absolutely fricking awesome.

Right now my baby is at the dealership having the ground effects installed and the ding removed from some a-hole dump truck driver who turned on his salt spreader when he saw me driving up. Haters suck.

Summer tires in the snow? Sure does make the cost of winter tires seem a lot less after seeing your damage bill!

Seriously though, I take my car out on the days it is real bad. The Camry will get stuck easier with the all season tires. The Camaro can just bust right through it.

Exactly, I pulled my car out of the garage so my brother could pull his car in to work on it. The drive way was all ice and sloped toward the road. It pulled out fine, but I couldn't even get up he drive, with or without the traction control on. The tires just spun like crazy. I had to chip a path in the ice to get it up the drive.
Back Street Performance has done a great job with ALL my Performance & Suspension mods, highly recommend them (Rich@BSP) he's in my friends list.

Continental DWS rule

These all season tires work so well, Im selling the P Zeros. The 2SS/RS is a nicely balanced machine with little fish-tail action, even in heavy non plowed/salted roads.

Sorry, I was forced to drive in just an inch or two of snow earlier this year. And it handled like $#!T! Blocked 2 intersections and had to get a push when I lost momentum. By far the worst car I've ever driven in (even a little) snow.
