Hey guys! So my question is, how will my car be in the snow, with dedicated snow tires?

With snow tires, you will probably do alright. I went though this last winter running the stock tires on the car and it was terrible (obviously). I lacked the funds for dedicated winter wheels, so I avoided driving in the snow, but was fortunate to have a warm winter.

You will be fine in the snow, but just remain cautious at all times. I wouldn't trade my snow tires in for the world... highly stand by them after I saw what an RWD car does with just all seasons in the snow (its a sled.)

Thanks guys I really appreciate it. Yea I had to ask, because I'll be spending some time out in Utah in the winter, and I just need to know if I'd be ok. Thanks again.

My convertible drives like a friggin' tank once I put the snows on - it'll drive through anything.

Is your snow fall heavy? And what kind of tires do you run? The pirelli's?

Blizzacks is what I use... 5 years still running strong, however the rears definitely need to get replaced by winter time. Fronts are still in good shape, surprisingly.

So do you use your tires year around? Or is it just during the winter, and they wear out?

Have run my ZHP in the winter with dedicated snows for several years - never had any issues at all. Plowed by many an all wheel drive with all seasons...
