The dreaded Word

Yes, Indeed...that word is *SNOW*. Here in Western NY, we get our fair share and it is not too far away. I went to walmart today and had my snow tires put on my 93 CV LX. I am using the same ones I did last year. Blizzaks( dont know the model off the top of my head - and it is too darn cold to run out and look!) What kind of snow tires do you all use? ( to those of you who do not even have to worry about them!) On patrol, our 97 PIs have Eagle's that are studded in the rear and they work great.

Just curious what everyone has on their cars and what they think of them.

Snow tires? What are those?

I haven't used snow tires in years. Going to school and all, I jsut cannot come up with the extra cash. I'll be rolling around on my half-tread All seasons. Though, if the cash does come up, Blizzaks it will be.

I have a full tank of Unleaded...

We get quite a bit of snow here in the winter, and we run our Eagle RSA's year round on all of our vehicles (about 25 CVPI's)..

I also run the RSA's on my two personal 1997 CVPI's. It should be noted that all of the vehicles have "posi" rears, and we don't use electronic traction assist.

We haven't had any real problems, but we do carry chains, just in case..

well, we get 100+ inches of snow in a 5 month period... actually, more snow than that... so great snow tires are a necessity

Here in Cleveland, specifically snow belt towns its about 75% that use Snow tires and roughly 25% that just run the all seasons.

I use GoodYear Ultra Grip Ice in the rear, they move this hunk around in the snow quite well. You dont hear too much about them, but i think they are just as good as the Blizzaks
