First time in the snow with the crown vic

today I took the crown vic out in the snow, and well... it was fun
earlier this year I put on p225 60 r16's on it with about 1/4 tread left, and in the snow they float on top and slide everywhere, but of course I was trying to slide everywhere.

suppose I could have chose thinner tires for the winter but what are ya gonna do, guess Ill have to drive my buick on snowy days

Re: First time in the snow with the crown vic

I put air shocks in the back and fill them up, helps allot. I also have nice Kelly Chargers but I just bought some agressive snow tires on another set of rims I got. So far I have 3 sets of tires for my Crown Vic. Summer/Spring/Fall (Kelly Charger 215-70-R15), Winter (Blizzak 225-65-R15 front and 235-65-R15 rear), and Dragster (Micky 185-55-R14 front and 240-55-R14 rear all low profile, almost scraps pavement). I have 5 sets for the Rancheros, and about 4 sets for the mudder Broncos, and 1 set for the 3/4 ton truck, and 1 set for the dump truck. Then I get into the other catagory :) ATVs, bikes, rocket car, and Crownco Custom :)

I have Hankook snows on my 94 lx and have no problems. I think the traction control helps.
