Re: 8,000 Mile update
Good to hear about all the 'no problem' owners. I can say the same. Five weeks and almost 3,000 miles without a single quality problem.
Even the 18" Latitudes have been OK in snow, either at highway speeds or up to 7 inches deep in open fields and trails. Enough to get me through this first winter anyway.
It is so quiet on the highway, every drive is relaxing like some kind of therapy session.
