Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

I've learned from years of offroading, speed is not your friend. Momentum wll write checks that your drivetrain can't cash. Forgive me the 80ies movie reference.

Seriously, 4low and easy on the stupid pedal will almost always let you back out of whatever you get into, add momentum (speed) and by the time your stuck your not getting out the way you came in.

Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

Holy Shyt bro. That is a lot of snow. Here in Houston, TX we get a little snow flury and ice and everything shuts down. I was up late last night hoping to see snow, I woke up like a kid on christmas hoping to see white. But instead I see ice.

I originally planned to replace the OEM tires (Forteras) with winter rated tires. I was very happy the way it performed in deep snow and I plan to keep the tires.

I didn't mean replace them, just get a second set of rims for the winter tires. Winter tires are also better in temps under 45 degrees too. Something to do with the rubber compound used in them.
