Must have pics.

Just dont use them in anything warmer then 45*. snow tires are not mean to be used in anything warmer then 45 because of the super soft tread compound.

I am amazed they are as good as you say in the snow because they are really wide. Wide tires tend to suck in the snow. Glad they are working out for you though. I love to see SRT8s in the winter.

Just the other day i saw a black one with black reps and snow tires towing a white utility type box trailer in the snow.

Re: 06 SRT 8 in the Snow?

The Extreme contact DWS are NOT a winter tire, they are an all season tire Dry Wet Snow. They actually have the DWS molded into the tread so as they wear they go from snow to wet to dry only.
