Oh really? So explain why I watched truck after truck after SUV slide down an ice covered Forrest service access road (hunting party leaving) while i went down it and didn't break traction once. Sorry, but your advice sucks. I have used them and I know to a ton people that use them and they are an awesome tire and do great in the winter.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

You get upset too easily bud. He's not wrong, they aren't great tires for winter and the reviews generally back that up. If they work for you, more power to you.

You are not the only one with those tires and live up on a hill. Come back when you have sheets of ice every morning just getting out of the garage on a 12 degree incline. Never mind the hilly tight streets. If you feel those are great, all the best to you. Do yourself a favor though, try Nokian Hakas or continental ice contacts back to back with these and see how "awesome" they are in comparison. I think you'd be surprised.

No you don't.


Which model year do you have?

I'll find you every single accessory you'll need to store more shit than a damn minivan and still be able to take the top of in the summer and enjoy the simple life.



** I love Jeep wranglers!! **

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Hey man love the S4! Is that estoril blue? I currently have a 2011 S5 cab but just put in an order in for a 2013 RS5 Suzuka grey/silver interior. Not sure about the facelift on the S4 but the engine and interior more than makes up for it! Anyways great car!

Thanks! Yep, Estoril Blue Crystal it is. I love how it changes color and the depth is unreal. Totally worth the upcharge. I mounted the Whispbar ski rack yesterday and I just got the car back from getting a clear bra and 35% tint tonight. I'll grab some more pics soon.

I've only seen Suzuka Gray in photos and it's awesome. A buddy recently got a Sepang RS5. That thing is killer.

Crazy...My BMW is Estoril Blue too. The depth in color is also mazing. Its no longer a color option that for BMW. To bead because it was the best color IMO>
