2001 S4, so much fun in the snow!!

Its ridiculous the conditions this thing can make it throught with some decent snow tires, Quattro is amazing. Here's a short vid I made last winter.

YouTube - S4 & Coupe Quattro Snow Drift

It gets about 25 mpg highway too.

I've got a Toyota FJ Cruiser. The worse the conditions the better it performs.

I have an 07 silverado with a tuned 6.0L I'm kind of scared to take it to the snow, although i will have some 33" BFG A/T's on it, it is still only a 2wd, heavy, a shit ton of power.

BFG AT's are not so good on snow and useless on ice. You need real snow tires, especialy if you've got only 2 wheel drive.

2WD? What's the point? Then again you do live in California...

Take yourself to higher places.

I primarily use the truck for towing a trailer. I couldn't afford nor find a vortec max in 4x4 in my price range. Also are the toyo open country a/t's better for the snow or Nitto Terra Grapplers? I can't afford another set of tires. What are the best tires that are available in a 285/75/17 for snow?

What..Are you kidding??

Most of the people who plow snow hear in Michigan have BFG A/T. I had a set on my last truck and they rocked in the snow and sucked in mud.

Nice looking vehicle Kytch, what year is that, 2010? I was just on Subaru's website last night looking at the Legacy. I've heard great things about subaru's overall.
