U can with AWD, but with FWD it's just wanna be drifting. Snow is just about done for us pretty light winter. Figures the year I spend money on kick arse snow tires it doesn't snow that much. Yeah well bring on the sun and car shows.

I am fortunate because it dosent snow very much here in the valley, just a few times through the winter and usually at night. If I had the money to buy snow tires I could drive up through the mountains and really get myself into a situation. Well, not that I dont already.

This winter, our Golf is wearin' Kumho I'Zen snow tires on all 4 corners. Snow tires can seem impractical when the roads are dry, but when it snows...snow tires=confidence.

I have Blizzak MZ-01 Directional winter tires on my stock Montreal 2s for winter, and I am glad I have them. Wouldn't get through winter any other way with this car. Eventually, I want to purchase an Audi with Quattro for this purpose...either a TT after the GTI is paid off, or maybe an old 4000S Quattro that I could swap a 2.3 20V 5 cyl into...

yeah, that was me last night. It is interesting watching people along the side of the road having trouble when you have on performance tires and are still passing through.
