size down one

 

they look pretty perfect right now, but they will not stay that way

I would size down one assuming thighs still fit.

These pants would look better with tapered leg opening.

I'm a firm believer that if you learn how to drive properly, you can put snow tires on pretty much anything and that's enough.

 

One year they closed 80 but we were determined to get to Tahoe City anyway. We did. We had gone as far as Colfax and had to turn around. But undeterred, we headed towards Grass Valley and took "Yuba Pass" the long way around in the middle of a true blizzard. At times the snow was 2-3 feet deep on either side of us and visibility was no more than 10 feet in front of us. We were plowing our way through, judging where the road was by the houses on the side. Granted, we had a Subaru WRX on that trip, but I think the Fiat would have made it too. It just needs some snow tires.

my other car is AWD (2008 VW R32)

Warning: OT discussion RE: snowtires (Click to show)

 

SVB,

I loved the video...made me long for winter after the mild season we just had. I agree completely. I've always liked having one AWD/4WD vehicle in our household and have recommended that to friends & colleagues who asked. However, I always followed it up with the recommendation that proper snow tires (on your 2WD or your AWD) vehicle are a must...especially if your luxury sports sedan or AWD sport hatch or wagon has performance tires.

 

I had (and loved) an AWD Infinity FX35 that was fun to drive, got me to work and back and gave me just enough room for family, dog and stuff for summer and winter adventures. At the time of purchase I bought a used set of OEM wheels (guys love upgrading wheels so OEM wheels can be found very cheap) and snow tires. It was amazing and perfectly suited to the worst winter in New England in 30 yrs.

 

I agree that a 2WD vehicle with appropriate tires will beat a 4WD vehicle with all-season performance tires in the snow any day of the week. However, I think the best package is an AWD with snows!! Your R32 must be a joy with a set of Blizzaks or Dunlop Wintersports.

 

 

 

Off snowtire soap box, back to regularly scheduled discussion.
