    Agreed. I'd put snow tires on that thing and drive the shit out of it.

    If any of you guys are looking for great a/s tires, I can't praise the Pilot Sport A/S 3's enough. At least in W and Y speeds. Summer tire grip levels and they're damn good in snow and ice. Shit, I still can't believe I wasn't sliding around everywhere...

    +1. I've been really impressed with Michelin's Pilot Sport A/S tires. For a small-timer that doesn't swap wheels and tires for different seasons, I'm happy to find a tire that offers winter A/S capabilities while compromising very little in the way of street summer tire performance.

    I've heard great reviews about these tires but it all depends on the car as well. Which car do you have these on?

    I have a 3-series rear-wheel drive..........my Conti DWS are pretty good, but I will be looking for a replacement in the spring.

    You will incur his rage. You're supposed to have an Audi if you live somewhere where it snows. Preferably on summer tires - because Audi

    Conti all-seasons on the Audi I bought last Spring. Can't say they've impressed me in our snow/ice so far. Had two sets of Conti's on the old Passat. First set had great winter handling but were very noisy in the summer.

    Fixed

    :laugh:

    Serious now. I'm coming around on the new Mustang. At first glance the modern front end had me sadface but I'm loving the fastback proportions and new muscular shoulders.

    Finally with IRS :laugh:

    I like the outgoing one more because it's more retro, but could not bring myself to love it because the drive was meh. Hopefully Ford has improved on that.

    INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSIONNNNN!!!!!!!!

    Also, there's a Motortrend web video series where they bought an old 1993 Nissan 240SX off craigslist, did a review on it, and now are going through and doing upgrades on it to make it an inexpensive fun car to drive. I'm a HUGE sucker for this as my first car was a 1989 240SX fastback 5sp.
