    Learned something I already knew but it's good to revisit.
    BFG Sport Comp-2's are not suitable for cold temps and amazingly useless in snow. It was amazing how useless these things are in snow and a great reminder of how incredible actual snow tires are at doing their job.
    I'm still glad I delayed putting my Blizzaks on until real winter starts but the simple task I had to do in those Summer tires was a shocking ordeal. My ABS must be tired!
    What's more incredible is that Michelin is able to make tires that work so well over such a huge variation of temperatures. The fact that our tires were useless and PSS's were drivable while delivering even better dry traction goes to show how far ahead Michelin is when it comes to tire technology.

    And it’s important to remember that nothing in the last 3 days really counted as cold temps lol
    Some tires disagree haha.

    Totally, just my point that if the last two days were an issue then that should be a reality check for people on whether they need to invest in better tires.

    Anyone know how the new salting debate was going at city hall?

    I have Toyo all weathers on my SUV and during the shit storm we had last Sunday I was driving up a hill where there were probably 5-6 cars stuck and I was weaving pass them with no issues and then I got rammed up the ass by someone who couldn't stop . Change your tires folks and keep it safe out there!

    Real winners have winter cars so they can just hop into that instead on the morning of first snowfall.
