I've gone through Salt Lake City winters for years without snow tires. NOT the best choice. Let's see... best story spinning donuts, not being able to stop (never got stuck), or just difficulty turning?
Now, I've spent dollars to get this XT to Stage 2... I wonder if it's squirrelier in the snow?Only one way to find out, but I opted to be proactive! He'll, I'm driving home from Montana tomorrow, turning around and driving to Colorado. As soon as conditions my new Blizzaks are going on. Don't "barrel down hills" on snowy roads. Take your time, use your gears. That "extra margin of safety" won't save you! Why is it always SUV I see flipped over like turtles on Utah hiways in snowy weather? The reason is not stock tires or Blizzaks! It must be that high center of gravity... or driving too fast!
