Had the opportunity to be caught in a bit of snow over the weekend. (AWD)

Love how it pulls out in a straight line on a snow covered up hill.:cool:

Not all excited (yet) how it pulled out when making a Left turn from a stop. :sad:

Seemed the rear wants to catch up with the front??

Had never driven an all-wheel drive / four wheel drive before. – Most of my years spent with the old rear wheel drive or front only drive – (always ran 4 snow tires)

I had put my Chevy Sonic wheels & snow tires on last year when we took a trip in winter to DC – didn’t really hit much snow but I don’t recall any such squirrely-ness. IMG_5015.jpg


May look at snow tires / wheels more closely for the Encore next year. – Always liked how dedicated snow tires made a nice difference in stopping.

How many miles on the tires?

I just mash it let the electronics do its thing. More fun with TC and stability off. :)

Now "More Prepared" for Winter

Went for a 16" x 7.5" Wheel & 215/65R-16 WS80

Again, granted it "GOES" quite well without - but should STOP even better now.

All set now - built a tire rack in the garage to hold two sets


Thankfully, my local NTB took 18 wheels & Tires off me - no charge. (had them piling up in the basement)
Seems no one wanted 1980 Chevy citation nor 1984 Fiero Wheels & Tires..... (can you believe it) :blink:
