Just bought a t stat housing $110
Control arms and ball joints $125

Still NEED

Two tires for winter. $300 ish.

If you guys wanna chip in I'll install them yesterday. Like I keep saying I'm in no rush. Hell the new wheels will only be on car for a month. Then put away. Don't care

Blake stores his car in winter. Rob plowed snow plenty of times. Makes car wasn't slammed all winter. Mike wasn't slammed.

All those points invalid.

You also forget that when i go to work at 4 am, NOTHING has been plowed. I plowed my way to work every time it snowed at my current height

I found half of the $300.





the whole day you wont waste swapping those parts over and could instead do a few side jobs should net you another easy $150.

Bullshit, we only got like 10" of snow last year.

I plowed snow twice last year in the BMW and was lower than you.

and I also get to work before the roads get plowed.

I work opposite Henderson glass/crows nest/canton computers at Quicklane on canton center rd.
The rear question is...how the hell do you squeeze a tire?!!?

PS: This winter better have some massive storms. I don't have winter tires for no reason - I expect to put them to some abuse.
