In Northeast Ohio we are supposed to get snow Sunday...70 the rest of the week. I'll sadly be removing my coilovers and putting in stock suspension and wheels for the cold months.

Happy to be skiing soon though.

Thank you! It's currently on H&R coilovers, little stiff but I'm used to it. Those wheels are SVT's with a Goodyear Eagle F1 all seasons. Pretty good grip. My stock/winter wheels are funny enough Pirelli p4 all seasons. A++ tire as well. They really in my opinion make great winter and all seasons. It handles great in the snow as do yours I bet.

I have the p4 all seasons and have some gripes with them

edit.:
> Dry traction is okay at best,
> Wet traction is decent when turning in. stops moderatly okay in the wet but has superior hydroplane resistance
>not tested in snow
>to easy to break loose when pushing the corner hard
> am not buying again

Really? I'll have to look up some other sets, I never really had issues. But then again I don't really have anything to compare it to besides my other set, maybe I'll switch wheels one day to compare on a snowy day.

I have X-Ice Xi3's for the Winter, but last week I swapped to the Conti DWS All-Seasons. And I'm not swapping back until November or December.
