We had nine inches of snow last night so I had 4 Blizzak WS-50's mounted on the stock 17" wheels.

I know, I know, not exactly Groucho's Hotchkiss & Koni upgrade. But, for those of us in the snow belt Blizzaks make the GTO reasonably capable in snow and ice. You can go, stop, and turn with little difficulty. The control is great. A little wheel, a little throttle and you just slide around turns with hardly any effort and total control.

I expected a radical difference in handling with a squishy snow compound in the tires as I've noticed a big difference in other cars with Blizzaks.

Anyway, there isn't much change in the GTO. It could simply be that these Blizzaks are a lot wider than the one's I ran on my Volvo so tread squirm isn't as noticible. But it's making me wonder if the stock tires weren't that great to begin with.

I agree, it's only snowed where I live 3 times in the last 12 years and none of it was more than 2 inches. :D

Texas may be hotter the hell in the summer, but where else can you go to the track year round...

I don't know about the rest of y'all, but i would MUCH rather it is cold outside than hot. After all, you can always ADD more clothing, but you can't run around naked in the summertime when it's 100 degrees with 90% humidity. It's gonna be miserable even if you COULD.

I would have no problem whatsoever with the two chicks on your icon getting naked, no matter WHAT the weather. ;)
