Default Thank you Weather Drive mode ?

I decided to give my AS/3+ Tire a trial tonight. The outcome is very slippery but i managed to get home safely.

Excellent! What part of the country are you in?

You are braver than me! I just got the A/S 3+ tires myself, but think I will limit them to the wet but thawed roads we have so often in NW Oregon.

Good that you made it home. I haven't taken my car out in winter weather at this point but nice to know the Weather mode works well, especially with A/S tires.

Putting about 150 lbs of sand or salt bags in the rear cargo over the rear wheels will make a significant difference in slippery conditions.

I'm pretty sure you're destined for Corvette Hell...

They really don’t do too bad in the snow but few will ever find that out.

Alpin PA4s without a doubt. Drives like it's on dry pavement. I didnt believe it till I witnessed the performance first hand.
