Default Re: Driving in the snow


Hi
Well, I have driven my PT in the snow and it works just great.
I have 4 Toyo 15" snow tires and it's like driving a little snowmobile. I was passing cars/vans/trucks sliding down hills backwards.
The secret is taking it easy and not rushing things.
And the other secret is using "snow tires". All season radials do not work that well in the snow. (I have a set that I swap when the weather gets nice again.)
Ask my neighbour and his Mazda Van that was parked at the bottom the hill where I live. He has a couple of small kids and I offered to to take them anywhere if there was an emergency.
