    Also, I can't believe how slippery it is out there!

    So much snow! And a nice layer of ice on the bottom of everything.

    Stupid.

    I have nothing bad to say about any of them.
    My mom's car runs Hankook Optima tires, she tore a coupld chunks out of the sidewall, not enough to deflate the tire, but enough it wasn't safe for a 2week trip to the mountains. My only real complaint is a it was $364/tire to replace.. it was the OEM tire on her Kia... Neededless to say I put Yoko's on her car. I can't remember the exact tire... I jsut know it's the same tire I'm darksiding on my bike right now :P

    Since moving out of the city I drive (sled?) over unplowed range roads and rarely plowed secondary highways and then the Yellowhead... when I get into the city, I have to say the roads in town are shite.

    Thankfully the I put Nokian Hakkas from my Cq on the Golf (after I realized some dick hole stole two of my spare Nokians from the back yard at my rental) and they're grabbing traction like a champ.

    Wonder how long they'll keep up with this pilot project before they scrap it in favour of traditional abatement? Or refine the process enough that it works as intended...

    I agree. The roads are terrible inside edmonton. The highways, and all the surrounding cities have way better conditions.

    Fuk that, this is what Edmonton calls sand. I'll take the ice for 3 days a year over my car looking like a rusted out dented Delorean with a smashed windshield.

    3 days a year? What city do you live in? It's winter in this dump for like 8 months. And snow or not the roads have been slippery as fuck this year.

    Buy winter tires? There have only been 2 days this winter so far where the roads are what I'd call slippery.
