    Snow setups

    Wondering when people are going to toss on their snow setup for the winter. Due to the cold weather we've got here recently I think I'm tossing the silver BBS's on this weekend. The last thing I want to do is get caught in the snow/slush with the re070's.

    I've also noticed they are starting to ride VERY hard and corner VERY badly in the mornings (I'm on the road by 5 most morning so temps are still close to low 30's).

    Winter setup is silver BBS's with some unknown Conti's snow tires. Snow tires have probaly one more year left before I take them off and then I'll problay toss on the same tire or maybe try some LM-25's depending on pricing.

    I might also try to pick up some RA mudflaps for her as well.

    I honestly thought they would be an easy sell.


    Can you look into any car company that offer that size OEM and see if someone would be interested?

    Not to Hi-jack my own thread but how do the North Eastern people like those m3's?

    I looked at prices again last night and I'll probaly snag the conti's in the spring if they go on sale for next winter unless the LM's are a bit cheaper.

    How are they in the dry through? We spend most of our time here in cold weather with a few snow events.

    Craig, they are perfect for the weather around here. The dry grip is outstanding. They are basically an extremely good A/S tire with great snow grip. My only complaint with them is the ice performance, but again we rarely get continued cold temps to get much ice around here.

    Seriously, I love them.
