    Guys, winter tires are designed to be used from 50 degrees on down. You're not going to wear them out by driving them on warmer roads. At this point, I'd definitely have my winters on in CO through March or April.

    well the subbie missed first snow this year. Fuel pump should be here today and im hoping that was my problem, i'll know soon enough. On a positive note, its hard to be upset about not being able to drive my WRX today considering it still has bald summer tires on and my backup is a supercharged V8 trailblazer with heated leather seats

    Looks like the fuel pump was the issue. My old one was so far gone that the car wouldnt even start this morning and when i unhooked the fuel lines from the pump not an ounce of fuel came out. New pump is in and the car feels better than it has in months. I forgot how fast it was

    Nice... it's good to have something simple be an issue for a change.

    T. Jones I would take my snows off so I don't have to hear the stupid things howl down the road. I'm not worried about the wear that much - Blizzaks just suck for noise.

    You just need to use the engine noise to drown them out.....

    Well crap. The trade deal on my rail is going nowhere, I figured I would have a rally play soobie by now. No 400+hp mods on the 10 until I have another car for snow.

    I think you should only deal with the dealership during the warranty period. It's cheaper... and the dealership wont warranty some transmission shop.

    To buy or not to buy, that is the question.....

    $2000 for a set of winter tires and rims for the 911 or only drive it on dry road days. Hmmmmm....... I missed out on a set somebody else was selling here in Denver for $1000 last month. Doh!

    Personally i think that car belongs in the dry, especially with the G Wagon as a back up. But im also a believer in driving a car and not just letting it sit in the garage so i say if your confident that you will actually drive it a good amount in the snow and feel confident it can handle it safely go for it. If not, save the money and drive the other car

    Do you want to risk it? I'd say with such a capable winter car in the driveway keep the winter off the 911. Winter brings rust and just because you have snow tires it won't stop the minivan from parking itself in your engine bay at the stoplight because they slid.

    Park the 911 so you don't collect Mag Chloride on it.
    That crap eats all soft metals like a teen on pizza. I'm on wiring harness #3 for the back end of my truck.

    Well, winter is here, yet its pretty warm today. But already got me a set of sumitomo all-seasons for the next couple years. Lets see if they do well for the winter, the last set on my previous daily driver did pretty well.
