    Cool, I'll count myself in. Any decision on route and time yet? I'm willing to drive any distance really, just want to get out...

    I'd be careful going up in the mountains in CO with all seasons. They'll work fine in the flatlands of the Denver area, but in the mountains they're not going to cut it!

    I haven't had in problems and I don't live in the flatlands of Denver area. I've taken my car offroad on snow covered dirt roads and it handled great.

    Doesn't matter where I am, it's the snow that's the issue

    Why is snow an issue?

    It was a smart-ass response - my all seasons have been great on clear/lightly covered roads, but if it's really coming down all seasons aren't going to cut it.

    The first day I started my pizza delivery job we had a crazy snow storm and my all seasons were excellent. You get a bit more stopping force with snow tires but I've gotten around that with downshifting to slow me down.

    Noted, and definitely something I considered when going with all seasons. I figured I could use chains if I was going to the mountains and in the front range I really didn't need it.

    Off topic, but I figured here was a good a place as any. I'm thinking of going stage 1 with RomRaider or AP or the like. I read that whole thread that got a little snarky (What wont void Warranty? Accesport Stage 1?) and a number of others on NASIOC and here. Bottom line, I understand that although a stage 1 tune is potentially safer for my car than stock, I could still be denied warranty claims. Does anyone know of a tuner-friendly dealership around here? I'm near Denver and I would much rather admit to having a stage 1 tuned car (otherwise stock) when dealing with warranty issues than play the whole "does my ECU have a counter and can I trick the dealership" game. Therefore, I just want to know what people's experiences are with Denver area dealers and warranty claims on (lightly) tuned vehicles. Just trying to understand my risk-profile so I can make an educated decision on whether to wait another 59332 miles before modding my car in any (mechanical, electrical) way.
