    Winter tires fro sure. Blizzaks lm-25's, love em, on dry they are not too bad as well.

    I had a post a couple weeks ago titles 'help! slid into a curb', that's before I puton the blizzaks and had no traction down an icy hill, $1000 later....

    ah okay. I'm still looking into a winter package, we don't get a LOT of snow here in NJ and what we do get doesn't stick around for long, but I don't want to take any chances. I'm taking a trip to Syracuse NY for new years so I'll see how the stockers are in snow ...

    How long have you lived in NJ, cause you say that it doesnt snow there much and what is there doesnt stay long. You must be from down south, cause up north snow is a plenty and depending on the temp the few days after it can stick around for some time. Vernon Valley area, there is a reason they have Ski Resorts there. In fact there are two within 5 miles from each other. Well it really doesnt matter what kind of tire you have in the snow it actually depends more on the driver and the vehicle. Subaru's AWD helps out 100% but anyone can lose it if they dont know what they are doing in the snow, to fast, to much brakes, to much counter stear (spelling) but good luck with your trip. It takes some getting used to. Have a safe trip, and a great new years.

    I'm from central - middlesex county. I'm with you 100% on the snow thing, if I drive 20 minutes up the parkway there is snow on the ground just about all the time in the winter. It's off the roads in a day around here for the most part!

    I've spent many many ski trips up at Mtn Creek

    gonna have to disagree with you there, the right tires in the snow can be hugely important. Maybe not so much if everything is relatively flat, but out here in Utah we have some pretty good hills. My problem was the stocks were doing fine with the AWD, so I lazed about putting on the snow tires, but the stocks were useless when I found myself going down a short steep curve with ice and a half inch of snow on top, the stocks had zero traction. It was a slow speed slide, ABS was useless in that situation. After I put on the winter tires, it was like a whole different car. I am not a fan of studs, but I love me some blizzaks
