well it took the firs snow here in western pennsylvania for me to learn my lesson on the importance of winter tires. This is my brand new 2013 wrx with stock tires (summer performance tires). I parked it in front of my garage when it started snowing. Maybe an inch or two had fallen. About an hour and a half later i opened my garage to take some garbage out and as you can see, my car is no longer in front of the garage, but slid down and off the driveway and into the grass that is known as my front yard.
I know what youre thinking, and yes, the parking brake was on. if it wasnt it wouldve either rolled away before i got out of it or it wouldve kept going down the hill and into the river that is just out of sight. i learned my lesson and will be investing in winter tires immediately. take it from me; BUY WINTER TIRES FOR YOUR WRX! (if you havent already)
