    Dang my tires su@k on snow.........

    ....so I figure it's an all wheel drive car, how bad can it possibly be?

    I have Yokahama A520's from the owner previous to the guy I bought it from. They have been ok on dry and wet but with quite a bit of wheel noise. Had them in about 1 inch of snow today, might as well be slicks. I will be ordering some contiextremecontacts tomorrow from tirerack.com. Never thought an AWD car could be so handicapped by the wrong tires.

    With tires like that AWD only helps you get out of control quicker! AWD does nothing for braking and only really helps in the corners w/ the right driver behind the wheel.
