Well I just got back from Harvard...took me 3 hours because of traffic to my place, should take 30min MAX.

The 08 was awesome, no issues. A couple of times the traction control light came on, but no problems.

I have Dunlop Winter Sport M3's on.


Oh my "No Hill Holder" light came on, not sure what that means hahaha.

You and your wacky 08 have a hill holder feature if you didn't know already.

I drove home from work around 2:00 with my Falken summer tires on.... wasn't too bad but got squirrelly when I wanted it to. I went to my parents' house around 5:00, shuffled their cars around the driveway, fired up the compressor, and swapped out my RS wheels/Falkens for my WRX wheels/Blizzaks. I picked up Jason's stock wheels last night, and my friend picked them up this morning along with my Blizzaks, brought them to his work to get them mounted, and dropped them back off at the house this afternoon - can't beat that. I <3 snow tires and this storm. Can't wait til Sat. night too when that storm comes.

All we got here was ice, and since my car is covered in a sheet of ice I am not looking forward to cleaning it off.

No offense Erik, but you crashed because you were impatient. ;)

is the tread on mine...
Nokian Hakkapeliitta RSI's on a 2007 STi. they did great. plenty of traction and grip at all angles

Snow tires are definatly worth it, as ive showed not-erx. the RE92's can get you by on the 1st winter but not a 2nd with the vtread wear.
