Ventured out today in the xi (with stock sport tires) and let's just say that I'm in the market for some Blizzaks.
I was on a small decline and couldn't stop at all - almost ran into a truck in front of me. The only thing I could do was let go of the brakes and turn to the left of it. I'm sure if the dude was looking his rear view mirror that he thought I was going to hit him. No fun.
