Wow, I'm so glad I chose these tires and put a mild stretch on them with the 9" wheels! There is no appreciable squirminess to be had - they feel better than every A/S i've ever run. And I'm coming off of some pretty awesome summer tires - PSS's!

I really am impressed with this michelin product. If they weather the upcoming storms well I will be very pleased.

I just mean it's a ton of spokes!

The stock 189s are my choice for winter due to their simplicity (for comparison).

ashmostro all that tire looks badass.


The 1er spends this type of weather on the sidelines. When it's dry out i'll hoon around on the summer tires a bit. The Accord and E90...well mostly the Accord will eat the heavy rain.

Yeah, the problem with DC is you have a crazy mix of drivers. From people that are from the North and super experienced, to people who have never seen snow. DC is too transient. And that's why I try to drive as minimally in the snow around here as I can. You never know what tuckfard is going to randomly spin out into your path here.

That said, snow driving can be fun, and I did drive the 335 over 400 miles through that blizzard we had in 2010 (with over 2 ft of snow).

I'm going to stick it out another week, but it should be fine based on the weather. Looks like we're done with snow
