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

Maybe...but not with the potholes.
