Some loser was driving 30km/h on Lougheed the other day and the road was completely clear. Was causing more problems because it was holding up traffic and people were trying to get around it. Idiot!

I got a set of 17" M6 replicas with winter tires from Tiretrends in Port Moody.
Apparently I got the only set that they had becuase the factory would be producing another run until sometime in early 09 I think.

Give them a call and see what the status is.

Don't assume that cause some of us roll SP rims in the winter means we're running summers on them

LM-25's FTW

Personally, I see a lot of 3'ers rolling with rims that are too nice to have winter tires on right now........you don't buy those for the annual saltfest!

But let's face it. How well you go in the snow is decided by whats inside your head as much as whats inside your fenders. Lets be careful out there. On the first day of the snow everyone was mellow, on the second day it looked like Ken Block was about to coming wizzing down my street.

Saw a white E93 335 still driving on 230 rims. I don't think it was running 19" winter tires.

Whatever. If I wanted your opinion I would have given it to you!

I wasn't originally picking a fight (at least until you piped up). I was just expressing fustration that people over-panic because they don't know how to handle a car in various driving conditions. You wonder why so many BC'ers made it on Canada's Worst Drivers this year.

doesn't change the fact that you came off as an ass with your first post. nobody's trying to pick a fight. all flyer333 said was to drive slower, which really is the most important thing when it's -10 outside regardless of whether there's snow everywhere or not.
