Edmonton blizzard = AWD fun!

Did we ever get a massive dump of snow here in Edmonton over the last 24 hours (~20 cm)! AWD + Blizzaks makes for an unstoppable combination... I'm loving it!!!

In previous winters I've never had problems with the Blizzaks and RWD...but this past storm dumped some serious snow....I haven't even attempted to take the Bimmer out yet! Right now, I'm bombing around the city with the wifey's 4x4 V8 Pathfinder with Blizzaks! Friggin beast is unstoppable in the snow.

Garage List
2007 BMW 335i  [4.50]
I have blizzak ws60's on and I got around no problem all day. Although I did find out that my car is way to low for winter and have to put the stock springs back on.

I was plowing the streets everywhere I went. I really hope my lip isn't beat to hell.

For the car I've found both Bridgestone Blizzak LM22 and ContiWinterContact TS10S quite good in snow, but not as good as my skis.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as the snow is light .. just plow right through! I do!
