Woke up this morning and i wasn't expecting the snow storm we got today. This is my first winter with the Si. I was good for the most part this morning buy my tires are done for. I bearly any tread left on my Falkens so i was sliding and relianing on my VSA from keeping me from getting balled up. My son's school closed today so i took off to be with them. I'm heading out now, to Discount Tire to get some new winter rubbers.:coffee:

I wasnt expecting it either.... I still have my HFPs with summer tires. Needless to say, the drive to work was rather interesting. Spun out in the parking lot, nearly crashed into a curb in my work-place parking lot.

Changing them back to the stock rims/all seasons tonight in the snow oughta be a shitload of fun, for sure. Lol.

I finally got my new rubbers. I got some Hankook W300's I've had them a couple times before. Their a great Snow/Performance tire, and cheap. I'll keep em' on till about March then get some new Falkens or Kumho's.

Wow thats love right there. I couldn't do it, couldn't use my car as a trainer. Especially in the snow, like this. :SHOCKED:

I probably would just because in the mornings its cool and hell. And i know summer tires suck when its cold and wet out. Their goings to be some snow, rain and little sun during the next week.

haha but now she wouldn't be able to say no if I wanted to pick up some Exedy clutch... I will tell her she messed it up learning on it.

So how's the snow and road condition around cbus now? I'm flying back tommorow and I hope my car's not buried in snow...
